Popclaire talk to us about why The Virus: Cry For Help offers such a unique twist on the Zombie genre

Posted by 148Apps Staff on October 25th, 2016
+ Universal & Apple Watch App - Designed for iPhone, iPad and Apple Watch

Humanity has succumbed to a virus that’s spread throughout the world. Now the dead have risen with a hunger for human flesh, and all that remain are a few survivors. One of those survivors has just called you for help.

That’s the plot in POPCLAIRE’s latest title The Virus: Cry for Help - and if you might be thinking that this is just another zombie apocalypse splatter fest then you’re (un)dead wrong.

The Virus is a real time adventure where you must communicate with Hanna (a survivor trapped in a city infested with the undead) and attempt to guide her to safety.

Your decisions will constantly shape the course of the game, with even the most trivial of decisions having startling consequences on how the story unfolds. Hanna will frequently send messages for you to respond to at anytime either within the app or via push notifications as well.

One of the developers from POPCLAIRE talked to us about how this title separates itself from other zombie related apps.

What do you think your game offers that you can’t get from any other title on the App Store?

Players will find themselves engaged right from the start with The Virus’ cinematic intro and soundtrack. The atmospheric mood and story is what makes the game really stand out, and Hanna’s pulse and mood monitor will keep suspense high.

There are other apps which boast this mechanic, but none of them with such a high impact on a user’s decision. The additional military channel is also another nice feature that helps to give users more background information.

What challenges did you face during development, and how did you overcome them?

We had to do a lot of work on syncing the soundtrack and graphical atmosphere with Hanna’s mood - but the end result is really cool.

Which part of the game are you personally the most proud of and why?

I like the different moods which give you a perfect idea of Hanna’s current situation.

Who would you say is the general audience of the app?

The Virus: Cry for Help isn’t just for zombie fans or casual gamers. We’ve found our audience to be really varied actually, with men and women both young and old enjoying the game. We’ve even found non-gamers have really enjoyed the experience the title offers.

Do you have anything planned in terms of future updates for the game and, if so, can you give us any details of what these might include?

We don’t want to give too much away right now so all we can say is that Hanna will definitely be back…soon.

Do you have any tips or advice to users on how to play the game?

I would recommend checking the military-channel as soon as “new messages” arrive.

How is The Virus performing so far, and has it been meeting expectations?

The Virus got a worldwide feature on the Apple App Store, and so far the performance has been great. The game is free to play and if you like the story, you can support our work and purchase the full story for €1.99.

You can download The Virus: Cry for Help on iOS and Android for free now.
