This cute and enjoyable MAGS entry with a living-dead female protagonist, is given one last chance to correct some wrongs in her life. You'll chuckle at the jokes as she serves coffee and sandwiches while making her prize winning cake; I'm surprised she doesn't spill the coffee with her zombie walk. Excellent music and nice graphics. This short game is well worth the time.

Pick of the Month

Chance of the Dead is a cute and very wordy game about a cheerleader that is brought back to life from her way too soon death and she gets a second chance. It all ends in a bake off contest and you solve some puzzles while the entertaining and a bit too wordy story keeps you on track. Some funny SFX and a fitting soundtrack make it a game you should be playing right now. Or just watch the spoilerfilled longplay here:

What do you get when you cross a zombie with a coffee machine? Well, it is 'Chance of the Dead'! A quite lovable game with plenty of dialogue. It sometimes amazes me people can make these kind of games in one month alone.

This must have been a solid contender for the MAGS competition, and well I just checked and saw it had been nominated for some AGS awards. Surely proof enough to check out this game.

I've enjoyed the game very much and loved the art, it's amazing what can be done with so few rooms.

Excellent game Ghost. I enjoyed this little beauty.

Good Game! The graphics were incredible! I felt a (expected or not) LucasArts feel in them. I recommend it!
