"2clams has redefined location-based gaming with its addition of real-time action between players."
Rex Ishibashi, CEO, Callaway Digital Arts

San Francisco, CA (PRWEB) December 21, 2011

2clams, an innovator in the mobile gaming space, unleashes conTAGion – You’re IT!, the next evolution of location-based action games. Set during the inevitable zombie apocalypse, this massively multiplayer online role playing game (MMORPG) is inspired by the classic game of “Tag,” transforming your actual neighborhood—indeed the entire world—into the ultimate playground. Using location-based technology, conTAGion offers a visceral and tactile experience through meaningful interactions with real human players in actual, real-world environments. conTAGion is now available and can be downloaded for free in the Apple iTunes App Stores worldwide.

Setting out to create a classic zombie movie experience brought to life, conTAGion utilizes intuitive gameplay designed to make it easy for players to imagine themselves in a world filled with danger. An introductory narrative and tutorial, highlighted by stunning painted artwork, eases first-time players into the world of conTAGion, establishing who they are and what hazards await.

To achieve this immersive vision, conTAGion challenges the limits of today’s smartphone technology and the expectations of the audience, pushing the envelope in mobile, location-based gaming. Dynamic tracking maps a player’s location on a frequent basis, meaning every movement a player makes has actual consequences within the game. conTAGion takes augmented reality gaming beyond the confines of the mobile phone screen and encourages users to actively run through, navigate and participate in the world at large, redefining the concept of “open world” play.

To download the game, please visit us at http://itunes.apple.com/us/app/contagion-youre-it!/id462844047?ls=1&mt=8
