The developer of Charlie Murder calls the game a spiritual successor to the fan favorite I MAED A GAM3 W1TH Z0MB1ES 1N IT!!!1.

No Caption Provided

Ska Studios, the developer behind Charlie Murder and The Dishwasher, has quietly released one more game before 2013 came to a close, officially listed on the Xbox Marketplace as TIME VIKING!!!!!ANDSPACERAPTOR. You can download a trial game for free on Xbox 360 and get the full version for $1.

An earlier version of the game, simply named Time Viking, released on Windows Phone alongside Z0MB1ES (on teh ph0ne) in 2012. Ska Studios considers it a spiritual successor to its earlier and lesser known I MAED A GAM3 W1TH Z0MB1ES!!!1, another Xbox Live Indie Game that Ska released for $1. The game didn't get as much attention as Ska's later releases, but it was well liked by those who found it, including many Gamespot readers.

The game's description is just as ridiculous as its title, and hence useless in describing what it actually is. But as you can see from its trailer (which is worth watching for the song alone), it plays like a 2D psychedelic shooter for one or two players, in the signature Ska Studios art style.
