Corpseburg is a fun zombie survival sim that uses Google Maps to allow you to try and survive a zombie apocalypse in your home town!
You are a lone survivor in a zombie apocalypse and must explore, scavenge, fight and fortify defenses against the ever present threat of the shambling undead. The gameplay itself is a fairly simple, but fun survival game in which you must try to find weapons, food and medicine during the day, then fortify your position before resting up each night.
What makes Corpseburg stand out is it’s clever use of Google Maps that allows you to play anywhere in the world – including your own neighbourhood. This also means that the businesses and buildings that you loot are the actual real life building – so you break into your local pharmacy or school and ransack the them. It’s a nice touch that makes surviving the zombie apocalypse that little bit more personal!
“For the sake of your health, I really hope you have a damn good reason for calling me at four thirty in the morning, Stiles.”
“Dude, relax, don’t go all grumpy right away! Maybe I’m here to deliver a good message, eh? Maybe you should be happy to hear my voice!”
“I’m going to hang up now. For the record, I hate you.”
“Wait! And no, you don’t. I’m adorable.”
“Just a second! Please. C’mon, all I want you to do is give me a teeny-tiny answer to a really important question. Scott wants to know, too.”
“Don’t drag me into this. I told you this is a bad idea.”
“Why is he there. …Stiles, did you put me on speaker.”
“You didn’t object to it.”
“I didn’t get a chance to - okay, you know what. Go the fuck to sleep. Both of you. Don’t you have school tomorrow or something, why the heck is Scott even with you - “
“I’m wondering the same thing, believe me.”
“Well, technically we were finishing a school project, but then we watched a movie. Okay, back to my question. So, we were watching World War Z, right.”
“You didn’t even let me finish!”
“No. Absolutely not.”
“I told you he wouldn’t wanna answer. He’s not that cool.”
“Shut up, dude. But I guess you’re right… ‘s not like he’d wanna hear about my super awesome and totally werewolf-relevant theory.”
“Please tell me you didn’t call me in the middle of the night to ask me about zombies. Because if you did, I’m going to - “
“ - rip our throats out, yeah yeah, but here’s the real question. Hypothetically, if we had a zombie virus outbreak - “
“Oh my God. This is not happening.”
“I told you he would be mad.”
“Scott, shut up. If - let’s just assume this for a second - there were zombies, okay. Would you become like, a werewolf zombie, or would you be immune and all werewolves in the world would form this super awesome Slay the Dead and Be Rad alliance where you, ah, what’s the word, rip their throats out with your teeth? Are zombie-wolves a thing? Oh my God. What about alpha zombies - ?!”
“Nah man, I’ve seen Resident Evil, animal-stuff and the undead are not a good mix, believe me. Also, are we talking slow or fast zombies here?”
“Scott, that’s why you’re my man. So Derek, c’mon, feed us some input here.”
“I’m going to feed you your own spine tomorrow morning. After I slept. After both of you went back to bed and only call me when there’s an actual emergency.”
“Zombies are serious business, Derek. You don’t want them with a wolf in their belly, do you? Oh my God, I’m hilarious. That was so good.”
“Stiles, I think he hung up.”
“Damnit! Eh, I’ll ask him tomorrow. Also, why the hell did you act like you didn’t wanna know? You’re all into zombies and shit! I’m not mad, I’m disappointed.”
A woman, or something that had once been a woman. She wore a mask of dull bronze, and the heavy furs of the Northern barbarians. Unnecessary, and uncomfortable, in this weather … unless her skin felt something other than the sun. She wore several rings of bone upon her silk-gloved fingers.
STORYLINE: Infected by a virus, a mild mannered HR manager attempts to fulfill his overwhelming desire for brains, all while trying to keep it together so as not to incur the wrath of his bridezilla-to-be.
week one aka how/why you started watching the show → I’m a little bit obsessed with zombies and I’d never quite found a zombie show that satisified my obsession. Until I found The Walking Dead when I was watching tv with my dad and we both just knew that this was going to be good. We watched the premiere live and we were both hooked. It was everything I wanted and more.
