Zombie Vikings DLC Adds Psychonauts’ Raz for Free

December 15, 2015Written by Alex Co

With Double Fine confirmed to be making Psychonauts 2, the fine developers over at Zoink decided to do a little cross promotion by adding “Raz-ombie” to Zombie Vikings.

Zoink consulted and collaborated with Double Fine’s Tim Schafer with the project, and this Zombie Vikings DLC will be available to everyone for free at a still unspecified date, which will also come around the same time a “huge update” for Zombie Vikings rolls out.

To make him fit into our style and universe of Zombie Vikings I immediately started designing this weird rotten viking version of him. Below you can see a few of the first sketches. It was important to me that even though he is now dead and a viking, you still feel that it’s Raz.

We also decided to give Raz-ombie his own signature move, and after bouncing a few ideas with Tim ended up designing this awesome bacon attack that good old Ford Cruller shoots from this head. We also wanted to give him a really special weapon. In the end, we got inspired by the two-headed baby in the Double Fine logo and gave him a pretty stunning double bladed sword!

Let’s hope more free Zombie Vikings DLC is on the way, and this won’t be the last guest zombie character.
