Another zombie survival game.
You serious dude? Only cos I'd counter there aren't any other zombie survival games I can think of, especially ones that focus on management... or any management.
There's a lot of zombie shooty face games though.
Incorrect; there was a decent micromanagement browser-based title, World of the Living Dead, released not more than a year ago that made an interesting change.
But my comment did contain a higher dose of cynicism than usual, because zombies are used to sell games without any attention to the quality of a story or context. The Walking Dead is the only game which had defied this trend recently, focusing on character development and interactive storytelling.
OXM might forgive me (though I doubt it) for talking about the upcoming The Last Of Us. A game which does include 'zombie'-like monsters, but the focus is - like The Walking Dead - about human survival and the costs we're prepared to pay in order to keep our lives.
Management systems or no, I can't see why we need another game that brings the inexplicable and overused undead back to torment us with their growls and flesh-torn appendages, save for the fact that it will sell.
