Here Comes the Bride, All Dressed in… Gore?

Deep Silver wants you and your true love to get married on their dime, they’ll even pick up the honeymoon tab! Only there are a few catches. Like having to be in engaged and letting your special day be zombified in honor of Dead Island Riptide’s launch! For more information on how to get involved in this very unique wedding ceremony read the full press release below!

Deep Silver today announced the search for a bride and groom for a zombie-themed wedding, which will become the centerpiece of the UK launch celebrations for the new Dead Island Riptide videogame, released later this year.

The search for two engaged Dead Island superfans who will be zombified for a Dead Island twist on a traditional beach wedding ceremony takes in every cemetery, grave and crypt the length and breadth of the UK. In return for becoming the official Dead Island Riptide zombie bride and groom, Deep Silver will host a Dead Island Riptide-themed zombie wedding ceremony and send the winning undead couple on a luxury Caribbean honeymoon.

Applicants are encouraged to record a short video message to YouTube explaining why they are the ideal undead candidates for the ceremony, and to share the link via the official Dead Island Riptide Zombie Wedding page on Facebook (www.facebook.com/DeadIslandRiptideZombieWeddingUK).

A panel from Deep Silver will then review all applications and contact a shortlist of candidates to see if they have what it takes for the ultimate undead accolade. The closing date for applications is appropriately Valentine’s Day, 14th February 2013, with the winning couple being announced at the beginning of March.

Amy Namihas, Head of Marketing & Public Relations, Deep Silver UK, said:


“For the launch celebrations of Dead Island Riptide we wanted to do something different, and a zombie wedding with all the trappings certainly fits the bill and has not been done on this scale before. We’re excited to see the application videos from our prospective undead bride and groom and look forward to hosting the wedding of the fear.”

Good luck to anyone entering and keep us posted if you’re looking to take the plunge into this contest! For those of you not getting married like something out of “Thriller”, you can expect to see Dead Island Riptide this April on PlayStation 3, Xbox 360, and PC.
