Some of the guys who worked on this game released a sort of spiritual successor to it last October called Ray's the Dead. Ray's is more Pikmin-like. Unfortunately, it isn't super great. There are some control issues, the story and writing is mostly miss with a lot of 80's reference, but I had a decent enough time with it. It was made by a small 3-man team and self-published. There is definitely some callbacks to Stubbs in the form of dance sections and stuff.

If you're looking for a quick Halloween game next season, look into it!

This game contains endless screaming. It is the most 2020/2021 game to date.

Ahh, the early 2000s - when you only needed one or two voice actors to perform a single take for each line, and all other sound effects were taken from The Free Sound Library. :b

Stubbs was super fun back in the day, but super rough that it hasn't had anything more than token improvements made to it.

God, for all their clumsiness, I love games of this era. Fuck your "systems" and your "metagame" we have one idea and we're going to do an absolutely adequate job of executing it.

What a bizarre artifact of yesteryear, its rerelease is baffling, and cynically you might think it's a shameless cash grab, but it's such odd property to resell and do basically nothing with, its hard to see who this appeals to... other than Jeff.

This is why I wished the guys using ducking in their audio set up. I know it's not perfect but it'd be better in cases like this where you can't hear Jeff and just AAAAAAGGGGHHHHHHHHHHHH.

I played this game back when it was released on PC and managed to complete it in 1 sitting but because I played through it so quickly, I just can't remember if there was no music through the game while also remembering that the soundtrack was one of the best aspect of the game.

I'd say they should have an option to turn that scream sound effect off, but then what sound would be left?

Senator Lieberman stated "It's just the worst kind of message to kids, and furthermore it can harm the entirety of America's youth". Wideload Games responded by saying that Stubbs is a zombie, not a human cannibal.

I remember Stubbs from when I was in like middle school and having a good amount of fun with it. It had the weird side effect of being my first exposure to some digital rights stuff when one day it was seemingly unceremoniously ripped out of my library never to be seen again. Young me was baffled and felt legitimately robbed.

@panfoot: yep! It was revealed at a PS4 event before PS4 was out. Might have been the E3 before and it looked great. I had been waiting for it all generation only for it to come out at the very end.

16 years from release it’s time for a reminder that Stubbs the Zombie was always bad.

I owned the original release back on steam from when it first came to PC and was surprised that they literally just updated the old title instead of being listed as a new product. So good for owners of the previous release I guess?
