A popular genre for all gaming is the zombie apocalypse. And let’s face it, a lot of us have imagined ourselves in such a situation. Of course, we feel we’d be one of the survivors, looking to do battle against the undead masses. And that’s just what sort of fantasy you get to play out in Pathogen: Unclassified, a new RPG up on Kickstarter.
From the Kickstarter:
Pathogen: Unclassified is an apocalyptic survival horror role-playing game (RPG). It is set 3 years after a global parasitic outbreak took over by altering people’s minds. It struck fast and without mercy. Over time, the uninfected survivors (approximately 9% of the world population) realized not all the infected were the same. They were still alive, but the parasite is in control of the host’s body.
What the survivors know-
A majority of the infected are mindless meat sacks only driven by the need to feed on flesh.
A much smaller percentage of the infected have higher mental functionality, but seem to get united orders from a mysterious source. The survivors refer to them as “The Hive”.
A very small percentage of the infected still maintained their identity and mind, but they had serious physical drawbacks and some mental issues. However, they developed Psionic abilities.
The campaign’s right around 1/3 funded with still 27 days left to go.
