I'm a senior games designer at doublesix, the studio behind the recent PlayStation Network exclusive Burn Zombie Burn!

Naturally, there's a selection of apparel available for purchase as well.

In addition to our new Home space, there's also a patch out now that has YouTube and background music support. This means you can record in-game footage and then upload it to YouTube to show off your skills.
