Troubled Resident Evil: Operation Raccoon City studio releases The Bowling Dead on iOS

Despite its setbacks, Slant Six finds a publishing deal with Activision.

In June we reported that Resident Evil: Operation Raccoon City developer Slant Six Games had laid off nearly a quarter of its staff. Things had gone quiet for the troubled Canadian studio, but it recently resurfaced with a new universal iOS app called The Bowling Dead.

Published by Activision Mobile, The Bowling Dead is a game about what else, bowling for zombies. Slant Six co-owner Paul Martin tweeted that The Bowling Dead is now available globally for free on the App Store.

The game features over 40 levels, an unlimited survival mode, and several different bowling balls - like human heads. See it in action in the video below.
