ESCAPE FROM PROJEKT RIESE
💀Welcome player to grim history as seen through the cracked lens of the supernatural…
Escape from Projekt Riese is a solo/co-op narrative campaign game of tactical combat set in the horrific zombie plague of World War Two. It is 1943, the location, a secret underground Nazi base somewhere under the Owl Mountains. Your heroes are the survivors of a allied strike team, fighting to complete their crucial mission. Rendezvous with, and extract the spy, the eccentric genius and the resistance cell who have aided them. Then, on the way out, blow everything all to hell. The stakes – a cure for the zombie plague and a chance to finally tip this war in the favour of the free world. Your heroes must work together to find the best path, each scenario giving them options on which way to go next.
Escape from Projekt Riese is a choose your own adventure style game. A player's choices determine the fate of their heroes, for better or worse.
The game plays out over a series of linked scenarios, a campaign with several different outcomes. Results and events in each Campaign scenario affect the start of the next, creating an ongoing and evolving story.
Escape from Projekt Riese takes you to Festungsandlage Nr 8, a hidden underground complex where twisted Nazi science seeks to unlock and weaponize the secrets of the zombie plague. In these labyrinthine chambers beneath a Templar fortress, the products of Ahnenerbe experimentation and the newly risen dead, hungering for fresh bodies to add to their ranks, stalk the halls. You are in charge of whether your heroes survive or perish.
Your choices and tactical skills will be tested along with the ingenuity of your heroes. The survival of each of your unique combat specialists depends upon your ability to conserve resources and exploit the zombies' weaknesses. You will need to choose your tactics wisely; sometimes stealth is more important than firepower.
You may fail the first attempt at escape but with experience and proven tactics, you will advance towards the victory the free world needs.
