World War Z – Don’t leave any of your friends for dead

World War Z, if you know where to look, has been around for a considerable length of time.

It’s time to kill the boogeyman with strategic shooter John Wick Hex

Which is just what Good Shepherd Entertainment and Bithell Games have gone and done. Called John Wick Hex, it's a... strategy game? Seriously?

We'd like to think that you'd wind up with something like Snakeybus, a game so delightfully bonkers that we can't stop watching the trailer.
