No, this isn’t a game based on the movie that Airplane! was originally based on. In this Zero Hour, an evil mastermind has released the deadly Z-B13 virus. It is spreading fast and mutating quickly. It’s up to you and the others in your group to stop it, as well as capture the person behind it. It’s a push-your-luck style survival game, and it’s up on Kickstarter now.
From the campaign:
A mysterious mastermind is behind the spread of the rapidly mutating Z-B13 virus, turning its victims into the feral Afflicted! You and your fellow survivors are unaffected by the virus – for now – but time is growing short as the virus continues to evolve and mutate. Your only hope to survive is to uncover clues about the mastermind’s identity and location – and stop them in their tracks. You need to explore cities, gather resources, stay one step ahead of the Afflicted, and prevent the Z-B13 virus from mutating even further. But with careful planning and a bit of luck, there’s a chance to reverse the effects and cure the Afflicted… instead of becoming one of them.
Zero Hour is a cooperative press-your-luck survival game for 1-4 players, in which survivors of the mysterious Z-B13 virus fight against all odds to stop the Mastermind behind its release. Players win by finding the Mastermind behind the outbreak and stopping them while preventing the Z-B13 virus from mutating. Created by award-winning game designer Jay Little (X-Wing, Star Wars RPG, Blood Bowl: Team Manager) and featuring artwork from noted illustrator Matias Tapia (Borderlands 2, Battleborn), Zero Hour presents a team-based, pulp adventure take on the zombie apocalypse in a 60 to 90 minute game featuring a dynamic three-act story.
