"Otis! You're OK! Thank god!"
—Greg, upon reaching the Security Room

Greg Simpson is a survivor appearing in Dead Rising and Dead Rising: Chop Till You Drop.

He is a Willamette Patrol employee held hostage by Adam MacIntyre, and is trapped on the Space Rider during the scoop Out of Control.

Out of Control[edit | edit source]

Main article: Out of Control

After Frank defeats the psychopathic clown Adam MacIntyre, he stops the Space Rider using the control panel. Greg, who has been held hostage by Adam, then steps off the ride in a dizzy state. Frank offers to take him to some other survivors in the Security Room, and Greg reveals that he knows a shortcut there.

He then leads Frank to the women's bathroom in Wonderland Plaza, and tells him that a vent in the ceiling will bring him to Paradise Plaza. Once Frank and Greg are in the bathroom, jump up onto the sink and go over to the left-hand side to find the shortcut entrance, which will take you to the women's bathrooms in Paradise Plaza. After Frank and Greg travel through the vent, he follows Frank to the Security Room and cheers when seeing Otis safe and sound.

It's possible that he escaped Willamette with Otis and the others when the special forces arrived.

Chop Till You Drop[edit | edit source]

In Chop Till You Drop, talking to Greg will open a shortcut to Cletus' gun shop.

Infinity Mode[edit | edit source]

Main article: Infinity Mode

In Infinity Mode, Greg appears in the Security Room from 2:00:00 to 2:07:00 and is armed with a Push Broom Handle. In his equipment he carries a Grapefruit, a Nightstick, a Lipstick Prop, a Perfume Prop, and a Paint Can.

Trivia[edit | edit source]

  • Greg is the only survivor, after being brought to the Security Room, not to reside in one of the four rooms. Instead, he stands next to Otis Washington.
  • Greg is the only survivor who, when he agrees to follow you, does not have the "JOINED" message shown. This message is present in Chop Till You Drop.
  • While following Greg to the shortcut, he will call out to Frank to follow him. This is an opportunity for a photo op.
  • Greg's shortcut is present in Infinity Mode.
  • The shortcut Greg shows Frank does not carryover to different playthroughs. Greg must be rescued in order for the shortcut to be used.
  • Greg does not actually appear on the Space Rider during gameplay and is only seen during the cutscene after the ride is deactivated.
  • While waiting for Frank to take the shortcut for the first time after dealing with Adam, the player can leave Wonderland Plaza and Greg will not take any damage like other survivors when Frank is in another section of the mall. However, Greg will remain in the bathroom until the player uses the shortcut, and after such Greg will no longer not receive damage when in another portion of the mall.
