You are one of the last survivors in a city overrun by the walking dead. The news reports say it's the result of a government experiment gone wrong, and advise citizens to remain indoors to wait for aid. But you're not getting any safer, and you'd be wise to get out of town while you can.
The zombies aren't your only concern, however.
Thieves, cults, roadblocks, gun-nut survivors, and military defenses are just some of what you'll have to deal with as you make your escape. It's the one little thing you don't expect, one wrong turn, one bad decision that will get you killed.
It's going to take more than guts and a gun to get you out alive. Use your knowledge of the event, your instincts, and every ounce of your luck.
Maybe it will be enough.
Maybe you'll find the one way out.
