Story and Worldview
Step back in time to the year 1854, during Japan’s Edo period, where Japan finds itself in a state of isolation. Meanwhile, Western nations are going through a technological and labor revolution known as the “Zombie Industrial Revolution.” Because of this, the countries search for new territories, with power that surpasses Japan’s capabilities.
The arrival of the Black Ships in Japan changes everything, demanding the country to open to the outside world. This leads to a devastating zombie invasion. Moreover, the infected zombies multiply rapidly, and the epidemic spreads throughout the city of Edo.
Amidst this chaos, a group of extraordinary individuals emerges—people with mysterious powers. They are only known through rumors and are called the “Zom-beings” because the zombie curse doesn’t affect them. Now, the three “Zom-beings” must eradicate the zombies. As well as restoring Japan to its pre-colonial state before it opened its doors to the outside world.
Ed-0: Zombie Uprising takes players to the Edo era of Japan, overrun by millions of zombies. Assume the role of a Samurai, Sumo Wrestler, or Ninja, and fight against the overwhelming hordes of the undead. Gather valuable items and acquire new skills in randomly generated dungeons. Ensuring a unique experience every time. Brace yourself for challenging encounters, as these dungeons are far from forgiving. Every run demands your attention as you fight on the edge of death to survive.
Prepare for an abundance of surprises and face unpredictable adversaries as you grow stronger and strive for greatness. Every run presents new and extraordinary challenges amidst the sea of zombies, where your judgment as a player becomes crucial for success.
