Synopsis

WHEN HUNGER CAME...

It began simply enough when as Asiatic virus destroyed the grass and grain supply of the entire world. A mass slaughter began as nations murdered their own citizens so that some might live.

Excerpt

Ann pointed the rifle. The man cried, "No—I've got kids! You can't. It's a murder."

Ann's voice was flat. "I swore to myself that I would kill you if I got the chance."

He stared up at her, and was still staring when the bullets began tearing through his body.

MURDER IS THE ONLY RULE OF PLAY; THE STAKES: CIVILZATION'S FUTURE!
