That part on names ...of the dead remindes me of the HOTD (highschool of the dead anime ratio it s an anime)


Rated 5 / 5 stars

Great game!

I love making him do all the reactions. xD I feel connected to my zombie, man. I feel like he'll get too smart and escape. xD But, I agree with some of the other people here, a skip button on the scene or something would be great, it gets annoying having to go through some of the scenes that take a little longer over and over again.

Excellent Game. Very well done

This is one of the best games on newgrounds that i have seen. I would like to see another Lab of the Dead only this time working on a cure for the virus.

Relaxing, Tranquil, Humanist

Lab of the Dead hails an addicting plot, tranquil music and a refreshingly humanist perspective on the zombie apocalypse. While the psychology can be a little demented at times, the game leaves its players feeling good overall.

It is slow to start. And I did have to lower the image quality for performance reasons. But the game makes up for these through its tranquility. The humorous animations and script also contribute to the game's mood.

My only major complaint is that I've achieved 98.7% completion, rather than the 100% I was hoping for. The remaining 1.3% will never be gotten, because the only tasks I have left are tedious and less interesting than the intimate relationship I've formed with my she-zombie.

If there's a cutscene I missed because I didn't achieve 100% completion, it should have triggered once the most philosophically humanist of items is displayed in the most appropriate manner to your zombie friend, if you know what I mean. That seems the most humanist of endings, after all, if you know what I mean. If you know what I mean.
