Very Cool: Class 3 Outbreak Flash Zombie RTS!
Built on their first release, the Zombie Outbreak Simulator, Binary Space has release their first game, the Zombie RTS Class 3 Outbreak. The game is a browser based flash game, running over Google maps, where you control 3 squads of police to try to hold back a zombie invasion. Like many flash games the graphics and gameplay are deceptively simple, but the game is highly addictive, and under the hood Class 3 is surpising sophisticated:
Game designer, Jay Weston says, “We set the bar pretty high with our previous release, Zombie Outbreak Simulator. We hope that gamers enjoy controlling the local police and pew pew’ing some zombies in this first version of Class 3 Outbreak! P.S. BbraAiInZZzzzZ!!” Programmer, Saxon Druce has coded each of the 1,000s of map inhabitants to behave individually and interact with terrain on Google Maps, meaning that characters move under trees, around walls and into buildings, all while running at 30+ frames per second on average PCs. “We can’t wait to get started on the next version of C3O, we have some very exciting plans. Shooting zombies with pistols alone is never enough, every zombie fan realizes this.”
Binary Space is a small indie developer from Australia, formed in 2009 by Jay Weston and Saxon Druce, who both originally worked together at Ratbag Games on titles such as Powerslide and Dirt Track Racing. I can’t wait to see what they have planned for the next version, and I would love to see an Android mobile version ! Class 3 Outbreak would also be great to play on an iPad..it’s a pity that Apple has said that the iPad will never support flash…
