Plot:
A long time ago a farmer by the name of Sullivan had his land taken by the government. This land was eventually used for the construction of the ANU, but Sullivan was not happy about it. 100 years after this event Sullivan returned from the dead, and began turning humans into zombies! Sullivan’s hoard grew rapidly, aiming to avenge their master. Meanwhile survivors were organised under a mysterious fellow known only as “The Captain”. During the conflict a crafty individual set up a shop with items which were sold to either side of the fight for a strange currency known as Escapium. In the end the humans were forced to make a final stand against the undead before every last one of them fell.

Plot:
A strange infection broke out on the ANU campus which brought the dead back to life! This strange virus spread quickly across the country and soon the world was thrown into anarchy. Survivors at the ANU discovered a mysterious patient who had been bitten but who did not die, she appeared to have had some form of immunity to the virus! The humans acted quickly on the information and knew that if they could get the valuable information in her DNA then they could use it to barter an airlift to (temporary) safety from the military. In an epic stand they managed to hold of a zombie horde long enough to extract 75% of the patient’s DNA, but had unfortunately lost the Somatic Necrosis inhibiting pills – meaning she succumbed to the virus. With the information secured they moved towards the location where the helicopter pickup would occur. Meanwhile the dead patient rose again and became the ‘Zombie Queen’, urging her zombies on to kill off the remaining humans. The humans made a final stand and were but 10 minutes away from rescue when the zombies broke their lines, killing them all.
