Zombie Outbreak in Texas!!!

Hail Survivors!

I recently received a very grave -no pun intended- warning from Survivor Miles who I believe may be located in or near Texas. Survivor Miles recently survived a vicious zombie attack, armed with only his wits and hedge clippers. His parents unfortunately were not so lucky.

What's New in Monstrometer 2.2?

What’s new in Monstrometer 2.2? If you say it out loud you will discover that that I am a poet and I didn’t even know it.

The BIG change is that Graham and I fixed the way that the Survival Videos play. They were generally not working the way that you would want them to thanks to a change in the OS and we tried for months to fix it but now we finally figured it out. So if you never have before please take a look at the videos. There are lots of ways to get there including taping on the spot where it says Zombie Month right on the first page.

The logic to determine your Monster diagnosis has also been fine-tuned, increasing the Monstrometer’s overall accuracy by nearly 0.87%. Now I know that may not seem like much but it is a lot when you are dealing with something as accurate as the Monstrometer.

And while we have not added any new results to the database we have added a number of new questions to help diagnose your supernatural state.

For those who didn’t notice it was there before there is a “More” tab that contains all kinds of goodies like a monsters page with quick links to all of the Monstrometer Monster Report pages, the videos and more! (Hence the name)

The update has been uploaded to the App Store for approval and should be available for you to download soon. Probably in less than a week. Graham and I are already working on the next update which should be a little bit bigger. Maybe even including a new result.

Keep on keeping on.


P.S. Screenshots coming soon!

  • Tear Drinker

    In the next update can you add Tear Drinkers?please?pleaseohpleaseohpleaseohplease??!!??!!

    • Hail TD,

      Well I might be able to but I am going to need to do a lot of research. Adding new results to the Monstrometer is tricky business. The Monstrometer has a reputation for very accurate results to uphold and so the level of understanding of a specific supernatural creature required is pretty extensive. So as the only Tear Drinker that I know I will probably have to ask you for a lot of information so that an accurate diagnosis is possible.

      There are also quite a few others on the Monstrometer waiting list including Shapeshifters, Kitsune and Werechimeras (not to mention Chimeras) and Fairies and to top it all off I really also need to figure out a way to add hybrids. Plus I probably missed some. I am going to get to them all but it takes time to get it right.

      For a start maybe you could let me know the answers to a couple questions.

      What would an iconic image of a tear drinker look like?

      How exactly do you go about drinking tears? Do you use a straw? Do you collect them in a cup?

      What else do tear drinkers eat and drink if anything?

      Why do tear drinkers drink tears? Are they epically tasty or do they contain some sort of magic? Are certain types of tears better than others?

      If you can help me compile enough information then maybe I can at least add a page about tear drinkers here on the site, which is much easier to do and is a first step towards getting into the Monstrometer.

      Keep on keeping on


      • Mr. Mutt

        Hail Seth I’m back and not crazy. For detecting hybrids you should use angel for the biometric data as our DNA most closely resembles thiers. Also our wings are always black with a secondary color of red silver white or yellow. We don’t follow the lunar cycles to change. We like motorcycles and large amount of pizza. Also deer blood but vamps drink that to. Hope it’s been helpful.

        Mutt out

        • Mr. Mutt

          Yo Seth in case ya didn’t see^

          • Hail Mr. Mutt,

            Thanks for keeping on and for opening up a whole new can of wereworm here. Graham and I will take this under advisement. As you know we tend to move pretty slow on these. Graham has this crazy thing about school that keeps getting in the way…

            Meanwhile, watch out for vampires on the hunt. Might make them crabby to know you can still eat pizza and they can’t.


            • Mr. Mutt

              Yeah I’ve encountered those. I forgot to mention hybrids are also poisonous to all species were related to. We bite they drop.

              • Hail Mr. Mutt,

                So you mean you have a poisonous bite? For a second there I thought that you might mean like the way Monarch Butterflies are poisonous. Like if you eat one then you get poisoned. So anyways can you clarify for me whic kind of poisonous Hybrids are?


  • Tear Drinker

    We Tear Drinkers only drink tears of sorrow and we for the most part kind of look like goths.we eat normal foods also like pizza,fruits,stuff that humans eat.I’m working on drawing a pretty accurate picture of one and will send it to you as soon as I can.the reason we drink tears is because they call to us promising power and somehow we feel compeled to drink them.we just lick the yeats of of the face of whoever is crying they don’t feel it at all!

    • Hail TD,

      Thanks for keeping on and a belated thank you for clarifying the sociobiology of the tear drinkers. I’m glad to know you don’t have to hurt anyone to obtain the tears. I look forward to posting the picture.


  • ARC

    ARC just saw monstrometer update on AppStore. Getting it now ARC is.

    • Hail ARC,

      Thanks for updating the Monstrometer. It’s a deceptively small update but Graham and I worked hard at fixing the video glitch and adding more content so that it works better and more accurately!

      Keep on keeping on,


  • Mr. Mutt

    Worked for like on second on monstrometer sever.

  • Mr. Mutt

    I may have found a solution.

  • Mr. Mutt

    Yes I think I’ve done it!!!!!

  • Seth!!! I need help I’ve been getting strange phone calls from people I don’t know and ur tetanus on the app says i am a werewolf even though I don’t recall changeling into a wolf I need help and fast!!!!!

  • Dansurvivor

    Every time i use the scanner it crashes! Please fix!

    • Hail Dansurvivor,

      Graham and I are working on a new version of the Monstrometer but it won’t be out for a while yet. Hopefully in the next month or two.

      In the meantime I have a suggestion that might help get it working for you and a question.

      It may help if you delete the app from your device and reinstall. Follow these steps.

      – Tap and hold on the icon until all your apps jiggle and get a little X in the corner.

      – Click on the X to delete the app.

      – Restart your device by holding down the sleep button and the home button until your device turns off and then the Apple logo appears.

      – Then re-downloading the Monstrometer from the app store.

      Sometimes apps get corrupted while downloading and this is the only way to fix them.

      And the question: What device (and what model or generation) and version of iOS do you use? iPhone, iPad, or iPod Touch? iOS 3, 4, 5, or 6?

      Thanks and keep on keeping on.


  • Dansurvivor
