Dead Pixels References
Hello everyone. I thought it might be fun to count how many references there are in Dead Pixels towards games, movies, and the like. Feel free to add any that you've found:

Dawn of the Dead: A shop called Andy's "sniper crosshair" is a tribute to the character who was trapped inside a weapons shop in the 2004 remake of Dawn of the Dead.

Stubbs the Zombie: A shop is called Stubb's something. Seems like a game reference.

Army of Darkness: One of the shotguns is aptly named "the boomstick."

Planet Terror: E.L. Ray is the name of a shop. I believe this was also the name of the male lead in Planet Terror.

The achievement "The Beginning" requires you to kill 1968 zombies. This number is the year of which Night of the Living Dead was produced.

Nice. I knew the number meant something, but I wasn't sure what. Anyway, I've thought of a few more:

Resident Evil: The ink ribbon you use to save in one of the game modes is a reference to the save system in RE.

Codename Veronica: I think the "C Veronica" store name is a reference to this game (never played it myself. I think it was another Resident Evil game).

Resident Evil Again: The unique gun you start out with in Last Stand is called "Wesker" which is the name of a character in RE.

The wesker sidearm that you get in last stand is named after Agent wesker from the resident evil series. also there is a store called "Max Books" that i believe is named after Max Brooks. he is the author of "the zombie survival guide" and "World War Z." there is another store called "UMBRELLAS" with red and white alternating letters. i assume this is a reference to the umbrella corporation from resident evil. there are others that i have noticed, but i cant recall them at the moment.

The fact the game comes in several chapters or stories is an obvious reference to L4D.
There's some blood writing on a building that even says " I love you Zoey!"

Also to go along with Left 4 Dead is the description of "hardest" difficulty described as having "the ai director hate you."

All of the gun types are named after resident evil characters
Redfield - Claire Redfield, Chris Redfield
valentine- Jill Valentine
chambers- Rebecca Chambers
burton- Barry Burton

Bub's (store); probably refering to the zombie that 'Frankenstein' had trained or domesticated in Day of the Dead (80s version)

Great finds!
I was also thinking the "fireworks" could be a reference to "Land of the Dead."

The bar look's like Moe's from The Simpsons

There is a reference to L4D - You can find writings on walls like "we love you Zoey" and something like "Rest in Peace, Bill(refering to one campain in L4D2 where you meet survivors from the first game and they say that Bill sacrificed himself to save them)"

The character sprites are more than inspired by classic Megaman (look at the face)

A sign on the last level references "Little Rock" and "Witchita." This is a direct reference to the movie Zombieland.
