Amazon t&cs include zombie attacks

amazon-logo Amazon announced their new game engine yesterday, called Lumberyard, and in the terms and conditions, they included exemptions that allow it to be used when zombies attack. Yes. You read that right. Zombies, in a multinational company's t&cs.

What's this Lumberyard all about? Well, if you don't know what it is, basically, it is a free tool for developers so they can make their own games, provided they promise to buy cloud services for the games from Amazon. So far, so thrilling.

Like most things, there's a bunch of restrictions in place from Amazon, but not anything stopping you during a zombie onslaught.

Have a look at the last couple of lines in this (click on the image to enlarge).


As you can see, rules will be lifted in the event "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".

Pretty dark, Amazon. Do they know something the rest of us don't? It wouldn't surprise us if Amazon are reanimated the dead to work in their warehouses for cheaper labour, to be perfectly honest.

    Am I the only person who buys something and then find out it's coming from China? I'm sick of Amazon not making clear when you're buying from a non-UK country.

    A non-UK country? That would be the rest of the world then?

    Albi, Does it matter where it's coming from? you do get to see the seller's name and delivery times before you pay.

What do you think?
