There’s something truly breathtaking about a giant horde of zombies. There’s beauty to be found in a whole gaggle (What’s the term for multiple zombies? a bunch?, a swarm? a romero?) of zombies coming over a hill to devour brains. It can really take your breath away. That is, if it’s not your brains.
And that’s what the free Zombie Outbreak Simulator game gives you: the chance to watch other people get mobbed by a bunch of zombies…in a google maps version of Washington DC.
Developed by Binary Space, an Australian Flash game developer, the game lets you choose such variables as the number of zombies, civilians and policemen, whether civilians are armed and even how long infection takes. Then you start up the invasion and watch up to 2,000 zombies swarm all over our nation’s capital. Binary Space’s website says that the game’s a teaser for Class 3 Outbreak, a real-time-strategy game where you control police trying to fight zombie outbreaks on google maps. Hey, if we can fight brain-munchin’ zombies in Times Square or Disney World, count us in.
