Once Upon An Apocalypse is a survival adventure game set in retro graphics
The day has finally come. A zombie outbreak has infected almost all the humans. Only a few survivors are out there, trying to find a group to get protection and food. You belong to one of these groups. Well, actually you are a sort of "leader" of the group. The guy that gives instructions and takes care of reserves and guard the camp.
Survive. That's your goal here. Survive as long as you can. At least, until some rescue unit find the place. To achieve that you must keep the group united and in high spirits. Otherwise, they'll leave the camp gradually and, believe me, you don't want that: each survivor can contribute to the group survival with their own skills (hunt, search survivors, kill zombies, guard...). Thus, you must find the balance: the more survivors, the easier will be managing Zombie threat and camp guard but, the more food supplies you'll need to keep them in a good mood. You are the decision man, so it's all up to you.
One of the strongest points of the game is the graphics. It is set in pixelated 2D graphics that reminds classic point'n'click SCUMM adventures. One of its weakness is AI: mood should have a deeper impact in survivors decision to leave the camp. In addition, the leader should have a wider range of actions (for example, fire a survivor from the camp or kill him/her). That would increase the difficulty and, in consequence, the playability of the game. Auto-Save game also would be nice.
And you were there trying to survive a Zombie Apocalypse!
