What’s the game about?
Map of the Dead started out as a MapBox-hacked-and-layered zombie survival map one of our developers made on a lark last year. It went completely viral.
Like in the Map itself, users are set in a post-apocalyptic augmented reality of real life locations—everywhere you take your phone. This means users can scavenge for weapons, food, supplies and medical aids from real life and local dental offices, pharmacies, supermarkets, hardware stores, pawnshops, police stations, you name it—All while coming across random zombie threats debilitating your ammunition (baseball bat, shovel, gun, etc.) and health (factoring in particular weapons, fighting experience and the location type).
