Upcoming Location Based Zombie Survival Game: City of the Dead

Hi everyone!

The development of Xenod Games' first iOS game is nearly done and we think it's a good day to announce it, a location based zombie survival game for iPhone/iPod Touch, Cities of the Dead.

You might already be familiar with all the location based features, so let's go directly to where CotD is unique:

- It's more realistic, less cartoon-ish. As CotD has serious plots and background stories, we wanted to make it more The Walking Dead style, less Plants vs Zombies style.
- A part of our goal is to "simulate" what a city would become if the zombie apocalypse really happens. In CotD, you'll run into quests and events related to the ruin and rebuild of human society.
- A deep and semi-hardcore character customization system. More like a simplified S.P.E.C.I.A.L system, if you are familiar with the Fallout series.

Cities of the Dead is now in the final QA and adjustment phase, if everything goes smooth, it'll hit the AppStore some point next month.

Here's some screenshots taken from my iPhone, and we'd like to know if you are interested in CotD and if you like the dark and realistic style. And please feel free to ask anything

Basically it works this way: the user/player holds a mobile device with a LBS application installed; the application read the location of him, and some API provided by Foursquares, or Gowalla, or Google Places, to get the information of nearby venues, so that he can check-in there and get something, like a coupon or a virtual item, or a comment of the venue submitted by other users.

And here's the all-mighty wiki!

Hope it helps
