Well, civilization has come to an end again. Damnit, Carl! I told you to not sell of all those shares in the Zombie Repellent Company all at once! Now there’s zombies everywhere, the stock market’s crashed, and we still gotta pay the rent! We’ve gotta band together in order to head out into the zombie-infested zones in order to find any goods we can as well as try and restart the economy by hustle, scam, or scheme. That’s also the story behind Red Markets, a new RPG that’s up on Kickstarter now.
This game sort of takes the ending of Shaun of the Dead and gives is less-rosy end. Ok, so zombies exist, but you still gotta go to work in the morning. The upper-echelons of society have walled themselves off away from the lingering zombie menace. Meanwhile, the “average Joes” of the world still have to bring home a paycheck. What if you were thrown into such a world? That’s what Red Markets has you explore.
The campaign’s doing rather well. They’re closing in on 3x funded with still 25 days left to go.
