A downloadable kinetic novel for Windows, macOS, and Linux

Follow Adam Turner, a second-year medical student, and Ben Young, a recovering heroin addict in two parallel stories as they fight to survive after a deadly virus is unleashed in New York City.

The Outbreak: Day Zero is an intense, dramatic kinetic novel for mature readers, complete with full music, sound effects, and gritty photography that takes approximately 50 minutes to complete.

Please Note: There are no gameplay choices in this app--it's just a story (like a comic).

I remember playing this back in the day. I think it ended on a cliffhanger?  Nice to see it reuploaded though!
