We are getting ready to relaunch our Kickstarter Campaign and to get us ready we are going to posting some little bits of the backstory of the main characters of the game.

First up is the The Doctor:

The Doctor has done quite well for himself in Westbrooke. He had worked for the past 13 years as a surgeon in the largest hospital in Westbrooke, and he was paid very well to do so. He had recently paid off his mortgage on his mansion and was about to finally make the repairs on that boat of his. Of course, none of that matters now that everyone in the city is either dead and eating each other or about to be dead from the incoming nuclear strike. If only he could somehow make his way to The Dock and get his boat back up and running, then he would have a way out of this mess.

Here is some back story for The Convict!



The Convict still had no idea how he managed to make it out of the prison alive. The place had gone to hell once another inmate had somehow released all of the prisoners. After that, it became a bloodbath. Prisoners killing officers, Officers killing prisoners, and worst of all the dead returning to life only to bite a chunk out of their best friends. The convict made it out of there alive but not without having to take the lives of others. He didn't want to. He definitely wasn't the most upstanding citizen before, but he was never a killer. Until now. And now his retribution was coming, the entire city's retribution was coming by way of nuke. Maybe he deserved this ending though, or he didn't. Perhaps with this group he was with they could make their way out. Maybe they still had a chance.

The Soldier



The Soldier wasn't about to let a bunch flesh eating zombies, a giant barricade, or a nuclear bomb stop him. He'd gotten out of some equally tight situations before in the middle east and now he was going to get out of this situation too. He knew he couldn't do it alone though. He heard The Doc talking about a plan to escape on that old boat of his. It was a decent option but he knew there was a helicopter back at the airport that was just out of gas. If they could get some fuel and make it there they would be home free. Now he just needed to convince the rest of the party to go with his plan.

They Pyro and what was going on in his mind:



The Pyro couldn't believe he'd gotten himself mixed up with these people. They were exactly the kind of people he despised before the collapse. But now he needed them. He needed them to get out of this godforsaken city alive. He couldn't believe how fast the entire place had gone to hell. First just a few reports here and there of the dead returning to life and consuming the living, then mass panic. Within a week the entire city was surrounded by a 40 foot barricade and now a nuclear bomb was on its way to destroy everything. The Pyro didn't like it, but he knew they were his only chance of survival. Because out there, out there was hell. They needed a plan, a way out, and he was going to give it to them. If they could work together to get the necessary ingredients he could create some explosives large enough to blast a hole through the barricade and they would live, at least for another day.

The Mechanic just sat there stunned. She couldn't believe what she had just heard. They had been waiting, and waiting for the government to send in the supplies and help that they had promised. But now, she had just heard on The Soldier's radio that they were going to nuke the entire city! The whole place was going to be destroyed! They would have to act fast if they wanted to live to see another day because the radio had said only twelve hours until the place went up in flames. The Doc had said something about his old boat that needed fixing. Maybe they could get there and she could do the repairs. She was a car mechanic but all they had to do was swap out the propeller. How difficult could that be? She really didn't know how but she knew they needed to get out of The Shelter right now.

Here's the backstory for The Scavenger!

The Scavenger never thought she'd find herself holed up in one place so long with this many other people. She had spent most of life hiding in different places in the city but she knew that she could only survive now with their help. She learned to handle herself growing up on the streets but no one could last for long out there. She knew they didn't completely trust her but she was going to prove her value to them. With her background she had plenty of experience getting herself out of tight situations. She knew she could help the group get out this one. She was going to show them what she was really made of.
