Imagine the zombie apocalypse has hit today and all you’re left with is a butter knife, 100 pieces of ammo, and MapBox maps. Your favorite local haunts have become havens for the belligerent undead, who stand between you and the necessary tools for survival.
This is the world of Map of the Dead, a new iPhone game launched today by the creative design firm Doejo. We spoke to Jeff Merrick from Doejo, who stated that aside from design control, there was another very real factor that made Doejo choose MapBox:
“We switched to MapBox as we found it was the only reliable post-apocalyptic map available”
Map of the Dead leverages the MapBox iOS SDK (which recently reached 1.0.0) and our OpenStreetMap-based maps in a way that nicely showcases the level of design control that MapBox offers. Take a look at these screenshots.
