Default Zombie Earth: A Massive Global, Location Based, RPG (NitWitStudios)



Ever wonder if you could survive a Real World Zombie apocalypse? Now you can find out!


The Game


Zombie Earth is a Mobile Game App that turns the real world into an infected planet. It will be the first of it's kind available on mobile devices; a Zombie themed, location-based, role playing game (RPG).

Using your device's GPS capabilities, your location will be mapped out with other players using real-time updated coordinates. The game board will be the real World Map.

You will be equipped with one weapon and one item to start and must fight your way through infected players to earn XP to upgrade your character and Z-Bucks which can be used to purchase improved weapons and items from the Survivor Shop.

Just like in the real world, your weapons and items have a limited amount of firepower and range. In order to protect yourself against your Zombie infected peers, you must get close enough to them to use your weapons. We have some advanced algorithms in place to ensure that all players will be able to interact with each other regardless of their location or the density of players nearby.

If you were unable to survive a Zombie attack, don't fret. Now it's time for the real fun to begin. As a zombie, you have the choice of purchasing an antidote at any time to cure your infection OR you can infect your friends and complete strangers to make them suffer the same fate!

Should the entire world be infected and turned into Zombie's, player's will be reverted back to human and the virus will start with Patient Zero once again. *All player progress, inventory, Z-Bucks, etc. will be saved and applied to the new "outbreak"

This game is a fun, intense and never-ending challenge. Nowhere is safe. Zombies can strike when you least expect it -- what will you do to survive?




Features


Cross Platform Play allows players to interact with each other, regardless of what type of device they are on (iPhones, iPads, Android Phones, Android, Tablets, etc.)

Character roles currently include Medic, Police, Hunter, and Zombie. Each role has different benefits and skill sets. Players are able to change roles at anytime during the game. Each role will track it's own progress and unlock weapons, skills and other unique upgrades.


Z-Bucks in-game cash system will allow player's to earn money and purchase better weapons and items to help attack, defend, or heal yourself and other players. The game will only have this one type of "financing", so no need to collect multiple cash objects like gems, rubies, donuts, elixir or any other weird thing.

Push notifications will notify you of nearby enemies, attacks, and more. Player's can fine tune what notifications they receive so that they only get the ones they want.

Advancement, Skills & Mutations will allow you to level-up and customize your character with a unique skill set, giving them an edge on the battlefield.

Achievements when unlocked will reward players with experience, Z-Bucks, bragging rights and more. Players can then show them off on social networks and player leader boards. Contests and giveaways will be integrated throughout time. Will you be mankind's last hope and fight off the Zombie Infection the longest?

You bring up a good point!

Since the game is based on peer-to-peer interactions there is always the risk of not enough players in the game to make it engaging and fun for others.

Lack of players may result in difficulty with location based (ranged) attacks. We have considered this and have already begun implementing a more dynamic algorithm that will ensure that every player will be able to interact with others, even if there are not enough players in their surrounding area. This will ensure that everyone has the ability to play the game and develop their character's skills regardless of player population near their location.
