It's been 16 years since mankind lost to the virus. The last human settlement lies in the midst of a merciless, infected world that has been thrown back into a modern version of the Middle Ages. During the day, bandits, members of various factions, and starving survivors search the streets for useful items or someone to steal from - if necessary by force. At night, the infected roam the streets leaving their dark hiding places to hunt for the living.
