The year was 2033. On October 23 a meteor struck the Earths surface on the outskirts of a small town. Shortly after the towns inhabitants began to show strange signs of violent and odd behavior towards one another. They became the first to be infected, becoming cannibalistic towards everyone, and no one could explain why. The government had tried to step in and cover up the infection and the small town, but it had already begun spreading like wildfire, first through the country and then the world. People panicked and turned on one another, killing for something as simple as an energy drink. Entire nations were thrown into chaos, soon becoming nothing but shells of what they once were, rubble and dust of a world once full of life and love. Scientists had banded together to stop the alien disease but when they had started working with a stable sample of the infection, they themselves became infected, and the world was lost in a dark future. In an Apocalyptic Hunger. The year is now 2036, three years after Lucifer's Shard - the meteor - had entered the Earth's atmosphere. People had come to call that day October's calling, a time a pain and sorrow. The Starved - those infected by Lucifer's Shard - have grown immensely in numbers, far beyond the pure - people who are not infected - and are roaming through cities freely, looking for flesh. Though infected, The Starved have not lost their will to think, in fact they are as smart as they were before being infected, or even more so. They have grown even more ravenous for the taste of human flesh, and will stop at nothing to acquire it. Your job. Survive at all costs.
