Deep Silver Reveal Couple for Zombie Wedding to Celebrate Dead Island Riptide Launch

Deep Silver today revealed the identity of the real-life couple who will be joined in undead matrimony at a legally recognised zombie-themed wedding in London on 23rd April 2013, celebrating the launch of new zombie game, Dead Island Riptide.

The search to find two engaged Dead Island superfans, who were willing to be zombified for a legally-binding wedding, began in January and the ceremony will be the centrepiece of the celebrations for the launch of Dead Island Riptide on 26th April. After being inundated with video applications, Deep Silver has selected Jennifer Jones, 27, and Rob Blackmore, 31, whose application, genuine love for each other, and enthusiasm for the Dead Island franchise made them the ideal undead couple.

On hearing that they had won, Jennifer commented, “We’re thrilled to have been chosen to be the official zombie bride and groom for Dead Island Riptide! We’re big fans of Dead Island and the horror genre, and a zombie wedding is a dream come true for us. Thanks Deep Silver & Koch Media!

Here is the original application made by Jennifer and Rob.
