I’m writing a book called Outbreak: Infected, and I’d appreciate some feedback. You play as a male, female, or nonbinary person trying to survive the zombie outbreak. The MC will start off their apocalyptic journey as infected. However, they aren’t like any normal zombie out there. While the other infected are mindless, hungry, feral, flesh-craving creatures who aren’t considered to be human anymore, you have control over your urges. You can either gather infected/zombies and try to work with them, help survivors, join a group of bandits, start a cult, help find a cure, just try to survive, or a combination of those!

Chapter 1 length: 64,852 words
Chapter 2 length: 1,107 words
Updating schedule: Once a week on Fridays
This week’s progress:
- Sick this week. No update.
What I need help with right now: How’s the pacing? Are the options realistic and diverse enough for your playstyle(s), or do you need more choices? The story is in the very early stages, and I’ve only worked on the doctor’s path as of now, but I’d appreciate any feedback you have for that portion!
Side note: Things that I say and plan for are subject to change.
