Check out this awesome youtube vid for a really fun game! 
(This is the first chapter, there is a Prologue that you should read first that sets the scene. You can find it on my profile page!)

   It was before my time when the beginning of the end started. Jeremy told me all of the stories about what life was like before the fallout of the planet. There was electricity and running water, cars so you didn't have to walk, air planes that defied gravity in the sky; all of these things are only distant dreams now. Sometimes I look at a TV with its cracked screen and wonder what it was like to watch a program on it.

   None of these things exist anymore; all there is to do on this planet now is to find a safe place to stay alive. That's everyone's goal, everyone who still cares, who hasn't lost their sanity to the infection. We find a place and give it a week at most before we have to move, the only real safe place is the compound, the place where I was born.

   The compound is where the military, what's left of them, stay. They protect the families that show up there when a woman is pregnant. Whoever would want to bring a child into this forsaken battlefield is insane, but things happen now, especially since we don't really have something Jeremy called protection on this planet anymore. Anyways they go there because that's where the only hospital exists, the doctors naturally fled to the protection of the guys with big guns. Once she has the child her and her companions can live in the compound for a maximum of 5 years, so the baby is safe and can begin to learn and develop without the mother worrying about having to run; but once those five years are up they have to leave because they need the room for new families.

   My mother died giving birth to me so Jeremy, her best friend (not the father he swore to me) who was her only traveling companion was appointed my guardian. We were still allowed to stay the allotted 5 years even though my mother wasn't there so he raised me all on his own and taught me the truths of the world, never sugar-coating it.
We left the day I turned five and my birthday present was my first weapon, a pistol modified for a child.

   I really would rather not tell you all about Jeremy, no it's too soon for that; besides I need to focus, I need to get to my destination before I die.

I'm afraid to sleep, because I'm afraid I might not wake up. Sometimes I think that the next blink I make could be my last, so I savor what I see; every washed out colour, every pattern that isn't gone. I always touch everything I can find, remember how it feels, if its cold or hot, even the things that are peeling with rust. Every sense I have is on overdrive so I don't miss anything, because I want to remember it before it's gone.

Almost everything was lost in the first few years, at least that's what my friend Jeremy told me before he died. Don't feel bad everyone I know dies, that's why rule number one is to not get attached. Getting attached is worse than death because you feel it long after they're gone, it's a pain that never truly leaves you.

I remember the stories Jeremy used to tell me about the before, all of the cool things that they had, that he grew up on. There was this thing called television that he used to watch all the time. He used to point out TV's on our trips, I looked at them with wonder and thought, 'Well there's one of the many things I'll never get to experience.'

I loved Jeremy's stories, they made time pass easier. He helped me fall asleep with all of the books he used to read to me before bedtime. I don't sleep much now.

No, never mind that, I don't want to think about him; I don't want to be attached. Right now I just have to keep moving, all on my own because I can't fucking trust anyone, rule number two is to not trust anyone because everyone lies now. I'm on my way to a place Jeremy called Zone Zero, one of the only safe places left in this messed up world. We were supposed to go together, but that plan is long gone by now,  I'm not a kid anymore though, I can take care of myself.

I concentrate on my hearing and grip my pistol because at the moment it's the only thing keeping me sane. Shaking my flashlight as it begins to dim,  I slowly move forward to the only hope I have left.

Life has gotten more clear and im starting to see people for who they really are.......well its not always pleasant to see how someone close to me has changed, its important to know the truth about them i guess.
