Hipster Zombie Games

This Highly Addictive Arcade Game Lets You Take on the Hipster Zombies

— August 1, 2013 — Pop Culture
Hipster Zombies is an arcade action game where you defend your neighborhood (ironically) against hipsters who have been turned into zombies. The developers at Sharkbomb Studios are clearly over society's obsession with zombies and poke fun with a keen sense of hipster-hating humor.

As a hoodie-wearing human, it's your mission to fight back against the hipster zombies and keep it real. Instead of using bullets, you have an array of weapons including mason jars, typewriters and vinyl records. As you navigate through the game, you must assassinate your opponents in stereotypical hipster hangout spots like coffee shops, thrift shops and hat shops. You'll also encounter different breeds of zombie villains, like the biketard hipster who is incapable of riding a bicycle, but the irony of the situation gives him super speed.
Trend Themes
1. Arcade Action Games - Developing arcade action games with a unique and humorous theme, like Hipster Zombies, can disrupt the gaming industry by offering a fresh and engaging gameplay experience.
2. Satirical Game Development - Creating satirical games that poke fun at popular culture, such as society's obsession with zombies and hipster culture, presents an opportunity for disruptive innovation in the gaming industry.
3. Alternative Weaponry in Games - Incorporating unconventional and iconic objects, like mason jars, typewriters, and vinyl records, as weapons in games can add novelty and disrupt the traditional weapon-based gameplay in the gaming industry.
Industry Implications
1. Gaming Industry - The gaming industry can explore the potential of creating unique and satirical game titles, like Hipster Zombies, to attract a niche audience and disrupt the market with fresh ideas.
2. Entertainment Industry - The entertainment industry, specifically game developers, can tap into the demand for satirical and humorous content by creating games that mock and satirize popular culture trends, such as hipster culture or societal obsessions.
3. Creative Industries - By incorporating alternative weaponry, like mason jars, typewriters, and vinyl records, creative industries can explore new opportunities to redefine gameplay mechanics and challenge traditional conventions in the gaming and entertainment sectors.
