Forget Foursquare and Google Places, this is the check-in app for Android that you should all get if you live in a city. Outbreak! Zombie Apocalypse is a pretty radical attempt at a location-based role playing game. The idea here, is that while you are out and about on the town, you can check into the app by scanning your thumb to see of zombies or clean people are around you and either attack them or infect them depending on your status. The more attacks you commit, the more points and rewards you receive. As a society that seems thrilled with zombie flicks, this game just screams “Awesome!”
This game has been out for a few weeks now, but seems to really be picking up steam as more users are signing up. For those of you in Portland, you better watch yourselves. I’m clean now, but can guarantee that I will be for long!
Cheers Timoh and everyone else!
