An epidemic has swept the globe, and now the world belongs to the undead. Sound familiar? It might be a horror trope that’s getting a little long in the rotting tooth, but when a formula works you don’t mess around with it. But you can improve it – and that’s exactly what POPCLAIRE have attempted to do with its latest release, The Virus: Cry for Help.
Trapped somewhere in a city that now belongs to the dead, a helpless survivor called Hanna is desperately trying to stay alive. And that’s when you receive her call for help.
The Virus: Cry for Help is a real time horror thriller where Hanna will frequently send messages – and the really novel twist is that these messages can occur anytime within the app or via push notifications.
We spoke with one of the developers from POPCLAIRE about how they’ve put their own spin on the zombie survival genre.
