Outbreak! Zombies is a global location based multiplayer game. The free beta version of the game is currently available in the android market.

To play you simply download the app and enter a user name. You will then be randomly assigned a state, either infected or not infected. If you are not infected your goal is to survive the zombie apocalypse, if you are infected your goal is to spread the infection. Each user will be visible on a world map, and to infect someone you must be within 500 metres. Currently Dublin, Ireland is in over-run with zombies.

Each red marker is a zombie, and each green marker is a survivor. The game works best when there are lots of users, which is why I am posting it here. I am also trying to gather as much feedback and test scenarios as I can in order to make the full version a more complete and fun game.

There is more information on how to play available here.

There is also a forum here with a lot of discussion about the game.

Thanks and I hope you enjoy,

-Kev

Looks interesting! Mind adding screenshots here so more users can see it before going to the Market link?

Sure, here you go




There is also a facebook page trying to spread the word

To see how the infection can spread head to Ireland on your map, in Dublin there are a lot of zombies, simply hold you finger on any location for a couple of seconds to see users in that location.

This looks pretty awesome. Installed.

Can't wait until there are a ton more people signed up, so that I can find zombies around me.

Thanks! I'd really appreciate any feedback/suggestions. Would like to know how it handles on various devices too, I only have a Galaxy S and a Galaxy Europa to test on. Working on lots of new features at the moment, like notification service, and ability for people to fight back, along with a levelling system.. and hopefully I will be able to add achievements at some point, I just have to find the time.

Great idea! No one is near me though. I see a few zombies north of me about 60 miles. Gotta stay away from them

Cool idea, seems more fun to be an infected though.

What if Uninfected (clean) could set bombs or traps or similar (that have a certain shelf life or up-time) around their area to keep infected away, or immobilize them for a specified amount of time.

Just an idea to keep the clean folks involved.

Still, great idea.
