Please Stay Calm - A location based zombie MMO

**UPDATE - August 23rd, 2011**

Our new website is LIVE: www.pleasestaycalm.com

**UPDATE - August 10th, 2011 **

Hey folks... it's been awhile since our last update because we have been in crunch mode throughout the summer.

Well the time is upon us.. we're very close to our launch! We hope to be in the App Store for September 16th.

Here's our neat-o motion comic cinematic intro:



Also an up to date screenshot:



***** Older Information *****

Built by Massive Damage Inc, Please Stay Calm is a new type of location based game that features massive multiplayer and co-operative gameplay on a persistent alternate reality layered on top of the real world. Fight for survival in a world faced with a zombie apocalypse.

Some tidbits about the gameplay:
  • survive, scavenge and fight using real world locations to build up your character
  • asynchronous co-operative multiplayer using location based teams and public events where anyone can join in the fight against the hordes
  • combat, scavenging and crafting are all mini-game based actions with real strategic and reflex based gameplay that rewards player skill

Looks great? How can you tell? There's no game play footage in the video at all! Couple of drawings and that's IT! How can anyone form an opinion of how the actual game is? You can't!!! Give us something to see, and maybe we can start to look forward to this--or not!

We'll definitely be posting more stuff as we finalize the look and feel. There is some gameplay in the video but yeah we didn't zoom up on it as we're still actively building out the gameplay.

Some tidbits about the gameplay:
  • survive, scavenge and fight using real world locations to build up your character
  • asynchronous co-operative multiplayer using location based teams and public events where anyone can join in the fight against the hordes
  • combat, scavenging and crafting are all mini-game based actions with real strategic and reflex based gameplay that rewards player skill

More info soon as we march towards BETA (BETA & early access signups: http://pleasestaycalm.com)

Thanks,
Ken

Our aim is that you can play this game from anywhere so we'll make sure it's available globally on all the App Stores.

We'll likely launch in smaller areas first to get all the scaling done properly as we're building a lot of unique multiplayer & teamplay features that need a fair amount of testing.

Thanks,
Ken

So this is another fighting zombies game? How many and how strong these zombies are so that the character needs to stay calm? I'm wondering how great the game will be and i hope it won't let me down.
