Outbreak! is a multiplayer online location based game. In order to play the game you must use your actual physical location.
You interact with the game using a map view, where Zombie infected zones are displayed as red circles, and Survivor zones are displayed as blue circles. The game also shows where dead Zombies are located, as they may become dangerous once again!
When you start the game you supply a user name and email address (don't worry, you won't get any emails, it's just for authentication). Once your account has been created you will be able to play the game. You will either be a Zombie or a Survivor, and this is decided based on your surroundings. Click 'Join the war' to view the map. This is where the game is played.
If you are a survivor to must move to red zones to attack zombies. With every zombie attack you have the chance to find supplies or take a Zombie limb. Supplies can be used to build a safe house as extra protection against the outbreak. You can use Zombie limbs to disguise yourself as a Zombie for a short period of time.
Zombies must move to the blue zones in order to attack survivors. Once a survivors health reaches zero, they will become a Zombie. When a Zombie is killed by a survivor they will have the option to re-spawn as a Survivor.
Attack others to gain experience, and earn achievements. You will also level up as you gain experience, increasing your attack range.
Email email@example.com to request NPCs, as this is a beta feature. NPCs are dummy players, allowing people in remote areas to play the game.

Cool concept. Great to see more people joining. I'm kinda a geek though and would love to see charts on population and virus growth over time

Great concept. I've touched an infected and my status didn't change. Just says there is an infected in my area.
Favorite app on android. I see more and more players everyday. Only its lacking some sort of way for users to converse.
Northern Ireland needs more players. Potentially a must have game with more players
Lots of players in SoCal. I'm new to game. How do you hide? Thx Kev :)
