The zombie apocalypse is here (again), but you’ve survived (hooray!), but the quaint Sunset Island (ominous name, if you think about it) that has been your refuge apparently isn’t going to be 100% spared from the mindless hordes. That’s the story behind Escape from Sunset Island, a game that’s up on Kickstarter and looking for some funding love.
In the game, players start out as one of the survivors on Sunset Island or as the player controlling the horde of zombies. The game’s semi-cooperative, as the survivors want to survive, but that feeling to be “the one that gets away” is strong. I.E. – if you’re being chased by zombies, sometimes the best way to get away is trip the guy next to you. Survivors must collect water, fuel, and food in order to escape. The zombies, of course, are just ready for some lunch.
The campaign has passed their funding goal, so it’s on to breaking through stretch goals for the next 21 days.
