Zombie Spawning PoolAugust 12, 2007

I came across this thing installed at the Missing Mile (SLurl) after hearing about it from Sarah Nerd. Truth be told, I’ve been kind of warming up to the idea of buying my own Zombie Spawning Pool for awhile, but never had the opportunity to test one out.
The concept is simple: stand on the green circle, and zombies will spawn all around you. Pull out a weapon, any weapon, and shoot ’em. When their health reaches zero, they explode and leave guts everywhere. What could be more wholesome?
I started off using one of the kickass freebie guns they hand out at Missing Mile. By the way, for the record, any sim that hands out free guns is OK in my books!
It’s not a bad gun but in mouselook these zombies kept getting the drop on me. Time to switch to a Samurai Island sword!
What was funny about using the sword was that it was kind of useless, but way more fun. I’m not sure what it is about hacking at rotting flesh instead of shooting it that makes it so satisfying, but it really is soothing. Like taking a nap in a field full of daisies. It helps when you crank the tunes… I think I was listening to some Fear Factory.
Anyhow, expect to get chewed on a few times by egg-headed zombies if your gun doesn’t completely rock, but also expect not to care. This is, inexplicably, a really fun toy. Definitely check it out.
