In a world where most of humanity are either dead or diseased flesh-craving monster, Dead of Winter puts 2-5 players together in a small, weakened colony of survivors. Each player leads a faction of survivors with dozens of different characters to choose from.
Dead of Winter is a meta-cooperative psychological survival game. Players must work together toward one common victory condition--but each individual player must also complete their personal secret objective. This secret objective could relate to a psychological tick that's fairly harmless to most others in the colony, a dangerous obsession that could put the main objective at risk, a desire for sabotage of the main mission, or worst of all: vengeance against the colony! Certain games could end with all players winning, some winning and some losing, or all players losing. Work toward the group's goal but don't get walked all over by a loudmouth who's only looking out for their own interests!
