Dead State is a compelling, high-tension RPG set at the beginning of the zombie apocalypse. As society is beginning to fall apart, the player must organize allies, fortify a shelter, scout for food and supplies, and make uncertain alliances, attempting to hold together a group as humanity teeters on the brink of extinction. And although the zombies lurk as an ever present threat, the biggest obstacle to the player may just be other humans with the same goal: survival at any cost.
The game is currently being funded on Kickstarter, and while they have already exceeded their goal there are plenty of stretch goals for them to chase after the next eight days. Be sure to pay them a visit if you would like to know more about the game, especially the interview with Leif Chappelle. While most of his time is spent working on Guild Wars 2 he has composed some great music for Dead State which you can listen to near the end of the interview.
