We always fantacized about the end of the world.
We wondered what would cause it, and what it would be like living in the aftermath.
We never thought it would actually happen.
We never thought it would be like this.

You’ve spent years surviving from day to day, fighting for every scrap of food and drop of water, and defending yourself from those who would take what little you have - including your life. Finding some resource-rich ruins, you decide to settle down and try to make a new life for yourself. You are not alone, however - there are others who would like to join you...or rob you...or worse.

In Holdout, you will be building your wasteland home in order to make it suitable for daily life, including sources of water, food, and proper shelter. Realizing that there is strength in numbers, and through an innate desire to help other survivors, you hope to bring others into your settlement to form a cooperative community. Your ingenuity will be challenged, as creating something from nothing is not easily done. Your settlement will be a proud bastion of hope for the scattered survivors of the wasteland - and a target for the marauding Raiders who do not seek to help, but to destroy. To win the game, you must achieve the goals for your chosen scenario by the end of six game rounds. These goals usually involve having achieved certain levels of resource development.

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.
