Update time! I’m now community manager for Z.

Hey, everyone!

If you’re big into zombies, love anything card or board game related, or are passionate about comics and cosplay, please take a moment to check out Z. — a digital trading card game on Kickstarter. Think of it as Magic: The Gathering meets The Walking Dead. I’m involved with the project as community manager, so we have 25 days and counting to make this thing happen!

We need to spread the word as much as possible, so if you could pass the link around or post an announcement on your blog, we’d appreciate every bit of help! You can also contact me exclusively at stephanie.carmichael@downwardviral.com for pics and more info.

If you’re interested in contributing to the cause, donating will get you tons of goodies (including a limited box edition). You can learn more about the rewards on our Kickstarter page.

Be sure to tell all the zombie lovers you know! And remember: Keep those shotguns handy.

Want to know more? Glad you asked!
