Description
Release date: End of 2014
Think zombie version of Fallout made in the style of the Pokemon gameboy games and completely free. Play as Bert the travelling salesman. Survive long enough to find the ingredients to cure the apocalypse but what happens to you along the way is based on your choices. Every choice you make will cause ripples throughout the game. Each playthrough is guaranteed to be different. A new take on the overused zombies genre. If you're sick of zombies then this game obviously isn't for you.

- Massive replayability.
- An open world to explore and discover.
- Limb aiming combat. That pesky zombie getting in too many good shots? Cripple his arm so he can't use that move anymore. Or take out his head for a quick kill, if you can hit it.
- Choose what music you will listen to. Wandering the remains of humanity can get tedious, good thing you have your Mp3 player (with headphones of course so as not to make noise). Choose your own background music.
- Houses will have an 80% chance of being locked, attempt to pick the lock to loot the house or break a window and suffer the consequenses of the noise created.
- Most choices will not cause outcomes, they will add weight to an outcome. So even if you chose every choice exactly the same your playthrough will never be the same. Stack the odds in your favour.
- Trust. Gain and lose trust by doing things for people. Sometimes trust can help stack the deck in your favour.
- Randomized loot and sub-quests.
- A constantly lowering Hunger, Thirst and Sleep.
- Successful random wildlife encounters in the wilderness will leave you with raw meat that can be cooked or burnt.
- Raw meat will either give you some toxins or poison you.
- Refillable water. Drink from a bottle and you can refill it at a water source, but not all water sources are clean.
- Secure sleeping. Find somewhere safe to sleep or make a place safe to sleep, otherwise you may get robbed or killed in your sleep.
- Crippled limbs. In a tough battle or maybe fall through a floor in a ruined building and you could break a limb. Break a leg and you'll lose the ability to run or fast travel. Break an arm and you can't use a weapon. With a broken limb you will have to use bandages to temporarily patch yourself up, however that won't last long. You will need to find or pay a medical professional to fix your broken appendage.
- 5 Huge towns to explore with hundreds of possibly abandoned buildings. Large wilderness between towns, follow the highway or go bush bashing to see what you stumble across.
- Sewer systems in each town, a faster way to travel around a town and zombie free, however you will gain toxins for the length of your time in the sewer.
- Fast travel, the ability to travel to any town you've already been to without having to manually walk it.
- Real death. Contrary to popular belief, death is not only the beginning, it's the end. Should Bert die it's game over even if he has conpanions to carry on. Should a conpanion die and they're gone for good.
- Companion abilities, you can only have one companion with you at a time but each companion have their own side quests and abillities to help you along your travels. So be careful not to get them killed.

A wide variety of colourful characters.
- Choose a side between the haters and the purists. Haters only care about themselves and want everything else ruined. Purists want the world to stay the same. What side are you? Will you help the haters destroy/overrun/kill each town? Or will you thawt their plans and save each town with the purists?
- An angry security company trying to control this zombie wasteland and build their brutal utopia.
- The two sides of a towns at war, pick a side, unite them or destroy them.
- Relocate a whole town on the brink of collapse. Find them weapons, muscle, camouflage. Then create a big enough distraction so they can get on the move. Just don't get trapped by the horde your distraction creates.
- A cult that believe that zombification is the next level of life. Life everlasting. Each member must forcibly convert 5 before they can drink the punch of new life. Will you join them? Stop them? Leave them to their work?
