Zombie Studios was an American independent video game developer. It was formed in 1994 as Zombie, LLC by Joanna Alexander and Mark Long, formerly of the Sarnoff Research Center. Alexander and Long founded Zombie after they completed the design of a virtual reality headset for Hasbro at Sarnoff in 1993.[1] Zombie has designed and produced over 30 games for major platforms.[2] They created a value label in 2005, Direct Action Games, to design and produce value titles for both PC and consoles.

Zombie Studios shut down in January 2015 with its owners' retirement. Former staffers of the company subsequently founded a new studio, Builder Box Games (now Hardsuit Labs), who acquired some of Zombie Studio's former IPs.[3]

The developer was commissioned by the United States Armed Forces to co-develop a series of training and recruitment games. Some games were developed entirely by the developer, but some were co-developed with the U.S. Army Development Team, and others were made with other game developers.
