Dead Space is a series of survival/horror video games, animated movies, and novels. The first game in the series, released in 2008, was created by Glen Schofield, developed by Visceral Games and published by Electronic Arts. The franchise is set in the 26th century, taking place in and around spaceships and on alien worlds.
The stories revolve around the discovery and duplication of alien artifacts called "Markers". The markers are seen as potential power sources, but cause paranoia and hallucinations in the living, as well as the reanimation and mutation of dead tissue. The resulting zombies were dubbed "Necromorphs", and they are the primary antagonists of the Dead Space franchise.
