About this project

Hello, fellow survivor! Thank you for looking to donate to the zombie apocalypse survival freeform RPG game Ruins of Humanity! This game is your gateway to tons of backstabbing, brain-busting fun in the world of anarchy. The world is yours, whether you choose to build a civilization, travel across the world in search for weapons and safety, or even conquer an aircraft carrier and become king of the seas.

Classes are the brunt of what makes your survivor who they are, with different skills, weapons, and gameplay for each. They are divided into three different groups: Nomadic, Defensive, and Support. Nomadic classes are used at full potential if you are a group that moves around and lacks a solid base, while Defensive is the opposite. Support roles keep the team alive by supplying aid and resources. Each class is capable of using certain items and will receive a small debuff when handling weapons they are not proficient with.  Classes also have their own skills or abilities that help make each character unique.

The game can be tailored to each specific parties' playstyles, being compatible with shoot-n-stab, narrative heavy, and roleplay-driven RPGers. The game is also simple enough to easily explain to players who are new to tabletop RPG's, but complex enough for veteran players to still have fun. 

The primary focus of the game is to survive. In other words, manage your Hunger, Thirst, Rest, Sanity, find shelter, don't get bit, don't get backstabbed, don't be shot, and always watch your back. Even better, your friends can watch it for you.

Travel the world in a undead-ridden wasteland full of danger, loot, weapons, and adventure in Ruins of Humanity: Edition One.
