Zombie Survival

The Zombie Outbreak has resulted in a dual society where humans and zombies live side by side in relative peace.  Create medicines from nature, practice stealth and camouflage, build defensive fortresses and hone your weaponry skills. Try to survive as a human- or join the Zombies, you decide!
