Whether through environmental disaster, contagious disease vectors, alien invasion, or zombie apocalypse, the world as we knew it is now over! OVER!
Somehow, you managed to squeak by with your life. So, now what?
Do you form an alliance with other survivors? Do you find an abandoned cabin in the woods to hole up and hide from the baddies? Do you mourn the loss of cell phones and bubble gum? Or do you embrace your new, existence as a zombie and savor those tasty, tasty brains?
With movies like The 5th Wave and Pride and Prejudice and Zombies, shows like iZombie and The Walking Dead, and games like SAS: Zombie Assault and ARK: Survival Evolved, the question of “What if…?” seems to be on everyone’s mind.
