Maybe we could have different versions of the zombie with different names. We could make the pants recolorable to make them look different. Although the blood splatters on them would suffer a bit because they can't be alpha-blended with the background anymore.

Just use two recolorable areas, one for the pants, one to blend with the blood.

Kingdom of Loathing calls their reanimated corpses Zmobies and Zobmies. They populate the Misspelled Cemetary.

In keeping with tradition, we should let the artist decide (or atleast give their opinion more weight).

I was thinking just Zombie for now until variations can be made, then the variant name could be tacked on to each, like Rotting Zombie, Undead Hero, Zombie Stalker, etc. Plus there's likely to be other undead creatures in the future (I promise not to overkill on undead). ...if I had to pick from the list, I'd say Rothead, but whatever you all think is best is cool with me :mrgreen: .

For those who'd like a little background music as the ponder the word "Zombie", here is Jonathan Coulton performing his piece entitled... "Re: Your Brains"
