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.

I downloaded this game about 11 hours ago, and I did not stop playing it... well.. except for lunch. I died, a lot! At first I save scummed the heck out of the game because I thought once you were diseased you were basically finished. I'd restore the game each time I was infected, but then after a few forced battles, I realized that there had to be a way to cure it. It wasn't until later that I found the clean wounds skill just sitting there in the menu... DUH!

I just finished the game an hour ago. It was hard, but very satisfying. I know that I missed items along the way, and for a while I was lost and had no idea where I was supposed to go. Oh and I couldn't stand those infected dogs! Fortunately Lucky was on my side!

All in all.. great game!

Thank you so much, Wax! You made my day :D

I guess I really need to make Clean Wounds clearer. I know it's misleading since it doesn't show in battle. I thought I added a mini tutorial at the beginning, but maybe I'm wrong and never got around to it ;_;

Thank you again though, and I'm happy you finished it and enjoyed it :)

Happy 5000+ downloads! Another milestone reached! :D
Congrats on the feature! The colour palette works really well in this game to create a sense of overall "tone". Nicely done.

One of the better games I've discovered on here. I'm enjoying it!

It's really brutal near the start and I keep dying lol. I realize this project is a few years old, but if you ever get around to updating it at some point, I think a short optional tutorial would be a great addition. And perhaps make some of the infected near the start of the game a bit weaker.

Anyway, I'm really digging the atmosphere! Love the graphic style. Just wanted to drop a message here in your thread and let you know.

Wow! That's quite the compliment! ^.^

An update is very much needed and something I will do soon! I'll keep your thoughts in mind and feel that it's a general consensus of the game. So it really needs to happen. :P

Thank you so much and know that your comment and playing the game is really appreciated and noted for the future update. :)

Edit- Oh, and be sure to make use of Strong Kick to each zombie to give them the Fractured status and other skills that put Damage over Time on enemies.

Don't forget to check garbage cans and dumpsters and to use Clean Wounds to stop disease.

Post here if you're having trouble and I will be there for you. :D
Hey there! Your game looks really good and graphics are just awesome! A lot of people mentioned that it is hard and I join them. But there's a bunch of stuff that really bothers me.
I'm new to this site so sorry if I don't know about some rules, BUT. Your game really reminds me of OFF (especially battle system). Even some sounds are the same. I really hope that you won't copy a lot from that game :(
But from now on, I'll look forward for your updates. Your work is admirable!

Thank you for your interest! :)

And just to clarify I think my game predates OFF. If it doesn't then let me further clarify I've never played the game and Infection has no influence at all from it.
This version of Infection is a update to the original which I started on in late 2008 and released around 2009.

The game is complete and probably won't get an update ever :(

I do appreciate you playing and hang in there on the difficulty! Once you get a grasp on it, it can be pretty easy. <3
OH, then MAYBE Mortis Ghost copied your game XD
I'm sorry if I offended you. But yeah, I've played Infection at my friend's house and it is good as heck, gonna download it for myself now!

No offense taken! :) Thank you very much and I appreciate you playing! ^.^
Hi. I am playing your game right now.
I noticed that characters may be front or in the back in the menu screen.
I am assuming the characters placed in the front are more likely to get hit by enemies.

Also, I noticed one of my characters that was "frnt" is now "back"
I don't know if I did this accidentally or what.
But, how do I move the characters? This may even be a generic rpg maker thing that I just didn't know about until now.

Also. If you want, after I finish the game, I can point out some bugs / things about your game. I took some notes here.
But... only if you are willing to fix / update the game. I can't see much point in doing otherwise.

See ya.

Hello Salvia! Thank you for playing! ^.^

The front and back thing can be done with Skip Turn in combat I believe. As back then I didn't think it made much of a difference.

I would still love to hear notes or bugs if you got them. I can't promise an update any time soon but I always like to fix up a game at some point if it needs it bad enough. :)
I didn't find any game breaking bugs, but there were many bugs.
And the game felt like it was not finished nor polished.
But otherwise, a really good game and very unique.

Spoilers below, please don't read if you haven't finished the game.


+ tiles that you can go on to that you shouldn't be able to
+ monsters couldnt kill me in the arrows minigame
(which is good, cuz the arrows were bugged too as they would go too fast in some sequences
which i think shouldnt be like that, player can not possibly react to that)
- could switch to shotgun after loading 9mm gun clip, so now shotgun has 10 ammo.
- an npc that you never meet in the game called "reiner" is talking when interacting with some trash cans. (he has the same avatar as abraham)
- there is a barrel that gives vitamins forever.
- "expert treatment" cures enemies when it should be curing allies.


So yeah. good work. I like to give commentary for authors.
And, it would be good if you continue working on this game.
But, I am now looking forward to your other game.
: ) bye.

Oh, wow! Those are actually some new bugs I've never seen/heard which is cool (in its own way lol :/)

As for the "not finished" feel, that's because technically it was supposed to be a lot longer, at least double to the released version. You were to go to the country side and survive, continue on. I lost a lot of work during a computer crash and only had a small portion of it saved. So I cut it short and moved on to other games. :(

Anyways! Thank you for those bugs and I'll take a look at them and see what I can do. Cause seriously, those are some new ones which is crazy to see at this stage of the game's life! It's been about 8 years lol

I really appreciate your praise and your help and you're just awesome! Can't wait to see what you have to say about my other games! :)

Seeya later, Salvia <3
