What the developers have to say:

Why Early Access?

“Being a 1 man development team, Early Access will allow us to gather player feedback into developing process. It is really important that players help shape the state of the game.”

Approximately how long will this game be in Early Access?

“We plan to keep the game in Early Access for as long as it takes to reach the point where we are happy with the content and gameplay. It’s hard to establish a concrete timeline but hopefully that will be around a year,”

How is the full version planned to differ from the Early Access version?

“We hope the game evolves naturally based on feedback from players but a few things will always remain a priority.

- A new environment with natural looking biomes.
- More items and crafting content.
- Better AI behaviors and intelligence.”

What is the current state of the Early Access version?

“The game currently offers a singleplayer sandbox experience with many features already in place. Please refer to the "ABOUT THIS GAME" section below for a complete list of current features.”

Will the game be priced differently during and after Early Access?

“I'm unsure if the price will change after or during EA. I want the price to be reflective of the potential enjoyment a player can take from the game.”

How are you planning on involving the Community in your development process?

“One of the most important parts of Early Access game development in our opinion is the community and its feedback. We plan to be very active here in the Steam forums and discussions to make sure all questions are answered and all suggestions are heard.”

About This Game

The Infected Lore:


A virus was a lot more serious than anticipated, a treatment was looking promising. A drug trial seemed to work, many were getting better and fatality rates were dropping.

But oh my god, something went wrong. Some unexpected side effects began to arise, causing human DNA to mutate into something unknown. We call them Vambies, they seem to look like mix between a vampire and zombie.

Well this is what the media is telling us but is that the truth?

What The Infected is About:


Several friends headed out to a remote part of a forest for a weekend of camping. However, after not returning and no sign of their whereabouts, one of the parents decided to go take a look see at their last known location. What did he find out?
