About Survivor Z
« on: February 01, 2013, 03:31:21 PM »
From the creator of "ZDAY Survival Simulator", "Survivor Z" is a text-based Role Playing Game set 311 days after the ZDAY apocalypse has wiped out 90% of the world's population.  Gameplay begins with an exciting strategy-based prologue, where the player has to make it home to the safety of their ZDAY bunker.  Then, fast forward almost a year, running low on food and water, our survivor is forced to emerge, only to find that the world has changed.  The population is decimated, and the dead roam the earth in incredible numbers.  Every decision a survivor makes can be the difference between life and death, and even the most seemingly trivial mistake can mean doom.

Gameplay in Survivor Z expands on the concept of its predecessor, "ZDAY Survival Simulator", and while still relying on a text based model, Survivor Z introduces a vastly improved and incredibly robust game engine that gives the survivor complete control over their weapons, makes all their items usable in context, and allows them to negotiate and ally with NPC survivors.

Survivor Z is the first game of it's kind, combining the intellectual challenge of a text based RPG with the fast paced action of a board game.  But Survivor Z doesn't stop there, in addition to being a very entertaining adventure game, Survivor Z adds another dimension by utilizing cloud based game content that will continually provide survivors with new updates and challenges, and uses location based services to transform the landscape around the survivor into the post apocalyptic world of Survivor Z.

Survivors will find real world location challenges like the siege at the Metreon Mall in San Francisco, the subway tunnels of Penn Station, and the Buddy Holly museum in Lubbock Texas to name just a few, as well as hundreds of challenges that can be found in any town in the country.  Everyday coffee shops, fast food restaurants, hardware stores and malls are all transformed to become the backdrops for survivor strongholds, hidden troves of weapons and supplies, and dangerous traps set by rival survivors.  No matter where you go when you are playing Survivor Z, you are in the realm of the undead, and no place is safe. 

In upcoming releases, the game will be expanded to include additional features such as crafting and Player vs Player mode.  Players will be invited to create their own challenges that they can play and share.  Follow the progress of Survivor Z on out website at and be sure to check out the new player forums at

Don Roff, renowned Author of the book "Zombies: A record of the year of infection" has written a special zombie challenge encounter which has been included in this release.
