Zomb-ocalypse simulator!

Sci-Fi & Fantasy

“Are you ready for the inevitable Zombie Apocalypse?” This is something I ask myself every single day, as I’m sure you and every other right thinking person does. If you’re not sure if you’re prepared to face the horrors of cannibalistic undead, the Zombie Outbreak Simulator at Class3Outbreak.com offers you a vital tool.

Using a GoogleMaps layout of the area, it allows users to simulate a zombie infestation in Washington D.C.  (Unfeeling creatures that used to be human, but now only want take your very lifeblood in D.C.? It’s a stretch, I know, but stick with me here.) The simulator lets you tweak a variety of factors and see how quickly the infection will spread or be contained. You can choose the percentage of the population that’s armed, initial number of zombies, the number of police around and more. Most importantly you can decide if the zombies are the traditional Romero-slow zombies, fast Boyle-Rage infected or sprinting Snyder-undead.

Using these factors you can calculate what’s most important to your own personal survival and how you should react. Do you go to ground in your house and wait for the civilian authorities to contain the problem? Do you round up some friends and weapons and find a defensible position? Or do you grab a car to escape the contaminated area? (A word of advice, even with 60% of the population armed a mere 100 fast zombies win.)

If you don’t already have a plan for World War Z, I suggest you spend some quality time running some potential outcomes on the simulator and soon. You don’t have to thank me for saving your life. Having you as a human ally instead of a hungry zombie will be thanks enough.

Here and there ...

  1. This is amazing. In 20 minutes, I’ve watched zombies decimate the entire civilian populace. The lone survivor is a police officer who happened to find his way into a building for most of the melee. He is now wandering the map, his AI leading him wherever the ghouls aren’t.

    It’s spectacular how engrossing this is; when he left his shelter, I almost yelled to him to turn back. As I type this in another tab, the constant “tap! tap!” of his service weapon gives me comfort. When it’s silent for too long, I rush back to check on him. It is now 5000 vs. one, but I believe in the indomitable human spirit, and will stay with him until he wipes every one of those stenches off the map or dies trying.
