So you’re a half-human/half-zombie hybrid
As if a hail of meteors reducing the earth to a barren wasteland wasn’t bad enough, the devastation released a mysterious virus that resurrected the dead. Ravaged by fire from the sky and the dead below, only a fraction of the human population remains. They are largely clustered into small outposts where power-hungry opportunists capitalize on the chaos. A rare survivor of exposure to the virus, part-zombie Reid (this is you) is captured by the twisted Nebron, leader of the Ark. After escaping from the torture table into the surrounding wasteland, Reid is determined to return to the city and exact some apocalyptic justice.
Stare in wild wonder as the half-human, half-zombie protagonist Reid. He will slice through foes on a quest for righteous vengeance! Wield his inhuman zombie powers to fend off enemies while searching the wasteland for answers to what happened to the only man he could trust. Build fantastical new armaments, conjure curious concoctions, or even grow and harvest zombie soldiers. These monstrous beings will stand by Reid’s side against whatever the apocalypse throws at him. It’s a dangerous world, and in order to stay alive, Reid must take advantage of the dead!
Key Features of DEADCRAFT
- Farm the Dead to Stay Alive ‒ Plant fresh corpses (or just a combination of limbs) into the ground and give them a little TLC. They will then sprout into an undead army of infantry, sentries, and more!
- Creeptastic Crafting ‒ Surviving the apocalypse sometimes means using whatever scraps one can find. Other times it means enlisting a loyal undead to assist you. This includes building and running an entire factory of grotesque machinery. What does this do? Why you’ll be churning out an unholy amalgamation of survival items.
- Death-Defying Powers of the Undead ‒ Reid’s zombie side gives him a powerful advantage in a fight. It allows him to shield himself from danger or swat enemies away like annoying gnats. However as each devoured enemy pushes him closer to his zombie side, he’ll have to take care to maintain what little humanity he has left.
- Become a Savior…or a Scourge ‒ Help out other survivors to learn new recipes or abilities. But if Reid’s hard up for money or supplies, shake down a local and take it off them…as long as he doesn’t mind potentially becoming a wanted man.
