Till Death do us part: ‘Dead Island’ hostos contest for zonbie-themed wedding

Video game developer Deep Silver is hosting a contest to win a zombie-themed wedding in honor of the upcoming release of “Dead Island: Riptide.”

Yes that’s right: now you can have the zombie wedding you always wanted! All you have to do is a) Be a really big fan of “Dead Island“, and b) record a video explaining why you and your fiance are the ideal undead candidates for a zombie wedding ceremony.

From Deep Silver’s explanation of the contest:

“The search for two engaged ‘Dead Island’ superfans who will be zombified for a Dead Island twist on a traditional beach wedding ceremony takes in every cemetery, grave and crypt the length and breadth of the UK. In return for becoming the official Dead Island Riptide zombie bride and groom, Deep Silver will host a Dead Island Riptide-themed zombie wedding ceremony and send the winning undead couple on a luxury Caribbean honeymoon.”

So let’s review: you can win an all-expenses-paid beach wedding and Caribbean honeymoon… with zombies. Sounds pretty awesome, right? Y’know, as long as you’re an insanely dedicated fan of all things zombie.

Applicants are encouraged to record a short video message to YouTube explaining why they are the ideal undead candidates for the ceremony, and to share the link via the official “Dead Island: Riptide” Zombie Wedding page on Facebook.

“Dead Island: Riptide” is the follow-up to 2011’s wildly successful “Dead Island” zombie video game. It picks up right where “Dead Island” left off, with the four survivors stranded on the island of Palanai after it has been overrun by zombies. The wedding contest is a way to celebrate the release of “DI: Riptide.”

I suppose there are worse ways to interpret “till death do us part.”
