Hello Survivors!



All 589 of you did it. We're making a game!

From the OU2E Photoshoot - Featuring James Hudson one of our Premium Backers!
From the OU2E Photoshoot - Featuring James Hudson one of our Premium Backers!


You took the FIRST STEP in preparing for the ultimate Survival Horror Role Playing Experience! 

8 Degrees of Success 

In our 5 weeks together, we managed to unlock EIGHT different stretch goals raising (nearly) 600% of our goal. 


  • TWO STRAIN SERIES MODULES (ZombV and Chimera) - We can now proceed in providing two STARTING ADVENTURES (or Strain Series) for two different type of Outbreak: Senarios. Both written by our Design team at Outbreak: Undead.
  • SHORT STORY BY JENNIFER BROZIAK, with one of our backers being included IN the story! This will be featured as either part of the main books, or separately as a PDF!
  • A SET OF CARDBOARD TOKENS (Degrees of Success/Failure, Depletion, Health, etc) to act as placeholders and reduce your need of dice during the game!
  • THE RETURN OF FREE CONTENT FRIDAY - We'll be unlocking 12 pieces of FREE CONTENT for the community in 2018 (launch date TBD)
  • SYRINSCAPE SOUNDSET - a Custom Soundset for our backers that is designed JUST for Outbreak: Undead
  • AN IMPROVED SPEW-AI 2.0 - We are going to strip down the SPEW-AI and make it even BETTER with even more Academic Credibility!
  • OUTBREAK: UNDEAD - PLAYER MAT! - Players can now keep track of their dice/resource/cards with this handy playermat, made from premium materials (either cloth or polyurethane)

Plus maybe a few other surprises we can't quite yet announce.... 

As the campaign progresses, we'll be sending updates about the progress of the book – as well as its various stretch goals. I can tell you we've already started progress on both the SPEW-AI as well as FREE CONTENT FRIDAY!

BACKERKIT - Late Pledgers

We'll be putting together the backerkit project for this campaign during the next 2 weeks. Anyone who didn't get a chance to GET IN on the campaign, or wants to change their pledge last minute - will be able to. More on that next update!

Well done Survivors. Take care - Prepare. We'll be in touch soon.

Less Than 16 Hours to go! - PLAYER MATS UNLOCKED~

Hello Survivors

We're in the HOME STRETCH! We've got only half a day left to unlock some PREMIUM STRETCH GOALS and get our SUPPLY CACHE backers the best bang for their buck!


Right now we've got PLAYER MATS unlocked. But at $60k we'll not only unlock the UPGRADE TO ACRYLIC TOKENS, but we'll also include T-SHIRTS in all our SUPPLY CACHE backers as well!

That's an additional $40 ($20 T-Shirt, $20 Tokens) worth of materials at no additional cost!

If we reach $65k - we'll include the SURVIVORS JOURNALS as well, this is a binder that will have card holders (for your reference cards), as well as handy pockets/sleeves for your character sheet and tokens!

So let's get these last few goals and drive this campaign home!

We've Passed $50k for Syrinscape - Player Mat Coming Up

What Does It Sound Like When Civilization Dies?

Hello Survivors, as we enter into the final hours of the Campaign we are excited to be able to announce that we have passed yet another threshold allowing us to work with the fine folks at Syrinscape to bring you an EXCLUSIVE Soundset to use with Outbreak: Undead!  With Syrinscape you'll be able to immerse your players ever further into the action with the inclusion of an audio element to your Scenarios.  Thanks to everyone for helping us achieve this milestone!

Still More Lurking in the Shadows

We're not done yet, and we have a lot of really cool content we'd love to be able to get out to you.  The first of these items is just around the corner at $55k with our first Premium Add-on of the Player Mat.  Think of this as the player equivalent of the Gamemaster's Screen, helping each Survivor keep track of all the important details as the Scenario progresses.  We've also got some more Premium Add-ons and additional Stretch Goals we can hit, so keep on sharing and spreading the word like your life depends on it (because as we all know, it just might)!

New Pledge Level Added - Play With Ivan

New Pledge Level - Play Outbreak on Roll20 with Ivan Van Norman  

You read that correctly. As we move through the final week of the Campaign we wanted to add on a new special pledge level for anyone interested. How would you like to play a custom scenario with our own master of horror and game designer, Ivan Van Norman? Well, now 5 lucky backers will be able to have that opportunity! Don't delay as spots in the session will be limited.

Keep it Going!

Well Survivors, what can we say, we are simply humbled by how far this project has come, but there is still more left to unlock.  We are a mere $1.5k away from unlocking the SYRINSCAPE SOUNDSET that will be available to all of our backers.  After that we have our first Premium Add-on to unlock in our PLAYER MAT at $55k (total) which will be available to anyone who wants to add it onto their pledge (or for free to anyone at Supply Cache and above).  Past those we have even more cool things in mind, so keep on sharing and get the word out to Survivors around the globe.

The Final Week... Has Arrived.
