Running away from zombies or screaming at their faces a husky version of “NO!” seems to have worked (and a few survival tricks) as I finished with 2 lives left.
Since the first time I heard of Outbreak Manila 2 or 3 years ago I was already determined to experience it for myself. Either I don’t have time or I don’t have money. But my, my I finally got to have both time and money!
Sumakit baga ko sa pagpapatentero sa zombies right off the first part of the track. My quick thinking was put to the test (char) where to run, who’s the best human shield, go ahead or with a crowd etc. Nadaganan ako, nakadagan, natulak habang tumatakbo, nakatulak ng kung sino, sigaw ng sigaw ng “Lawrence!!!”, nabungo partially sa puno at barricades, nawalan ng relo at kung anu-ano pa.
I was scared for my life (or rather life flags) and I found myself trying to be all video-gamey with my strategies and running abilities.
It really was an experience along with the decision making you had to do in the end and throughout the game to survive. It gave me a glimpse of what it was like being in a world full of moaning, running zombies.
Ang cool lang kasi I also got to play the game with a bunch of strangers - like a real apocalypse scenario.
I’d definitely take the challenge to stay alive again next year!
