Zombie Studios was an American independent video game developer of console, PC, mobile, and web-based games. Founded in 1994, the company has developed two video games set in the Saw franchise, titled Saw: The Video Game and Saw II: Flesh & Blood.
The company was formed in 1994 as Zombie, LLC by Joanna Alexander and Mark Long, formerly of the Sarnoff Research Center. Alexander and Long founded Zombie after designing a virtual reality game console for Hasbro at Sarnoff in 1993. Zombie has designed and produced over 30 games for major platforms. From 1999 to 2004, the company was known as Zombie Inc. They created a value label in 2005, Direct Action Games, to design and produce value titles for both PC and consoles.
Zombie developed games for various platforms such as the Xbox 360, PlayStation 3, PSP, PS2, Xbox, PCs, and mobile phones. Their titles span a range of product genres, including first-person shooter, real-time strategy, puzzle, arcade, adventure, hunting, and simulation.
Their publishing and distribution relationships include Bethesda Softworks, Konami, Ubisoft, Activision, Atari, Microsoft, Disney, RealNetworks, NovaLogic, Take2, America's Army, Zango, Groove Games, THQ, Panasonic, Wild Tangent, Sony, BAM, Brash Entertainment, Ubisoft, Ignition Entertainment, Perfect World Entertainment, and Atlus.
