Hi everyone. The Heisei has ended, welcome to the Reiwa era. Over in Japan it is Golden Week, so they have lots of time off to celebrate and take in the new era.
Sadly, here in the UK we don’t have the time off, but fortunately Steam are helping us all celebrate with their amazing Golden Week Sale. Until Monday the 6th May some of the best games from Japan will have their prices slashed. This means that there are some amazing deals on all of our Japanese Steam releases, and many other games besides these:

It’s alive! It’s Alive!
It really is this time, because our brilliantly gory chain reaction shooter, OMG Zombies!, is out now on Nintendo Switch, and launches with an insane 75% off ‘early bird’ discount, slashing the price to just £0.99GBP / €1.09 / $1.24, until the 2nd April.
OMG Zombies! Is an awesome reimagining of a genuine classic: the critically acclaimed OMG-Z, a top-ten all-time Metacritic rated PSP game and ranked as Metacritic’s best action title ever released on PSP!
The City of Redfield has been hit by an outbreak of exploding zombies! For cool and unimportant reasons these suckers literally explode when shot, showering their zombie brethren with gore and causing chain reactions of showering zombie gibs with just a single bullet!
As a lone cop armed only with bare wit, a large-calibre sniper rifle and bullets coated in a zombie-exploding pathogen, you are the last man standing at the epicentre of a zombie outbreak. Your mission? To succeed where the police and army failed by clearing the streets of 8 different strains of bloodthirsty zombies and stop Armageddon in its tracks!
Use your sharpshooting skills to vanquish 100 branching levels of zombie hell across 40 unique environments in this hugely addictive chain reaction shooter. Earn 400 shiny medals and cold hard cash to buy 100 different upgrades, all designed to MAKE THOSE ZOMBIES EXPLODE!
So, make sure you take this chance to see what makes this gore-fueled chain reaction shooter the game you just can’t put down!
Not only does the Switch version include all the new upgrades from the PC and PS Vita versions of the game, but we’ve also made lots of awesome tweaks further improving the experience, all of which you can read about in a previous blog.
OMG-Z, the original PSP version of OMG Zombies! received some stunning reviews:
Defunct Games gave it 9.5/10 saying “OMG-Z is a simple masterpiece, the kind of game that sticks with you long after the ending cinema. Part action game and part puzzler, OMG-Z is one of the best games I've played this year!”
Eurogamer awarded it 9/10 and said: “A monstrously addictive quick-fire affair that utterly nails what on-the-go handheld gaming should be about.”
PlayStation Official Magazine UK awarded gave it 80% calling it: “more addictive than shelling pistachios.”
PocketGamer awarded it 4 Stars and said: “Laughing Jackal's latest offers challenge and depth in its mechanics, bottling the chaos of a zombie outbreak in a smartly designed puzzler.”
Meanwhile, Critical Indie Gamer looked at the PC version of OMG Zombies and said: “OMG-Zombies! is a bloody orgy of viscera and strategy that engages and rewards your tasty, tasty brain. If you only get bitten by one zombie game this year, this one comes highly recommended.”
