Zombie Choose Your Own Adventure

Posted by ebowen On April - 2 - 2009

What would you do during a zombie apocalypse? Well now you get a chance to see just what you’d do when faced with some tough decisions. In The Outbreak you find yourself in a group of 5 survivors trying to escape the oncoming zombie horde with little more than a double barrel shotgun and a spastic colon…ok I made that last one up.  You are allowed to choose the way in which you will die, or survive depending on the wisdom of your decisions.  It’s also some good training for the day when the zombies actually do descend like locusts…and I know they will. If you make all the right choices you’ll live to fight another day…otherwise you’re zombie poo.  It’s a really cool interactive movie that lasts approximately 15 minutes (mostly due to all the dying and retrying) with a neat decision tree.  While it’s not the best movie ever it is a very interesting approach to movie making.  I highly recommend you give it a whirl.  Click on the link above or the picture below to try it out an ddon’t forget to check their site out on –

A Little Inspiration

A Little Inspiration

People are often unreasonable, illogical, and self-centered;
Forgive them anyway.
If you are kind, people may accuse you of selfish, ulterior motives;
Be kind anyway.
If you are successful, you will win some false friends and some true enemies;
Succeed anyway.
If you are honest and frank, people may cheat you;
Be honest and frank anyway.
What you spend years building, someone could destroy overnight;
Build anyway.
If you find serenity and happiness, they may be jealous;
Be happy anyway.
The good you do today, people will often forget tomorrow;
Do good anyway.
Give the world the best you have, and it may never be enough;
Give the world the best you’ve got anyway.
You see, in the final analysis, It is between you and God;
It never was between you and them anyway.
