Outbreak is a live-action zombie-tag game where players utilize Nerf blasters as they fight to survive the zombie apocalypse.
Zombies, who represent "it," must tag Survivors to infect them into a fellow Zombie. The Survivors can fight back however, by shooting a Zombie with a Nerf-style foam-dart blaster to stun the Zombie for a period of time. The catch: The game takes place over the course of five days, during which you are always playing. Walking from your car to your classes, waiting at the bus stop; each of these every-day activities becomes very different when the threat of a Zombie attack is always looming.
As the game producer, I spent much of my time on this project making sure all teams were on task, taking safety precautions, making sure marketing events were successful, and organizing the event behind the scenes to ensure a smooth game for all participants. During Season 4 of Outbreak, we had a massive number of participants-- more than we had had previously. The final number of participants was about 215 people.
