Why did Loom Network choose "zombies" as characters of the course?

Why are "Zombies" choosen as a character instead of something else? What's the origin story of CryptoZombies?

A long time ago, the first popular interactive coding website was called ‘rails for zombies'. We chose zombies as a subtle homage to this website.

I’m sure most people don’t remember this, but at Loom, we’re all pretty senior programmers and it’s good memories from the past.

Taken literally, zombies are not suppose to have much for brains, so it means you can easily do this course without too much thinking.

I guess they simply named it as a reference to CryptoKitties and because Zombies are definitely cools.

Definitely feel they wanted a type of 'creature' that could interact with the CryptoKitty Contract to show how the Interface code for Solidity worked - and zombies are a great 'interactive' creature; also, their Zombies!
