DC Zombies


No, not lame-duck congresscritters. Actual zombies. Well, simulated zombies anyway.

This little game demo is making the twitter rounds at the moment. It’s a little sim that runs in your web browser and shows a theoretical zombie outbreak in DC, just south of Ft Totten park. Here’s a google maps overhead of the region, but it’s way more fun in the sim with the shambling and shooting.

At the moment all you can do is alter some settings like number of armed civilians and which direction the zombies come from but presumably this is on its way to an actual game. It will let you set the percentage of armed civilians down to the pre-2008 level 0% when there were, of course, no guns in the district.

Well I used to say something in my profile about not quite being a “tinker, tailor, soldier, or spy” but Tom stole that for our about us page, so I guess I’ll have to find another way to express that I am a man of many interests.

Hmm, guess I just did.

My tastes run the gamut from sophomoric to Shakespeare and in my “professional” life I’ve sold things, served beer, written software, and carried heavy objects… sometimes at the same place. It’s that range of loves and activities that makes it so easy for me to love DC – we’ve got it all.
