On August 16, 2009, exactly one year ago today, I MAED A GAM3 W1TH Z0MB1ES 1N IT!!!1 released to the Xbox LIVE Indie Games marketplace. Over the course of a year, Z0MB1ES has experienced overwhelming success that nobody (not even James) could have ever predicted. A humongous thanks goes out to you and the entire indie gaming community for supporting the game the way you have.

With that said, we will not be celebrating the anniversary today *gasp!* Why? Well, it’s because our “super awesome surprise” has taken longer to prep than we expected and requires another week of baking time. Instead, we’ll be waiting until next Monday, August 23rd to party and at that time will cut into the cake, break out the party hats and be officially celebrating Z0MB1ES‘ success. But if you can’t contain your excitement for another seven days, we won’t hold it against you.

Thanks for the support and watch for a surprising Z0MB1ES surprise next week on Monday, August 23rd.

Update: Check out the nom’tastic looking Z0MB1ES cake that Nate Sieko made!
