You were just going to the bank. You were expecting a long queue, maybe an irate teller. Not this.
Premise: A survival/horror game set in modern-day Britain. Game will start just before the outbreak - all characters will be at the bank in the first scene - and cover a short period (perhaps 1-2 weeks) afterwards.
Tone: Though it will involve zombies and fighting to stay alive this will not be an unrelenting horrorfest. Light touches of humour and interpersonal connections are encouraged.
Characters: You should apply with an ‘average’ character - bank teller, housewife, teacher, bus driver. Make them interesting but not special. Once accepted you will be randomly assigned someone else’s character to play and yours will be given to someone else.
Feel free to create your own strength/weakness/subplot cards.
Activity requirements: This is intended to be a relatively quick game. Please only apply if you are an active, communicative player. Due to the nature of the plot if you go incommunicado your character may be left behind and/or their delicious brains may be eaten.
Additional information: This is a test game for the idea of ‘random character assignment’ as discussed here. Please only apply if you are a) happy to play a randomly assigned character and b) happy to see someone else playing the character you app with. This is an experiment to encourage people to play outside their comfort zones and try something new. Feel free to get in touch to ask questions before applying.
