Help This Infectious New Game Go Viral – Patient Zero

It’s 2012 and together, we can help start the mass outbreak of the zombie apocalypse, as well as a slew of other bizarre infections. It doesn’t matter how much you wash your hands, these infections have evolved to transmit themselves over our wireless network infrastructure.

This is the premise of Patient Zero, a new game by a fresh developer, EgonDev. In this pandemic game, infections get transferred by players coming within proximity of each other in the real world. Players infected with your virus will carry it and infect more players. The ultimate goal is to be Patient Zero for the most devastatingly sweeping virus in the world. Here’s a few screenshot to help give you an idea of how it works.

The game is currently in  open beta, and needs more players to get the sickness spreading.

The concept behind this game has some real potential. For those of you familiar with them, you can almost liken it to a modernized/easier/themed game of either  “Where’s George” or perhaps even the street pass feature of the Nintendo 3DS.

Mwhahaha, looks like I’ve successfully caused people near me to contract Luposlipaphobia.

If you’re ready to get down with the sickness, check it out in the Play Store.

    fun little game, but be aware the constant GPS usage drains the battery.  I had my Samsung Galaxy S2 plugged into my PC constantly charging, and within 3 hours of the app running my phones battery dropped below 30%

      Yeah it would be better if it were network determined location rather than the real GPS

        We no longer use GPS. The latest update uses network location.
