What is Project Zombie?
Project Zombie is a PHP web app for management of a multi team, wide-ranging QR code scanning game. Participants only need a phone with an app capable of scanning a QR code and opening up its link in a browser. Scanning a code brings them to a page where they enter their team username and password. The app then checks whether they have scanned the code before, and if not, adds a number of points to their team score. Teams can check their scores through the main page of the app with their team username and password.

How do I get it?
Project Zombie is open source, and available at this repository on Bitbucket. It requires a mySQL database, PHP 5+ and not much else. MediaHug provides a service to remotely set it up properly on your servers, but if you are comfortable doing it yourself you are welcome to it. It is currently under continued development, so an installer will be added later.
