[=Zooooommxbies=] is a German [[PlayByPostGames Play By Post Game]] about a group of people trying to survive a [[ZombieApocalypse zombie apocalypse]] in Sydney. The players create characters with different stats for overcoming the challenges the game master provides. The story is divided in different chapters, each featuring unique challenges which require a certain amount of characters to participate. A character´s stats and the game master´s dices decide if he/she is sucessful and can continue the game or fails and has to face the consequences. Which are usually deadly for the character. Fortunately, there are also characters with certain special abilities, that can be used to influence the outcome.

The game started in August 2012 and ended in September of the same year. A second season started in August 2013.

A new, third season has started in september 2015, loosely following the events of the 1st and 2nd season, playing 21 years later. The season ended three months later. It was the most successful season and is the source for most of the tropes listed here.

With a combined wordcount of around 1.507.100 words, [=Zooooommxbies=] is an awesome piece of literature. Season 3 alone has more words than the Holy Bible.
