#4951128 Help needed with a story

Posted by StillWorkingOnIt on 20 June 2012 - 03:51 PM

not the greatest author in the world, but ill give it a shot.

So as a story line i was thinking that in the semi distant future, 20-30 years, a second cold war had broken out between the Americans and the Russians. Nuclear weapons had gotten to a point where it would spell world disaster if used.The Americans had been working for some time now on modifying genes, and with the start if this war the focus had moved from creating a bigger and badder bomb to biological warfare. The Americans were working on modifying strands of Bovine Spongiform encephalopathy (mad cow disease) to create a similar effect in humans. eventually a team of scientists felt they had something ready for testing, however it was required to be transported to a larger facility to accommodate these tests. (Obviously they dont test on humans, they would use ordinary cells) 10 containers would be transported via cargo ship to the new facility. When removing the cargo containers (the big metal ones) at the new destination the crane lifting it snapped dropping it against the side of the ship (breaking it open) and into the water. Upon retrieval they discovered one of the containers had been damaged and may have begun to leak. The government issued a quarantine on the area and blocked off the water supply calling it contamination via pollution to prevent the public of gaining knowledge of the incident. In case of the virus having already been contracted, 100's of top scientists are issued to study the remaining samples to understand its effects and develop a possible cure. Within a month or so they conclude the strand is benign and has no effect on humans whatsoever. The quarantine is lifted and is said to be a false alarm and the project is scrapped. (Fast forward 5 years) In a remote area of the world with no population you the main character are a military pilot (hence the gun experience and a reason for your one vs one fighting skills) guarding a string of small communication outposts with several other soldiers as part of B Company, because of previous attacks on communication towers by Russia. It has been almost 1 year that you've been here. You have received no communications from home for 2 weeks now and assume its an error on their part. Strong winds had knocked down one of the towers just a few days ago and with no way to contact base you and your company decide to head back for supplies to fix the downed tower. Mid flight you realize your plane is running low on fuel and attempt to make an emergency landing in the nearest airport. Calling in you get no response and realize you have to go in now. you come in for the landing with essentially no fuel and your makes a hard landing causing you to black out. When you wake up you're in an empty house. You go outside still dizzy and see a man walking across the street his back turned to you and you limp to him calling out to him. Your a few feet away when he turns around and you catch your first glimpse of the zombie. You stagger backwards and fall down when you hear a gunshot and the zombie drops dead. someone grabs you from behind and pulls you back in towards the house and you see more zombies on the horizon. The guy tells you, your going to get him killed after he saved your life and your given a gun. So you start right off killing zombies (gameplay) After killing the zombies you have a small talk and he tells you about everything, shows you news articles, tells you about the government cover-up and the mutation of the virus from benign to malignant, etc. and thats the start of the game.

And that is all Posted Image it didnt take long to write, not the best, but not bad
