Meet Sam B.

Once upon a time, Sam B was a rap star with a well known single, "Who Do You Voodoo?", to his name. Unfortunately, he never translated that single into greater success and has fallen on parlaying his one-hit wonder status into a gig at the Royal Palms Resort Hotel.

As is sometimes the case for people like Sam B, he was soon surrounded with fake friends and bad advisors. This led the once strong and self-confidant rapper down a path of self-destruction involving drugs and alcohol abuse.

Now he finds himself surrounded by zombies and we don't know quite yet just where that path will take him.

Techland also released a couple of screens showing Sam B in action.
