Z. Year One


Early Access currently does NOT include the complete experience or feature set. Please take that into consideration before purchasing the game.

Z. Year One is a crowd-funded zombie card game brought to life by indie developer Downward Viral and over 1500 Kickstarter backers.

“Z. feels like you and your opponent are making your own awesome zombie movie each time you play.” –Gen Con playtester

Two Asymmetrical Factions:

  • Survivors
    Search locations for supplies and use an assortment of unique items, armor, and weapons to survive one more night!
  • The Fallen
    Sabotage locations, lay traps, convert Survivors into more Fallen, or just eat them alive!

We’ve really tried to work the zombie theme seamlessly into the gameplay and presentation, rather than just cloning other card games and slapping zombies on top. Our commitment to this is one of the things players have said they enjoyed the most.

Note: Z. is currently in-development and may include placeholder audio/visuals, bugs, and incomplete content. We’re working around the clock each day to turn out a polished final release. Some features may change before v1.0 depending on testing and player feedback.
