A strange illness begins in China and spreads worldwide. Symptoms of the disease include a high fever, loss of motor functions, erratic behavior, and ultimately death. Within an hour of dying, those affected reanimate and become walking corpses. These Undead creatures roam the cities and towns of the world, biting living victims and eating their flesh.

The Undead creatures multiply quickly and soon the entire world is infested with them. They roam our cities and the countryside, searching for victims and making otherworldly moaning sounds.

Small groups of people across the world are fighting to survive as scientists struggle to find a cure for the disease, governments struggle to contain the crisis, some people form "death cults" and start worshiping the walking corpses and making human sacrifices to them, and there are those who seek to take advantage of the crisis for their own gain. Mankind is in danger of extinction as its existence is threatened by the Undead. Can mankind survive? Join the fight to survive this Undead Apocalypse. The following positions are available:

1. Survivor 2. Death Cult Member 3. Scientist 4. Government Character 5. Characters who take advantage of the crisis for their own gain
