About I nfected
Old school survival horror reborn with modern game designs - Supplies and inventory are limited, camera angles are fixed, and moral choices needs to be made.

Randomly generated maps - Every layout, item, objective, camera, and spawn are randomized. Our Random Map Generator will ensure you a new experience each time.

Multiplayer, co-op - Play with up to 3 friends and survive together to complete various objectives. Play it safe by sticking together or save time by splitting up.

Story
A virus has spread all across North America. All you know is that you have been infected and time is running out. After getting in contact with the military, they have appointed you to retrieve samples of the anti virus leftover by rescue teams throughout the area, as a trade for your own extraction. These samples will suppress your infection, but its also a key to your extraction. What lengths will you go to survive?

Scenarios

I nfected includes three unique environments that will incorporate randomly generated maps for the characters to escape. These locales are homages to other survival horror games. Every component of the level and its geometry will be randomized at the beginning of the game to ensure infinite replay value.

Deserted Mansion , Isolated Forest , Abandoned City

Kickstarter created ones
We will work closely with specific backers to help create a post apocalyptic map with assets and environments that will be incorporated into our random map generator.


Characters
Kate - A news reporter that found herself in the middle of the outbreak.
Ability - While in stealth, she can maneuver around in the environments faster than the other survivors.

Aaron - His son is infected and now he is searching for a cure.
Ability - Break free from grabs faster than the other survivors.

Chase- The captain of small militia that was sent to help evacuate civilians, her team was ambushed and infected.
Ability- Reloads her weapons faster than other survivors.

David- A highschool student that knows all too much about an outbreak thanks to video games and movies.
Ability- Runs faster than the other survivors.

Kickstarter created ones
Ability- Design your own ability to be in the game!

Gameplay
- Randomly generated experience, the ability to fluidly maneuver around while engaging in combat, use stealth to avoid confrontation, ability to play in 2 different perspectives (Fixed/ Third person), environmental puzzles, post game unlock system, multiplayer Co-op.

Infection Meter
You are infected at the start of the game and slowly becoming a zombie. You must collect antiviruses for the military to ensure your own extraction, however the antivirus also temporarily heals your own infection. Antibiotics are scattered throughout to help suppress the infection.

After entering stages of the infection players will show various degree of abnormality in the way they move and aim. Upon hitting 100% infection, you will become a zombie, this applies in both multiplayer and singleplayer modes.

Armory
Earn survival points at the end of the game depending on how well you performed. These points are used to unlock items in the armory. The weapons will be unlocked and enabled randomly inside the map for the player to scavenge instead of starting with it immediately to allow players to discover it themselves. However customizable clothing can be selected at the pre game lobby.

Sacrifice and choices
Since there are limited supplies in general set by the difficulty setting players need to choose to use these resources on themselves, npcs, or even their among themselves. This creates an unprecedented level of urgency and choice to either prolong fate at a shot of survival or accept one's death.

Puzzles
Designed to break up the pace of combat and to create a more hectic situation for players to solve. These puzzles can range from environmental hazards, physics based interactions, or searching for the right clues.

Other Survivors
You might encounter some of them along the way in the adventure, complete quests assigned from them for additional rewards. However, weigh your current situation before taking accepting any promises…

Inventory
Players can only have up to 6 items in their inventory including their weapon, and key objectives. Managing their inventory will be in real time, however there are shortcuts to access each slot.

Enemies
Zombies will appear randomly from different sections of the map. Treat each encounter as a puzzle, finding ways to avoid combat when needed or using the environments to your advantage. Various zombie types will have different methods of attraction and movement patterns, so memorize them well to survive.

Combat
Each character has an unique ability in the game. You can move, shoot, hide, or enter stealth to traverse around the environment. You can have up to 6 items in your inventory, which also affects their weight. Players can cycle between the camera angles in the pre-game lobby (Lobby leader selects theses game settings). Players can decide to kill themselves in multiplayer modes to avoid becoming a threat to their friends.

Multiplayer
Play with up to 3 players and survive together to complete various objectives. Play it safe by sticking close or save time by splitting up. Keep in mind time and supplies are limited. Players can manage their inventory amongst each other in real-time, and use shoutouts/ and items to mark their location when separating. When players are heavily injured and unable to walk, they can lend each other a hand by helping them walk or by carrying them. This greatly impacts your weight and may hinder your survival.

Randomly Generated Maps
A mechanic which randomizes everything in the game, to ensure no two experiences will ever be the same. Room locations, map sections, layouts, objectives, environment spawns, event triggers, object, barricades, vehicles/ enemy spawns, road, objectives, weather, set pieces, events, NPC, quests, lighting, puzzles, camera positions, and more are all randomly generated for both single player and multiplayer modes.

Who are we and our goal?
We would like to become an indie studio known to create great titles with a low budget. Our vision is to build on and utilize our random map generator mechanics throughout all the games we develop, and bring something new to the tried and true genres. We hope to expand our capabilities as developers. Our dedication has only been strengthened with your support to keep improving our game with feedback and playtesting!

@ Yurii : Sorry about the delay. The release date has shifted into 2015 as it gives us more time to finish Dollhouse so we can focus on making I-NFECTED as good as it can be. Thanks for your reply!
Yurii Dec 16 @ 8:26am 
Release date: Q4 2014... yeah, I guess another dramatic shift of release date is approaching.

Righteous, Thank you greatly for the reponse and I wish your Dollhouse project well.

@ThatGuyYouHate : We still are don't worry. We are working on releasing Dollhouse before moving on to Infected. It's still coming!

Are they still making this? I do hope so, I'm a big fan of Resident Evil Outbreak 1&2 and this got me excited for a comeback to that style of co-op/singleplayer horror gameplay. RE:O2 freaked me out the most on that level with the psycho gardener and (shivers) killer zombie plants... I hated monster plants ever since I watched the 1956's Invasion of the Body Snatchers as a kid... But anyway! Are they still making this?

Survival horror is a subgenre of video games inspired by horror fiction that focuses on survival of the character and trying to scare the player(s). Although combat can be a part of the gameplay, the player is made to feel less powerful than in typical action games, because of limited ammunition, health, speed, or other limitations. The player is also challenged to find items that unlock the path to new areas, and solve puzzles at certain locations. Games make use of strong horror themes, and the player is often challenged to navigate dark maze-like environments, and react to unexpected attacks from enemies.

So shut the **** up. It's survival horror. Just because it's not your *ussy *hit Amesia and Outlast doesn't make it not survival horror.
