Deadrock Divide in the Indie MEGABOOTH


We are pleased to announce that we will be in the Indie MEGABOOTH at PAX Prime 13 in just a couple weeks! This will be our second time at PAX Prime as well as a second time in the MEGABOOTH. We couldn't be more excited. We had a chance to show off Deadrock to the fans in Boston and now we get to bring the game to all of you in Seattle. This show is going to be the best one yet.

But we are from Seattle so we are a little biased.


In the works: Deadrock Divide

Containment joins this year’s PAX10

Dear Internet Reader,

We are as confused as you are.

We have double checked the emails.

We have slapped each other repeatedly to make sure we are not sleeping.

We still weren’t quite sure to believe it until the actual web page launched.

Containment: The Zombie Puzzler has been selected as one of the PAX10 for the year 2012.




Containment Comes to Indie Royale

We have the pleasure of informing you that our most beautiful game, Containment: The Zombie Puzzler, is available for purchase as part of the current Indie Royale Bundle. This is an honor for us to be included with 4 other great games: Dungeon Defender, Data Jammers, Weird Worlds, and Brain Pipe.

This is how Indie Royale works.

-Get in early for a lower price on the bundle.

-The more people buy, the price goes up.

-Knock the price down by showing your support and paying more than the current price.

-All games are downloaded directly or redeemed on Steam and Desura.

We hope you stop by and use this opportunity to get Containment: The Zombie Puzzler at the lowest price yet. Even if you already own our game, check out the other games in our bundle and try something new out! It is definitely worth it at this price and supporting indie games feels good. Believe us, we support indie games too!


Official Announcement!

Seattle, Washington – Bootsnake Games, an independent startup founded by ex-developers of Pirates of the Burning Sea and the Supreme Commander franchise, announces its forthcoming game Containment, a Zombie Puzzler for iPad and PC/Mac. Containment transports the player to the sleepy town of Franklin – a town best known for its award-winning apple pie, the state's largest Science and History museum, and most recently, the Zombie horde feasting upon its citizens.

We at Bootsnake Games love Puzzle games. We've played and enjoyed pretty much every game in the genre. When we got together to make Containment, our own tile-based puzzle game, we discussed all the things we could improve to help move the genre forward. The two biggest items on our list were colored gem-based visuals and match-3 gameplay. Almost every game we had played used a variant of those things.

From the beginning, we wanted to shake things up a bit. By moving from match-3 to a new surround mechanic and replacing gems with 3D characters that animate in compelling ways, we've done it. We've also added a full Zombie-infested town that players will fight through during the game. Making use of this environment – as well as items picked up along the way – is the only way to contain the Zombie menace.

Our goal with Containment is to infuse Puzzle games with the personality they need, while retaining the great puzzle qualities that brought us to the genre in the first place.


We'll be posting our first real round of screenshots in the near future, but wanted to share at least one to help you get your head wrapped around what we're going for.
