I Shall Remain (ISR) is a top-down view zombie survival game that pits the last remnants of the Marine Corps against infected hordes. ISR is releasing new content through Desura’s Alpha funding platform that includes a lengthy survival map, a remastered campaign mission, reinvigorated graphics, SFX, teammate AI and a new defense-building aspect.
ISR takes place in circa 1945 North Eastern United States and tells the story of a memory-impaired Marine named Michael who wakes up after a horrendous firefight in a small settlement of survivors. Michael must fight to gain their trust and then lead them in the fight against the infected in humanity’s last stand.
Desura’s Alpha funding platform allows players access to earlier builds of the game and helps fund game development. ISR will use it to develop drivable vehicles, a multiplayer platform and a Linux build. ISR’s Alpha release was submitted on July 3, 2012 to Desura and will be available as soon as it is processed by the Desura.com staff. The game is a lean 333mb download and will be priced at around ten dollars.
The mastermind behind the game is 23-year old Marine Sergeant Jacob Way who started work on the game while deployed overseas back in 2010. Way’s expectations for the game are high after seeing its demo’s success earlier this year. So far, the demo has been delivered to players in more than 50 countries and has been getting very strong feedback. This early demo is available now on Desura and is a free download.
