About the game

The Year is 2020: A Tale of Survival in a Zombie-Infested World

It was the year 2020, and a new virus known as the New Death had ravaged the world, turning people into violent zombies. The government had collapsed, and a brutal paramilitary group had taken control over most of Latvia. The streets were no longer safe, and the police and army were unable to protect the citizens.

Amidst the chaos, you turned on the radio and heard a military announcement. They were offering one last chance for escape - a ferry heading to Iceland from the western shore. However, only those with enough fuel for the entry fee and the courage to face the zombie-infested Latvia would be granted passage.

Stories from the Outbreak: A Turn-Based Roguelike Zombie RPG

In this desperate world, survival was not guaranteed. That's where Stories from the Outbreak came in - a turn-based roguelike zombie RPG. The combat was heavily strategic, allowing for customization in team composition and character progression. The game also featured dozens of trinkets that provided passive bonuses, following the best roguelike design practices.

But it wasn't just about fighting zombies. Between combats, players had to make decisions about traversing the landscape, and written events forced them to navigate the moral complexities of surviving in a hostile environment.

Planned Features:

  • Form a team of survivors, each with unique abilities and personalities
  • Decide the fates of your team members as you go
  • A wide selection of trinkets and abilities allows for creative approaches to strategy
  • The random element of roguelikes keeps the game fresh through many playthroughs
  • Over 25 enemy types combine into hundreds of different encounters that will push your tactical thinking to its limits
  • Search for supplies and face moral dilemmas in an event system where your choices matter
  • Over 80,000 words of written content explore the lore of the Outbreak and the backstories of the various characters
  • Hidden surprises await even as you keep replaying the game
  • Late-game replayability is reinforced by unlocking new trinkets (permanent progression) and various challenge modes

In this brutal world, not everyone would survive. Not every team would make it. But that was the intended nature of the game - to test the limits of survival in a zombie-infested world.
