The Last Kids on Earth and the Staff of Doom is a brand-new kids action adventure video game inspired by the New York Times best-selling, Emmy award-winning universe of The Last Kids on Earth book series by Max Brallier.

Fans can immerse themselves in an all-new story, exploring the massive town of Wakefield and taking on hordes of zombies and massive monsters as their favourite characters whether solo or with friends and family. 

Matthew Berkowitz, CCO of Atomic Cartoons, said: “We’re thrilled that fans finally have the opportunity to experience The Last Kids on Earth and the Staff of Doom firsthand.

“The video game has been a long-time in the making, involving an incredible collaboration with the talented team at Outright Games.

“We had a blast at Atomic turning some of our favorite celebrities into zombies to mark this special occasion and we couldn’t think of a better way to kick off the start of yet another exciting adventure for the Last Kids universe. We hope the fans enjoy it!”

In addition to the best-selling books, an animated Last Kids Netflix series premiered in 2019 with a 66-minute special that won an Emmy Award for “Best Special Class Animation Program.”

It was followed by two additional seasons in 2020, and a special interactive episode entitled “Happy Apocalypse to You” started streaming on April 6th 2021.

To produce the interactive episode, Atomic Cartoons leveraged interactive Netflix technology that requires viewers to make choices using their remote control to advance the story.
