2016. They were trying to cure a deadly disease with a nano-bot technology, but the artificial intelligence in the nano-bots evolved, creating a virus. When the creators tried to use the kill-code to stop it, the nano-bot virus mutated further so the kill-code was useless. The virus killed off its hosts, the entire lab dying within 24 hours. Before people began dying, a few scientists left the lab. When the government found out what was happening, they put the entire country on lock down. They thought they had cleared out all traces of the virus, reopening the borders. A few years later, people began...changing. They became cannibalistic, their brain shutting down certain parts such as memory and common sense, and a lot of their intelligence. They were crazy, reckless, and highly dangerous. At first, everyone thought it was a new disease, but when the doctors found it was the nano-bot virus that had been thought to be wiped out, they immediately told non-infected to stay away from anyone that seemed sick in any way. As winter set in, infection rates slowed, but most of the world was already dead or infected. 2020. Half of the world was dead and most of the other half infected.

They go about the pace of a crawling baby, they tend to target people. They are colorblind, they can smell people, they have very good hearing. BIOS- These will be found mostly near labs, nuclear plants, power plants, factories, pretty much anywhere were toxic waste can be found. The usual side-effects are just that they become faster, some can even run, but some, though rare, can scream at high pitches, and very, very few regain the ability to see color. These are more dangerous, as they tend to target anything that moves on it's own. They'll attack a flag if it's moving, or a shirt, or a cat, or dog, or a person. Anything that moves on it's own. Those are the only two types for now. Regular Infected will be 90% of what you'll see for now, Bios aren't seen that often because of the specific conditions that have to be for them to survive in.
