Hey that1german here, the new kid on the block. So I was wondering if there would be any interest in a zombie based novel. But instead of taking the route as Zombie Exodus or the Walking Dead, you’ll be trying to prevent such an outcome from happening. Got you interested yet? Good.
You’ll be playing as a field researcher who’ll see firsthand the horror the upcoming apocalypse will have. Hopping country to country, you and a team of researchers/soldiers will try to discover the origin of this menace. Will you be a savior of a broken world or will you succumb and join the horde as well?
Now I’ll be trying to add a new variation to this story. At the beginning, you’ll be choosing what kind of research you major in, options being virus and parasites (I’m looking for a third variable so any input on that would be appreciative), and what you choose will be what you’re going to be up against in the game. Victims of the virus that reanimates dead tissue will be slower and focus more of eating human flesh. However, if a parasitic cause were to be chosen, then the infected would be just as fast as a regular human, as their purpose isn’t to feed but to spread the parasites to other hosts. Each disease will offer a new play through and a way of playing.
So what do you think? Too similar to world war z (bonus stats for naming character Brad Pitt)? Any and all input will be appreciated. Thank you and have a nice day.
