[edit] Background

This is the story of Frank West, a freelance journalist who stumbles into the zombie-infested town of Willamette while searching for his big break. Frank locks himself up inside the local supermarket, only to find it is not the safe haven he thought it would be; Instead, endless streams of the living dead await Frank inside and the struggle for his life begins.

[edit] Gameplay

Simple controls and easy learning curve that have players using melee weapons, grappling attacks, and jumping combinations to keep the zombies at bay.

[edit] Features

  • Real-time gameplay: Time marches on whether Frank is actively engaged or simply stationary.
  • Dynamic enemies: Record numbers of zombies come in never-ending waves and react to their environment. Though they move slowly during the day, the zombies become stronger and faster at night, making it even more dangerous for players to survive. These former humans have also retained some memory of their previous lives, giving them unique behaviors and appearances.
  • Visual clarity: Playing in native 720p resolution allows for unprecedented detail and clarity in gameplay.
  • Weapons aplenty: The variety of stores available to you in the mall offer an endless supply of resources, including vehicles, makeshift weapons, and food.
  • Save and learn: Encounter other survivors along the way. Helping them will give you more clues as to what has happened and what you need to do to stop it.
