Survival of the Able

About Survival of the Able

The Black Death has come to your village. Everywhere around you people are succumbing to the plague. Quarantines are doing little to stem the tide of decay that is coming your way. Worst of all, you and the others in your almshouse have been left to fend for yourselves.

Oh, and did we mention plague victims are rising as zombies?

In Survival of the Able you’re a disabled person living in a European almshouse when the Black Death comes to your town. Little is known about where the plague originated or how to stop it, but those who die from it are rising again—and they’re hungry for flesh. Since everyone else has succumb to the plague, it’s up to a handful of you to make your way out of town and away to safety.

In this game, you will:

  • Play a character with a disability who lives in Medieval Europe.
  • Encounter challenges such as disease, zombies, burning buildings, terrible weather, fatigue, and stress.
  • Experience discrimination based on your disability, fear that you might have the plague, or both.
  • Overcome incredible challenges against all odds, despite your disability. You probably won’t get much credit for your achievements, but at least you won’t be dead.
  • Unless you do die, in which case you may turn into a zombie and try to eat your friends.


The Survival of the Able SRD is coming soon.
