July 12th, 8 pm (PDT): Scientist are baffled. There seems to be no effective treatment. Several cities are in a state of emergency. The government advises all people to stay at home. 

July 13th, 4 pm (PDT): Hospitals are reporting that dead bodies suddenly revive.

Virus expert Dr Foster: "Every dead body that is not exterminated becomes one of them. It gets up and kills! The people it kills get up and kill!"

The church declares: "Hell is overflowing. And Satan is sending his dead to us."

July 13th, 10 pm (PDT): There is no government anymore. People flee from the cities. Hordes of the undead are walking all over the world. Is this the end?

About Dead Age

Survive the zombie apocalypse with turn-based combat and permanent death! Manage survivors, go on dangerous scavenging runs, build alliances, craft equipment, make difficult story-influencing decisions, defend your camp against undead hordes and experience non-linear rogue-lite elements. In addition, each new playthrough in this Indie Survival-RPG offers different random missions and survivors to meet.

Just after the zombie outbreak you were fortunate enough to join a group of survivors and hole up in their camp. But that doesn't set you out of danger! Food supplies are running low, injured survivors must be tended  to and materials need to be scavenged to keep the camp intact. The zombie threat increases steadily and gangs of hostile survivors keep you on the defensive.

Another feature of Dead Age is its non-linear story with real in-game consequences. Decisions you make in conflict situations affect the story's future. You can choose to be a hero and save more survivors, or let them die to stock up on supplies. You can build romance relationships with other survivors or start rivalries that may have disastrous chain reactions.  Daily events offer new dangers and situations in which you must make choices that affect the survival chances of your camp. Live long enough, and have a chance to unlock one of the game's six possible endings.
