"If you're looking for a quick zombie game, it really scratches the itch." - Erik Dewey (On Board Games)

In the aftermath of a zombie outbreak, the world lies in ruins. You and your fellow survivors leave the sanctuary of your safe house to search for supplies. But danger is everywhere and your safety is not guaranteed...

Play alone or with friends: The Road to Ruin offers fast and deep exploration and combat in a compact package. One to four players control survivors of a zombie apocalypse that has plunged the world into ruin.

Explore the city: You explore hidden locations to discover items you need, but watch out for the zombie hordes lurking everywhere! Locations have unique functions, such as hospitals where you heal wounds or police stations where you find weapons and items.

Fight to survive: Combat is a tense and thrilling battle where you use your weapons, equipment, and items to fight off the relentless zombie hordes.

"Surprising difficult, unrelenting, and most certain unapologetic, The Road to Ruin is a game of survival, grit, and guts. If you enjoy a challenge, where everyone starts the game, but few will finish it, and victory is only possible if everyone plays for the group, then do try The Road to Ruin. A trip down this road is sure to teach you something." - Cyrus Kirby (Father Geek)

Scanned image
These products were created by scanning an original printed edition. Most older books are in scanned image format because original digital layout files never existed or were no longer available from the publisher.

For PDF download editions, each page has been run through Optical Character Recognition (OCR) software to attempt to decipher the printed text. The result of this OCR process is placed invisibly behind the picture of each scanned page, to allow for text searching. However, any text in a given book set on a graphical background or in handwritten fonts would most likely not be picked up by the OCR software, and is therefore not searchable. Also, a few larger books may be resampled to fit into the system, and may not have this searchable text background.

For printed books, we have performed high-resolution scans of an original hardcopy of the book. We essentially digitally re-master the book. Unfortunately, the resulting quality of these books is not as high. It's the problem of making a copy of a copy. The text is fine for reading, but illustration work starts to run dark, pixellating and/or losing shades of grey. Moiré patterns may develop in photos. We mark clearly which print titles come from scanned image books so that you can make an informed purchase decision about the quality of what you will receive.
Original electronic format
These ebooks were created from the original electronic layout files, and therefore are fully text searchable. Also, their file size tends to be smaller than scanned image books. Most newer books are in the original electronic format. Both download and print editions of such books should be high quality.
