A game on the marketplace says it is a ZPG what does this mean?
ZPG is an unofficial, at best, phrase to explain a game that you don't play. Someone tried to come up with the acronym ZPG but it really isn't taking off even though the concept of a ZPG might be slowly growing.
ZPG is supposed to mean Zero Play Game. It is a game that literally plays itself and needs little to no interaction from you. The idea behind these is simple.. it assumes you want to play games but don't always have a lot of time to spend on them. ZPGs are games you can turn on, read and watch for a while, and let it run in the background. If you do something or die your phone will probably send off a blinky alert to let you know something happened but the game will continue on without you.
A common ZGP, or zero play game, is Godville and that is probably the one you were looking at when you asked about this. Godville gets boring fast
