Dystopia Rising explores the grim realities of our potential future. A cruel, savage land is all that's left, punished by generations of radiation and crude survival after civilization collapsed in the wake of a zombie apocalypse. Still, even in amongst the ruins and squalor picking through the remains of rusted-out strip malls and decaying suburbs, there are survivors.
Kit-bashed shelters and improvised scrap technology are the tools of these rugged individuals trying to find a way to live in these dark times. Each survivor must choose how to live in this lawless, uncivilized world. Will you fight as a paragon of humanity, rebelling against the dying light of civilization to build a better tomorrow, or will you succumb to the harsh cynical realities of the world and prey on those without the killer instinct to survive?
