Five years ago the world was forever changed.Multiple reports of Intermittent Explosive Disorder Syndrome (IEDS) began to surface from an undisclosed military installation east of Las Vegas, Nevada.
Three days later, an angered Florida man entered a Miami assisted living facility and killed four elderly residents. He is said to have “Eaten the faces and necks” of his victims.
Within fifteen days, the death toll attributed to the mysterious outbreak of IEDS climbed to nearly five thousand. News outlets tried to warn the public “Not to panic”, and that these “Random occurrences” were simply “Isolated events.”
They were wrong.
Within days, the media claimed that the virus had spread to nearly every corner of the planet.
The infection took hold quickly. Millions perished. The devastation was almost immediate. Law enforcement fell, utilities powered down, and civilization was irreversibly shattered. With no structure left in the world, the remaining few sought to band together to fight and survive in this new existence.
That was five years ago … although not much has changed since that fateful day. There was hope, however fleeting, when three years ago a cure was believed to have finally been found. However, the virus inexplicably began to mutate. The infected now turned much quicker, sometimes within minutes, and their new ravenous hunger was only surpassed by their voracious thirst for violence and their increasing detachment from physical stimuli.
The world was again different, and those left behind were forced to adapt. They created settlements, planted crops, and began to understand how to harness the power of the sun. It was slow, but it was something. It was progress, even if it seemed like all they did was eat, sleep, and battle the dead.
Things may never get back to the way they once were, but for those who remained, just the hope of a better life was sometimes their only motivation. And although it was far from perfect, they weren’t about to give up.
The Dead Years – New Dawn follows Mason Thomas, as he and a small group of survivors fight to stay alive at the end of the world.
This is their story …
