There is nothing like this on the market and gamers are going to love it.”

“We are delighted that we have found such a great publishing partner to bring our newest IP into other territories”, comments Dieter Schoeller, Managing Director of Headup Games. “Iceberg Interactive know the target group well and are no newcomers to the horror genre, bringing their Killing Floor expertise to the table and giving Trapped Dead the deserved momentum in retail.”
