Call for Beta Testers

It’s been nearly a year since the release of the original Zombie Outbreak Simulator in late November last year, and about 7 months since we released Class 3 Outbreak (C3O) in April this year.

The original version of C3O included two maps, in Washington DC and Leicester England, covering a total area of around 1.25 square kilometres. We figured that the other 150 million square kilometres of land on Earth deserved to experience a zombie apocalypse too!

So since the last release we’ve started work on a new version of C3O. This version includes an editor, which lets you choose anywhere in the world (where the Google Maps® image quality is good enough), draw in the locations of walls, buildings, trees etc, and then send in the zombies. So you can watch as zombies take over your house, work, school, wherever!

Here is what the editor currently looks like:

Class 3 Outbreak Editor

Once you’ve edited a map, you can click Publish and your map becomes available as a marker on the home page, for anyone to play:

Class 3 Outbreak Home Page

Click a marker, and you’ve got instant zombie mayhem:

Zombie Outbreak Simulator on new Class 3 Outbreak map

After several months of development we’re now at the stage where we are ready to start closed beta testing. So we’re putting out a call for beta testers!

The current version is a very early release – there’s still plenty more for us to do during the beta testing phase, before we’re ready for a public release. Also, this version can currently only play the Zombie Outbreak Simulator on custom maps. We will be adding the ability to play games like C3O, and lots more game features, soon.

If you would like to be part of the beta, send us your email address via our contact page, and we’ll send you details on how to log in. You can also keep an eye on our forums, for updates on our progress.

Jay and I are looking forward to seeing what kinds of maps you build!

Saxon

    Hey guys. I have to say your game is great! It’s truely pic and I’m up every night playing it. I would just like to say I think you should put in more playable features in the new games you make (if you do). the 2 things in mind are Barracades, and resources. I don’t think you will read this but if you do I hope my comment helped. you guys are great

  22. austin says:

    i love this game and would lov to beta test

  23. Colby says:

    will you be able to obtain high resolusion imagery in other places? I cant use my house in a map…. :(

    • Jay says:

      Bummer your house isn’t available! Its up to Google, even if you could ask them to photograph your neighborhood I imagine the cost would be more than a few dollars!

      I’d suggest if you can’t get your house, try other houses you’ve lived in, friends houses, your work, school, places you’ve traveled, etc.

  24. dylan says:

    I’ll do it. I’m a huge fan of your games and give good feedback but is it too late too join?

  25. angelo says:

    not to rush a awsome developer how long till c3o has it cause its awsome.

  26. Hawshire says:

    Pick me! I sent an email request, I want to test the beta as well!

  27. Nate says:

    The editor looks really fun to work with. is it, besides the fact that you have to do every house, tree, and car in a certain area?

    • Jay says:

      Well, its easy to use and it can be fun to do maps of areas you know well. It can also take a while, so there’s a bit of work and repetition involved. Some people have said they really enjoy it though, it’s probably a bit of personal preference :)

  28. pvt900 says:

    Good Good Add Military For Certain Maps Areas cause i got 2-3 that if only the Radiation or military wouldnt black out

    They are, Area 51,Chernobyl, And Moscow Cause
    Russias got enough radiation to black out the satelitle so no maps in Russia and Area 51 has a black out since its a Military Compound IN use

  29. Colby says:

    Jay, I live in Tasmania. (On the Northen Coast! So I probably won’t get any high def pictures.) Thanks anyway! :)

  30. connor says:

    hello how do we get in to test this ?

  31. Deano says:

    i would love to have a crack at being a beta tester for this, mostly to see what it would look like to see the place i live in overun with zombz, but also cuz it would be cool to be able to be part of the team testing this badboy of a game out, as i can see this one on the up n up! its greatly addictive, and has got alot of potential to just keep getting better, it could be like command and conquer but with zombies!!

  32. rex says:

    NICE! i discovered your game the other day, and i loved it!
    i was thinking it would be great if all the cities in the world could have this! and i knew it would be a massive task for one company to do so. but you thought up a solution, anyone can, and that’s great! I’m definitely gonna do my hometown and make sure all my mates play it!

  33. Rich says:

    Definitely will beta test great game if you want me to!
    Also are you going to implement Army reserves; National Guard, Territorial Army?

  34. Sloth says:

    This, sounds awesome.

  35. wess says:

  63. pvt900 says:
