Survive the Outbreak is a terrific, interactive, survival horror full-motion video game that drops you into the middle of the zombie apocalypse and leaves you to find your way to safety. It sets up a variety of challenging scenarios where you have to choose between following your conscience or your instincts for self-preservation, and you never know which path will end in survival and which will end with you becoming zombie chow. It's professional quality and extremely involving - which is particularly impressive, given that this thing was apparently the work of a bunch of pals who were just goofing around. They had to take the game off their website because they couldn't afford to pay for the bandwidth, but a "lower quality, less fun" version is now on Youtube. (The only difference I've noticed so far is that the sound mix seems a little off, so the dramatic music is a little too loud now.) The intro is below, and from there you can click around to follow the various paths.
Note that there is plenty of gore here, and some of the language is not safe for work. But, hey, if zombies were trying to eat your brains, you'd sure be dropping f-bombs all over the place!
