The year is 2011, and a terrible infection has spread across the United States.

The infection was airbourne as well as highly contagious. Symptoms were similar to the flu, including high fevers, vomiting, coughing, as well as a general weakening of the immune system. Due to this epidemic, the US began to collapse. Hospitals were overrun with infected patients, plants and livestock began to perish, which led to the economy's failure. All of the military bases were facing difficulties trying to quarantine the disease, even failing to stop the infection from spreading within their own ranks. There seemed to be no answer, and no cure...

But the worst was yet to come.

It was roughly a week before those who were unfortunate enough to become infected began to show enormous amounts of hostility to family, freinds, and strangers alike. This single infection brought down the entire USA from the inside, as its own citizens were murdering each other out of an unexplained rage.

It's been four weeks since the infection began. Those who were neither killed nor infected have held out and survived in shelters in cities, towns, and rural areas using any means necessary.

Now, follow the story of two survivors as they attempt to survive Hell on Earth.

Featured! I can die happy now...

I can't believe it! I'm at a loss for words. This has been my dream since joining RMN.

Infection is featured! And on the day after Halloween, it's so perfect. Thank you so much!

To everyone that has made this game possible I'm so grateful. To everyone who has supported, reviewed or left a comment I thank you all very much. My dream has come true and I'm incredibly happy about this. :D

Happy Halloween!

Hello everyone! I'm starting on chapter 2 with many ideas in mind, one being looking into Michelle's history deeper than we've seen. As well as adding in new enemies and skills, and hopefully at one point have the survival point skill system in use.
It's going to be fun working with tilesets outside of the city one, more of a rural setting chapter 2 is going to be set in, so I hope not to disappoint!

Thank you everyone for your support, I really do appreciate it, it does help make me keep going to know that people care and enjoy the game. That's not to say I have fun developing it, because I do! This is my dream game and it's nice to know that people will help and support my effort.

I can't promise any updates to the download until I get significant progress into the second chapter, but many great things are to come!

Cheers! :)

edit: I've also gotten a new avatar that I am fond of! Haha
Sounds good! Getting out of the urban setting does allow lots of creativity in zombie encounters and themes.
Do you watch a lot of horror movies/read books in order to get inspiration for this project? If so, what is your library?

Will you keep the level cap at 10? I think it should be increased in later releases, because I felt battles became pointless after I reached it.
Maybe the SP system could also let players grow even after they reached their level cap.

I do watch a lot of horror movies. Like The Mist, The Thing, and just about all the original zombie romero films. I watch a lot and draw ideas, even from the bad zombie/horror movies!
Aside from movies I find inspiration from games such as Resident Evil and Left 4 Dead.

And no, I do not intend to keep the level cap at 10. Pretty soon I'll raise it to 20 or so, because I've noticed that people will grind or if they don't find anything to do they will kill stuff.
I planned to keep the first chapter's level low so that I could plan chapter 2 better with the monsters and such.
I definitely think the SP system will offer a lot of options, if you're at the level cap or not. And I'll likely plan the enemies to withstand stronger attacks, because by chapter 2 you should have pumped up your skills.
The reason why we all hit the Lv10 cap is because, well, zombies! We see; we bash their brains in with baseball bats and tyre irons XD

How violent! Haha
Maybe I'll raise it a level or two for the current chapter, but like I said I don't want chapter 2 to be a walk in the park because you went off in chapter 1. :P How will I be able to balance if you guys kill everything!?
The poor zombies...
Got around to playing this.
It was pretty fun. I like all of the graphics, and the overall mood of this game is awesome.
But there are quite a few bugs.
Hope the LT will be useful in a couple of days.

Stopping in to say Happy Halloween everyone!

I was hoping I'd have more chapter2 game play so I could release something for Halloween, but I'd rather have a good polished 30mins before I let it out to the public.
So for now...

Hope you have a good one, and I'll be adding a new image from Chapter 2, so check it out!
Been playing this, got to the subway, and so far so good. Fun game. I always love
dogs

Haha, that's no good! (but by all means play again :D)
And thank you for the kind words, I think every zombie game/movie needs one!

I'm glad you feel that way :) I'm happy to keep this thing running for as long as I can. I've been working on chapter 2, so sooner or later that will be done too!

EDIT: I've updated the download after fixing some crucial game breaking bugs, so sorry to anyone that came across it!
Looks great so far! However I don't know if I'm doing something wrong? I equipped weapons and the jackets, however I don't think it's doing anything :/ Is there a certain choice I have to pick when I'm fighting? Because I understand it's supposed to be hard but for me it seems impossible. I get hit with diseased and slowly die by walking once I waste all my food.
Furthest I've gotten is just to the part where Michelle runs after the dog, and by then I have no health to fight with. I feel like I must be doing something wrong haha.

Hm, you're not exactly doing it wrong, but you aren't using your skills properly. You have to use clean wounds to remove disease, that way you don't die from it.
As for the weapons, they do help but armor only helps so much. Be sure to make use of your skills!
I'm so eagerly awaiting Chapter 2, the game has some of the most delicious atmosphere I've played in an RM game (hell, in most games these days!) :D
I'm looking forward to Chapter 2 as well.

Awesome! That means alot to me, because it's something I really try hard on and I'm glad it pays off. :D

Just so everyone knows, I'm still working on this and I'm doing all I can. I just don't have internet at this time and can't pop on much with updates.
At the current moment I've been play testing the first chapter and working out a lot of bugs and mapping errors, all that fun stuff.

Chapter 2 is well on the way, but of course I have to polish the game to death!
