Us Against Them

Us Against Them is a hardcore arcade game about a ragtag bunch of survivors trying to make it through a zombie apocalypse. Order your squad around the ruins of the city, while avoiding the living dead trying to pass their virus to you and eat your brain. If some of your people get bitten and infected, you need to make a decision - will you execute them before they manage to transmit the disease to the rest of the team?

A top-down squad based survival strategy.

This game was created for Global Game Jam 2018 in 48 hours. The theme was "Transmission".

You control a squad of survivors trying to survive in the middle of the zombie apocalypse. You don't control each unit directly, instead you give movement orders to the whole team, and they try to keep a formation. They automatically shoot the nearby zombies. You need to find gaps in the increasing horde of enemies and manoeuvre between the obstacles. Wounded survivors can succumb to the zombie virus at which point they will turn undead - right in the middle of your formation. To avoid that, at any moment you can make an executive decision, and execute them yourself. As the time passes you can call supply drops with ammunition or medicine, but to make use of them you'll still need to reach them.
