Parallax scrolling zombies are dead brilliant

This brilliant site promotes zombie drama The Walking Dead by drawing on its comic heritage.

We're big fans of TV zombie drama The Walking Dead at Creative Bloq, and we were gripped by this website launched to promote it. The imaginative site harks back to the show's comic strip origins and makes clever use of parallax scrolling to pull you into its sick and depraved world.

"We came at this as fans of the show, first and foremost," says  lead designer Gavin Beck. "With this drive, we wanted to create a world within the Walking  Dead that fans could explore and appreciate. 

"To achieve this, we looked to  several existing technologies and techniques such as HTML5, CSS3, JavaScript/jQuery, Web Audio/HTML5 Audio, and parallax scrolling. The challenge was to find a unique approach to incorporate all these  methods into a single engaging experience across all platforms."

We reckon they've pulled off that challenge admirably. A great way for fans to geek out, and newbies to discover the show.
