September 23rd, Warsaw, Poland.
The Poland-based indie games publisher Games Operators and indie games developer Jutsu Games are today very happy and excited to announce that they have just launched a Kickstarter campaign for their upcoming post-apocalyptic-themed city rebuilder game “Infection Free Zone” (which is in development for PC).
Unlike any other game out there, Infection Free Zone will allow you to try and survive a mysterious pandemic outbreak, but not in some fantasy world of an alternate future. Instead, thanks to the OpenStreetMap’s real-world data, you’ll be able to build your base around your very own house, workplace, or any other building that’s dear to you. And as we all know, we have a much greater chance of winning a battle if it’s personal.
Support the game on Kickstarter (https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/gameops/infection-free-zone-city-survival-with-real-maps), and don’t forget to add it to your Steam Wishlist (https://store.steampowered.com/app/1465460/Infection_Free_Zone/).
ABOUT INFECTION FREE ZONE
“The Mad Virus” came out of nowhere and spread throughout the world at breakneck speed. Most people were lucky – it caused their hearts to stop, and just like that, they were gone and didn’t have to worry about what the world would turn into after all hell broke loose. Others were less fortunate, losing control over themselves once infected and becoming aggressive toward just about everything. As a result, it didn’t take long for entire societies to collapse, followed by evacuated cities and deficiencies in essential resources like electricity, water, and food. Yet, the truly doomed are neither the dead nor infected but the ones who’ve survived. The ones like you, forced to live on and try to rebuild whatever is left of the civilization we once knew.
Infection Free Zone is a base-building, city rebuilder strategy game set in a post-apocalyptic world of the future. Become an apocalypse survivor. Take the lead of a group of those still alive and mentally healthy from your city and try to establish a new “Infection Free Zone” that will allow you to make it through the night. Scavenge for resources, fight the infected, and defend your base from other survivors’ attacks. Consider anything and everything that might increase your chances of living and rebuilding the world as you knew it.
INFECTION FREE ZONE – MAIN FEATURES
Rebuild any REAL CITY in the world. Use OpenStreetMap’s real-world data and choose any city in the world in which to play. Set up shelters and production facilities. Adapt existing buildings to new needs. Build farms and powerplants, and don’t forget to establish defenses with walls, gates, and towers.
Scavenge for resources. Make good use of your knowledge of the city and find the best place to defend your base. Remember where the grocery stores and pharmacies were. Figure out where to find weapons. Keep in mind that old, devastated buildings might be filled with resources but also the infected lurking in the dark. So, if you decide to explore the ruins, you’d better be well-prepared.
Fight the infected. Prepare for large hordes of enemies attacking your base every night. Fight them off with every tool available – melee and ranged weapons, vehicles, walls, and even light sources. Choose to research a vaccine or cure that will stop the virus from spreading and ensure your ultimate victory, or simply enjoy rebuilding entire cities.
Protect your base from the living. Remember that your zone is not the only one that exists out there. And, while some other groups of people who survived may be friendly, willing to help, and trade with you, others may turn out to be as hostile as the infected.
Infection Free Zone is now live on Kickstarter. The game is being developed by Jutsu Games and will be published by Games Operators on PC in early 2023. Kickstarter backers will be able to play the beta version of the game in Q1 2022.
