Zombies in the Amazon.

I saw this yesterday on the Wall Street Journal and thought that it was quite interesting.  In case you haven’t seen it:

The zombie apocalypse will void Amazon’s terms of service!

Amazon has just released a new set of tools for game developers in a package called Lumberyard. In its updated terms of service, Amazon said the game makers shouldn’t use the Lumberyard development tools for “life-critical or safety-critical systems” — except in the event of the zombie apocalypse.

The terms of service say the Lumberyard software code isn’t intended for developers to use in code for medical equipment, driverless cars, airplanes, air traffic control or nuclear facilities.

Then, tongue in cheek, Amazon noted that Lumberyard materials shouldn’t be used for manned spacecraft or for military use in connection with live combat.

But if all hell should break loose (literally), Amazon said developers should ignore all those restrictions.

“This restriction will not apply in the event of the occurrence (certified by the United States Centers for Disease Control or successor body) of a widespread viral infection transmitted via bites or contact with bodily fluids that causes human corpses to reanimate and seek to consume living human flesh, blood, brain or nerve tissue and is likely to result in the fall of organized civilization,” Amazon (AMZN, Tech30) said in its terms of service.

Lumberyard, released on Monday, is a free game engine integrated with Amazon’s cloud services and its live video game streaming service, Twitch. Amazon says Lumberyard will allow developers to utilize the company’s vast computer power and storage systems that come from its massive data centers.

Apparently, it’s not uncommon for companies to bury jokes in their typically long and boring terms of service.

It’s prompting me to have some fun with my website polices.  Maybe I’ll embed a coupon code in there somewhere for anyone that gets to the bottom of it…we’ll see!!

Until then, stay safe and don’t forget that the number one rule is “cardio” in the event of a zombie attack.
