About game


In Urban Strife you lead a team of makeshift, slightly deranged rangers in an effort to keep the small community of Urban alive, amidst a zombie pandemic. With what’s left of human civilization divided into factions fighting over the scraps, you will need to broker alliances and fight factions wars, fortify and rebuild your community and forge a future against the ever-present threat of the zombie horde.

Proceed with care and stealth and eliminate your targets one by one or blast away with shotguns and machine guns that mow entire hordes of zombies at once. Lure unsuspecting AI enemies into noise traps and knock them out cold from the shadows. Blow their cover with explosives and Molotovs, snipe them silently with silenced pistols and crossbows or get your hands on rare .50 BMG anti-material rifle and knock their door (and half the wall) down.


Your story begins in the fictional county of Urban, a small community somewhere in the American south, two years after an extinction level viral pandemic almost wiped out the human race. The few surviving pockets of humanity are fighting a losing battle, barricaded behind makeshift walls, with dwindling supplies and hope.

This is when you begin to play your part. You’re rescued half dead and nursed back to life by the kind people of Urban Shelter but it soon becomes clear you’ve not arrived at the best of times. The survivors are frightened, weak and either very old or very young. They need a bold hero desperately to break out of the cold embrace of death outside their walls. Are you their savior? Or their worst mistake? Come to Urban and discover yourself!


We created a world that lives and reacts to your story. Not only you will have a branching dialogue system at your disposal to influence those you meet, but your actions will change the entire face of the game. Urban itself will transform under your eyes, for good or for worse. Your reputation will spread wide and far and follow you on every interaction with the NPCs. And while the residents of Urban will help your ragtag band of rangers in your mission, expect them to give you a less than enthusiastic welcome if the food has run out and the water reserves are dry.

If you want a bit of peace and quiet, sitting around smoking “medicinal” plants from your hydroponics room won’t be the enough. You will need to go out and make strong allies and they will give you access to unique materials, weapons and recruitable NPCs. The cultists want everyone to adopt the zombies as the children of God. The bikers want to spent the last days on Earth swimming in booze, drugs and sin. And the rebel Army garrison will keep the world safe from zombies,  nomads, criminals, cultists and everyone else who isn’t up to date with the protection money.

Quite a choice of friends! Enjoy…


The town center of Urban has been devastated in the first days of the apocalypse. You need to fix the city radio, reopen the local hospital, clean up the auto shop, retool the workshop, see about a permanent barracks for  the team and then you’ve just started. There are gardens to plant, rat farms and frog ponds to establish, training facilities to arrange and dozens other upgrades  to add.

Craft special dum-dum ammo to stop the hordes, tweak your weapons with attachments, build new parts and discover new recipes to combine into useful items. Loot the corpses of your enemies, scavenge resources from the abandoned houses and trade items with faction dealers. Explore the world by foot, by car or delve into a dark network of subway tunnels. And do it in style, with your very own custom zombie-proof SUV, built from scrap with your own hands.
