Zpocalypse 2: Defend the Burbs

Description

Zpocalypse 2: Defends the Burbs

The cities have fallen. Nuclear ash hangs heavy in the air. Suburbia, once the pinnacle of the American dream, is now the bloody battleground of the apocalypse. But how long can the white picket fences hold back the horde? The undead are changing, mutating into horrific abominations. Will you rely on kitchen appliances and garden tools to fend off the monsters, or embrace a few mutations of your own?

Defend the ‘Burbs features a four-part campaign, with each chapter taking 90-120 minutes to complete. Throughout the story, your survivors will need to find a defensible home in the suburbs, and protect it from an undead onslaught every night. While the sun is up, those same survivors will need to be assigned to tasks: Search for supplies with choose-your-path scavenging missions, build fortifications using the crafting system, patrol for daytime stragglers, or even get some much needed rest. But beware - every choice you make during the day determines how many zombies will come a’ knockin’ when the sun goes down.

Zpocalypse 2: Wasteland (Expansion)

As the sun sets on another day of defending the Burbs, you can’t help but ask yourself, “Is this all there is? Are we truly doomed to live out our days in this suburban purgatory?”

-Enter the Wasteland-

Players brave enough to venture out beyond their white picket fences and take to the highway will find themselves greeted by mutants, bandits, mad scientists, and more. Featuring a four-part campaign adventure, new survivors, weapons,locations, craftables, and terrain, The Wasteland expansion* adds hours of blood curdling fun for the whole family**.

* Not a standalone game. Requires Zpocalypse 2: Defend the Burbs

**Not for the feint of heat. Including but not limited to: Children, grandparents, pets, and adults.

History

When the city was overcome, we thought, 'This is the end.' Then they bombed us, and we were sure it was over. Somehow, I don't know how or why, but somehow we survived the onslaught. There were only a few of us, but we escaped the pit of hell that was the urban wasteland. They always say the suburbs have it better, right? They weren't hit nearly as hard; we've found a sturdy house. It still has a roof and everything. We're hungry, tired, and it's a struggle to hold back the dead from their nightly assaults, but we're still here, we're not going down yet.

Features

  • Post-nuclear zombie apocalypse
  • Co-op and versus style of play
  • Modular tiles, so each play-through has variety
  • Elements of a tower defense game, wrapped with tactical combat
  • Instead of 1 survivor, you control a squad, this allows for the thematic death of a survivor, while the player may continue playing
  • Like the original, players each control their own squad of survivors equipped to the teeth with weapons, food, and items
  • Your actions as squad leader allow the survivors to choose their tasks on the daily planning board
  • Each choice has limited space and will come with benefits (potential for more supplies) and costs
  • With gained experience, your survivors level up on a variety skills
  • Rather than picking your path for you as in the original game, now you have the ability to carve out your survival scenario for yourself
