The zombie apocalypse. It’s been done many times before, but never quite like this. For the first time ever, you’ll be able to select a unique appearance to reflect your parallel existence, a class to wield deadly abilities against the zombie menace, and rescue your city from certain destruction. That’s because Parallel Zombies uses your GPS location to bring the apocalypse to your own backyard. Parallel Zombies offers a stylized, unique visual experience, a thrilling main quest with rich backstory, and a world as big as the one you live in. And you need not face the horror alone, friends can play alongside you or join your party as you roam the wasteland.
Only a few months ago, the entire world fell to its knees in the face of the most infectious plague the world has ever seen. At first it appeared as though people were simply getting sick, but the infection was more sinister than that. The dead began to rise from their graves, and very few survived the initial wave. Thankfully, you are one of the few who did. Now it’s up to you and your friends to save the people too sick or scared to help themselves. Only with your help can your neighborhood survive!
Creating a Parallel Personality
The first chance you’ll get to customize your character is at creation. You can select from various facial features, hair styles, and classes. Doing so will both literally and figuratively create a new portrait of your character in this parallel world.
- Step 1: Choose your gender. This choice is purely cosmetic, both males and females are equally capable of battling the zombie hordes.
- Step 2: Customize your character’s appearance. Here you’ll see the portrait representation of your avatar, alongside the avatar itself. There are many combinations of hair, skin, eyes, and more, so play around and see what looks good.
- Step 3: Select your class. Class information can be found on this screen, including the names of their specialization trees and a brief overview of their role in the game. You can also find more information about each class in Section 2 of the ‘Getting Started’ guide. You’ll also be able to name your character however you please.
- Step 4: Your email address and a password of your choosing. Don’t worry, we’ll never use the email address to spam you or sell it to any third-party. Email notifications can be easily turned off in the Settings menu.
It’s that simple. After completing these steps, you’ll be well on your way to slaying zombies and saving your very own neighborhood. The tutorial will help walk you through the controls and combat basics!
You can pick from three unique classes, each of which has branching specializations that will allow you to further customize your character.
Soldiers are masters of combat, specializing in tanking, sneaking, and striking their enemies where they’re most vulnerable. They make no apologies for taking the zed menace head on, but aren’t above sticking to the shadows and striking where the zombies are weakest, either. Whether you want to be a zombie-slaying machine or a shadowy assassin, Soldier is your class.
Masters of more primal methods, Hunters befriend the natural world in order to glean them an edge on unnatural. With their numerous pets, Hunters can summon armies of wild creatures to tackle, peck, or scratch his foes for him. Or perhaps, you’d prefer to lay traps and wait for your enemy to stagger into them? Hunters do that, too. Whether you want to be a gun-slinging trap maker, or a master of the wilderness, the Hunter is the class for you.
Formerly upstanding members of the outside world, the apocalypse has driven everyone to reassess their talents, including the Doctors. The Doctor utilizes his mastery over biology to concoct potions that strengthen the body and sharpen the mind, allowing him to transform him (or his allies) from Jekylls to Hydes in mere moments. Of course his more traditional talents are useful as well. His healing, and his ability to summon bloodthirsty, rampaging mutants both come in handy on the field.
In the zombie apocalypse, survival is an everyday chore. However, even in the darkest of days, you can find solace in friendship. Save someone from some trouble. Talk to them. They may repay the favor and help you on your journey. You can travel with your friends, so they’re a great way to stay connected and have a wide range of influence.
In the Groups tab of Parallel Zombies, you can be matched with allies to complete quests with you. It’s a great way to meet people, and adventuring together can be both fun and incredibly rewarding. Alternatively, you can invite friends to join you on your adventure, and they’ll be able to help you save the world!
