The Zombie Apoclypse is an adventure real game where you can play in first person.
During a few hours, all the town will experiment a simulation of what can happen in case of a zombie invasion. A realistic representation on the way of the actual science-fiction and zombie media series and films (Z War, The Walking Dead, etc…), where the main goal is to survive (for Survivors) or expand the mortal virus (Zombies side).
Departing from an apocalyptic scenario, we have designed a fiction story thought to let you live an unforgettable experience with emotions and sensations as similar as we can to the reality. Participants and actors will immerse into the game making it dynamic and realistic.
Everything is thought to let you feel the lead of your own film and many psychic and physic challenges will be presented to you, with repercussions that will settle your destiny.
You can register as Survivor, as a civilian, and try to survive escaping from zombies. You must follow Authorities´ instructions and do some tests to achieve the goal of being evacuated from the infected zone. If you become infected, you´ll became a zombie and you´ll join the other side, trying to feed yourself with unfortunate survivors.
If you register as Zombie you´ll became part of the zombie hordes and you unique goal will be to chase and infect who remains alive to expand your specie. Inside hordes several missions will be assigned to you and even you may become a Z zombie, having the ability of run and plan ambushes.
There may also remain some places as actor/actress, for who has vocation of soldier, special force member, scientific, betrayer, etc.
If you can´t be there on time for the check-in, please, contact us and we´ll arrange it to have your check-in prepared and ready when you arrive. We can´t assure you we´ll be ready immediately for you when you arrive, but, we´ll do the best to allow you to play as soon as possible.
For whom being on time, we´ve got a pre-game planned to entertain you while the others are checking-in. Who knows: you may event get some extra points! ;)
Yes. We´ve considered that everybody is playing in this game, but with your preferred role, so, the price is the same for both roles.
Somebody commented: "then, for the same price, it´s better to play as survivor and, when they catch me, became a zombie, it´s a double play!". It´s not exactly the same: if you begin as a zombie you´ll have preference for the make up and more time for it, so, it will be probably better and zombies have their own missions too, and, even though, they may recover from the illness. It´s only another role in the game.
Yes. The game is thought fist for adult´s play, then, if we allow adults free when they go along their children, there won´t be any way to control who is going along them or who´s taking the advantage of it to play for free.
All infected participants in the game will be assigned to a zombie horde where they´ll spend time both in the horde and in missions. The most recurrent mission will be to perform as a Zeta during a period of time in a sector, but there will also be other kind of missions. If you start as a zombie, you´ll have the opportunity to participate in the initial show (if zombies appears there in that edition) and begin with a Zeta mission, you´ll also have a make-up session before (usually with more time for it) or you can come already made-up/characterized from home and you may get a partial devolution of your ticket (according to the make-up team criteria) and you´ll have preference on choosing and being assigned to the missions in the horde.
Well... you can, of course, but you´ll loose lots of fun because actors won´t interact with you, and, the game is much more than only wear a zombie costume.
We´re on the street, so, we can´t control what you do there. But Police can... then, don´t complain if they give you a fine for disturbance (we´ve got an authorization, do you?). In addition, we´ll be the first to call them if you look for troubles or bother to the participants.
Being survivors: there´s no problem, you can organize yourself as you want and how many you want. You can go individually or form a mega-group, every option has pros and cons... forming a group, in general, let you plan better strategies, but you´re going to be more visible and zombies will detect you easily (they smell fresh meat!)
Being zombies: you can only form a group when you´re in an horde (with the corresponding horde chief) and hordes are slow (they don´t run). In "Z" missions zombies can run, but they do it individually.
The Z-INFECTION is a public event open to 10 years old and over, although the Organization reserves the right to refuse admission.
The registration implies the knowledge and total agreement of the game rules.
The Organization won’t take any responsibility for any lost or damaged personal effect or clothing during the game.
Every participant will be the unique responsible for their own acts and their consequences, in and out of the game.
The game will begin after your check-in, even though the central activity will take place after the initial show, and will finish with the final scene, but you can leave it earlier if you want.
If you can´t arrive on time, go to the check-in to validate your registration too. If you haven´t got any friend playing to join with, we´ll indicate your the best way to start playing.
Usually the editions are organized with direct collaboration with a local non-profit entity, who promotes the event in that town. Part of the income can be for them, for that reason, we´ll bring you the opportunity to give them a donative and collaborate with their social purpose.
Z-infection puts its infrastructure and experience in favor of that entity, but it´s the entity who brings up the personalization and adaptation of the story to the town, creating a specially adapted and unique edition. This brings us an additional degree of reality because you can find the corner butcher cutting zombie´s throat, or the major can be eaten up at the Main Square, but, please, be tolerant if they make any slip-up: much of them won´t be professional actors.
Kids under the age of 14 will go accompanied for and adult (who is a participant too) all the time in the game. This adult will have to complete the written pertinent declaration, and follow the same luck as the kid (i.e.: if one of them is infected by a zombie, the other one is too).
People under the age of 18 can participate alone, but they have to bring a paternal authorization from his parents or guardians with a copy of their ID.
All the participants have to validate their inscriptions at the registration point after the indicated time (check-in). At this moment we´ll give you the participant pack. People registered as a zombie will have to pass for obligated made-up session (or checking made-up, in case you do it at home).
During the game, participants will bring, all the time, his/her passport and his/her identifying card prominently: green for the survivors, red for the zombies and yellow for the members of the Organization and the actors.
Hiding the identifying card, lose your passport or don´t perform according to your role, can be motive of expulsion from the game. In case of disagreement or conflict with another participant, take note of its participant number and inform let it know to an actor or organization member.
It’s forbidden the use of any transport which is not used by the organization or it isn’t been part of the game. The use of cars, motorcycles, bikes, skates or others will be a motive of punishment and/or expulsion.
It’s also forbidden to take drugs or to drink alcohol during the event. Everyone under their effects will be expulsed immediately.
The minimum aggression between participants and/or actors is forbidden. For this is prohibited to punch, kick, defend, catch, throw any object, etc. If you are trap in a dead end, you are dead or you will have to play as in a “Walking Dead” and play the role of your life as "zombie´s food".
It´s also forbidden to wear any kind of firearm, real or fake, in exception of actors and organization members.
Survivors must be present at the beginning of the game. Since then, your main target will be to follow the received clues to complete the challenges that you raised, trying to avoid to fall under the zombies´ hands. The beginning will be intentionally confusing and chaotic, emulating how it will be in reality. You must investigate, look for actors who can help us, talk with other participants and try to find hints without falling into a cheats or tricks.
Most of the participants will begin the game "alive", and will bring an identifying green card, but during the night you´ll become infected and you´ll change the green card for a red one. In this moment your challenge will be to give a good "die" show… Only a few ones will survive and be evacuated. The ones with the greatest number of completed challenges will receive an especial souvenir to remember their achievement.
Be careful! Due to safety reasons, Zombies will catch and infect you with a simple contact, so don’t outbreak if you are trap, on the contrary: put yourself in the role and perform... it´s eating up! In the hordes all zombies can infect, but being in a mission they can only do it up to its time limit and inside the assigned sector. They may go out of the sector punctually during a persecution (it will count the start point of that persecution). If you became infected, give them your green identifying card and go to the Epidemic Control Center. During the first hour, the virus isn´t quite aggressive, so they probably will be able to provide you a vaccine. From that point, they will submit you to one of your infection tests of you passport (don´t use by yourself), to know the scope of the infection, and it will determinate if it worth to vaccinate you or there´s no turning back. If you finally reborn as a zombie, with your new made-up, you can join to a zombie horde and roam in the village and infect the latest unfortunate survivors.
Zombies bring the virus and they wear a red identifying card. Unlike the movies, Zombies, usually retain some of their intellect and motor faculties. You will find them moving in groups (hordes) but also wandering around individually, and in this case, they tend to run, a lot! These are known as "Zeta" zombies. It don´t seem they´re attracted by noise (but if you´re noisy they´ll know you´re there) but some attraction to intense lights has been observed.
Be a zombie is fun too: going in group, you are slowly, but your number will increase during the night, and survivors will be tired for moments. So this will be favorable for you. Play your role, loitering the streets, and scare people, crawl, groan... you´ll be the center of media attention! Your first objective is to locate and join the zombie horde of the assigned sector, where your virus will be activated and you´ll begin to infect. But until then, you can only scare (do it! perform your role and have fun)
The hordes are powerhouses of the Zombies. A kind of common mind makes them concoct plans and ambushes. Horde continually out new Zeta as well as small groups with specific missions. As with the challenges of survivors, at the end of the game, Zombies with the highest number of completed missions, will receive a special souvenir to remember their trail of death. When you finish each mission you must join to your horde again to validate its result and wait until your next objective will be assigned.
The zombie virus isn´t contagious at all time. You can only infect being part of an horde, without being isolated from it, or having a mission assigned (i.e.: the Zeta ones) and up to the time and sector that your horde chief decide (it will give you a sticker with your time limit). You can´t stand guard over or lay siege to participants nearby a challenge/control or secure zone. You can´t infect multiple people at a time: finish with one and continue with your mission. Zombies can´t be hidden, at the most they stand behind a corner, they don´t bend down behind a car, and they don´t react instantly and lightning fast. They´re not stealthy, they don´t walk calmly, they don´t walk the dog or use the cell phone nor use whatsapp, they don´t seat to have dinner, etc. Military can shot you and stop your progress. Any zombie who don´t act as a zombie can be disqualified.
The game develops in a real environment, which means there´ll be alien people who aren’t playing, but you can interact to some extent with them: in example, you can ask them for indications to find a street, but you can’t tell them that there are soldiers shooting in the streets, especially if they ignore that you play in a game. If it’s necessary, please explain that everything is a fiction.
Police it still being real and they have total authority. Remember in the game all the actors/actress will wear their yellow identifying card (except during the initial show).
There will be members of the organization in plainclothes to supervise the correct development of the game. If they see any improper conduct, they can expulse you. They´re the only one who can cover their identifying card.
The game area is restricted into a marked area in the maps that you will have in your disposition and/or by informative signs. But you have to bear in mind that you share the game area with other alien people and a real world, including vehicles traveling as usual, so pay attention and respect the traffic rules for the pedestrians. All laws and norms remain in force during the game.
The game will be developed in public streets and areas, with the exception of some area habilitated and controlled by the organization or the actors/actress. The rest of the lands, locals or houses will be excluded of the game, so you CAN´T go into them.
Along the game zone some secure zones may be prepared. In these zones, indicated on the map, participants must show a relaxed attitude and zombies can´t infect there. Police stations, hospitals, ambulances and other sensible places (and nearby) are zones, by default, excluded of the game, and you mustn´t enter there except, obviously, in case of real necessity or justified emergency.
During the game several clues will present challenges and tests that Survivors should do. Some of them may be necessary for the final evacuation. If you can’t go through one of them, don’t worry, look for evidences and clues to the next one. Don’t obsess you. The important thing here it’s to have fun! Zombies will be also able to complete their own missions to collaborate to the expansion of their specie.
They can be new random elements, positive or negative, in any moment, to give more dynamism to the game. Don’t believe all the things you hear, because they may be false, because even the actors can lie. You will better to suspect if the situation don’t look good. And be careful with the others survivors, they may help you if you don´t know how to continue, but don´t trust a lot, they may use you as distraction for a zombie horde while they escape along the other side… maybe you even can´t trust your shadow!
In order to take place in the game, Z-infection can cede material to the players. These become liable with its custody, conservation and return at the end of the game, being directly responsible about its deterioration and damage further than the normal and adequate game use, as well as about its loos or theft.
If the player doesn´t return the material, Z-infection reserves its right to report missappropriation and/or to invoice him/her all the restitution costs, and in case of proven non-payment, communicate it to files of patrimonial solvency and credit, according to that provided by the actual law of personal data protection.
Any participant must have completely clear what´s real and what´s fiction, and it must be very conscientious of its own acts because while it´s playing a game, it´s completely responsible of its acts.
In case any participant needs to address to others to communicate anything real without any doubt, it must do it insisting on the word REAL and putting one arm up. Any message transmitted showing one arm up must be unequivocally understood as real and out of any fiction of the game. Police is always real and you must obey any order they may emit.
In case you find colored signals (specially luminescent ones) delimiting a zone or marking an intersection, track, door or path, it must be interpreted as PROHIBITION if they´re red, INDICATION if they´re green. On the same way you mustn´t cross any zone delimited with red and white tape. In contrast, a yellow and black one will be part of the game. In case of doubt, don´t put yourself, any other participant or other people in risk.
