“Cottage of Doom” remains as one of my favorite zombie games. It’s only game where I’ve seen the concept of barricading yourself from zombies done well.

Plus, it was created by a single developer and all the source code is open and free. You can download this tiny game here.

It might not fit with the format of this blog, but a single developer that wins awards for a game that he’s also released the source code for, deserves some recognition. Also, I hope this acts as a ping for him to continue work on Dead Rock, a graphically updated version of Cottage of Doom. He has taken a long break from Dead Rock in order to complete work on Eufloria (which is current in development for the iPad), which also looks slick.
