Nothing Like a Zombie Apocalypse, Eh?

Fight off zombies as you scour torn up buildings.

I have the head of a horse, your argument is invalid.

The members of my group have fallen.  I appear to be the only survivor. I’ve seen some things that would take away a man’s sanity. Weak, alone, and just now noticed a pack of dogs approaching me.

Time to teach a dog to drive.

It began in Florida. The disease had spread all over the nation in what felt like a mere couple of days and before we knew it, the people we knew weren’t the same. Neighbors, family members, significant others, all had been taken away from us by this illness. Leaving the healthy and sane ones left to ward them off, fighting with whatever and whoever they can find.

Shoot down and beat these hordes with a friend you meet along the way.

Some friends and I had gotten word that Canada was absolutely zombie free. Can you believe it? Freaking Canada, not a single brain eating monster. They’re always on top of things, eh?

So, we set out on a quest, determined to make it to the land of Canada, away from the hordes. Little did we realize how out of hand things had become in other locations. Office buildings, gas stations, apartments, the places we hold dear were completely destroyed and in ruin. Beautiful towns had fallen apart and become wastelands. It was a heartbreaking sight, America had torn apart because of the Zombies.

To reach Canada, there was a lot of ground that needed to be covered and it wasn’t going to be easy. So, we braced ourselves for the worst and anytime we met someone, we gladly included them on our journey. The bigger offense against those savages, the better. We even went so far as to make dogs a part of the defense.

Zipping in and out of buildings, we’d collect supplies and fight off anything hiding in the shadows. When leaving the buildings, we’d be greeted by hundreds of hungry creatures, ready to feast upon our flesh. It was outstanding, being completely cornered by zombies left and right; closing in on you and breaking away any possibility to escape. It becomes terrifying!

Add dogs to your group to help fight off zombies.

But we’re fine, we work together and those zombies don’t stand a – JIM, OH GOD, NO! GET OFF OF HIM! WHY? TAKE THIS! AND THAT!

Ahem.

Zombies, cool it. We’re just trying to move along here.

Okay, It officially seems that I am the only human standing from our group and my last resort is to try to progress further with these canine companions. These dogs seem to be my only hope from this point on. I must teach them how to defend themselves and escape. If they know how to drive, then there is some hope for them to move on.

He has the head of a horse, that is the perfect addition to a zombie fighting party, right?

On the bright side, they may even help another group of people in need, attempting to fend off the zombies and escape to Canada. Right now, I’ll just have to keep swinging this bat around with everything I’ve got. We’ll just wait and see.

The freedom of Canada awaits me.
