13th Age uses a system that cares about how close people are to each-other, rather than where they are in absolute space. When I played in a (short lived) game a few years back, the GM was able to represent the battlefield pretty easily with a bunch of bottle-caps.

For anyone who is unfamiliar with Forbidden Siren, it's a (short) series of Japanese horror games.
The most appropriate system I can think of would be some kind of zombie survival game with troupe gameplay - but I'm unfamiliar enough with that kind of game that I want to pick the brains of the...
