Zombies Rally for Australian Gamer Rights


Australian gamers will lurch around Sydney, Australia’s Hyde Park Fountain in support of R18+ games.

The fight for R18+ games in Australia has been long and bitter. To further the cause, gamers are uniting across Australia to dress up as zombies in an effort to both draw attention to the issue and, well, dress up as zombies.

The zombie walk, the second in a series, is boasting over 1,100 confirmed zombies, a huge increase from the 177 last November.

The walk is being put on by the group Aus Gamers United. “Right now, there is no R18+ rating for digital media in Australia, whatsoever. And anything that would otherwise qualify for such a rating is refused classification and denied release in this fine country of ours. This is a gross violation of civil liberties as adults, that we are refused a Mature rating for what is Mature content,” the group states.

The zombie walk will take place March 27 from 11 a.m. to 4 p.m. Whether this will serve to draw the proper attention to the cause remains to be seen, but hey, who’s going to argue with zombies?
