Stories From The Outbreak is a turn-based zombie roguelike RPG where you lead a group of survivors from the doomed city of Riga towards the ferry sailing across the North Sea.

Scavenge supplies, fight the zombies, decide the fate of your crew. What are you willing to sacrifice to survive the zombie plague?

The year is 2020. The new disease have been sweeping through the world for some weeks. Zombies rise from the dead and attack humans. You wake up in your apartment in the city of Riga and turn the radio on. The order has completely collapsed and the streets are not safe. The police and the army will not protect you. There is one last ferry heading out to Iceland from the western shore. You can only rely on yourself now.

Stories from the outbreak is aiming to be a story generator first and foremost. Not all of the people are going to survive. Not every team is going to make it. This is how it is intended to be.

Stories From The Outbreak is currently available through Steam Early Access, and will remain so for at least three months.

"The Early Access version features a shorter scenario that immerses players in the early stages of the zombie apocalypse. The game boasts 11 unique characters, more than 15 enemies, and three expansive maps for players to explore. The challenging permadeath gameplay means that not every party is going to reach the end of the journey, but this is how we intend it to be. "

“The plan is to have deeper intercharacter relationship systems and improved storytelling with individual character tasks and quests. There are going to be more maps, events, characters in the final version of the game.”

Key Features:

  • Form a team of survivors, hoping to escape this hell. Decide the fates of your team members as you go
  • Characters talk between themselves, showing polarization in views. Not every team is going to reach the ferry, but their stories matter. Will different views prevent them from reaching the goals?
  • Escape the dying world: traverse the area maps in search of shelter and supplies
  • Fight zombies when necessary: there are 15+ different enemy types in the game

 Stories From The Outbreak is coming to PC (Steam) in 2023.
