Zombie Cure Lab – Reverse The Apocalypse

The zombie apocalypse is a tried and true genre with most of the games situated around survivors killing zombies and staying alive. But what if we went in another direction and instead of killing zombies we’re curing them instead? In Zombie Cure Lab you and your team of heroic scientists attempt to save the world from the zombie apocalypse. Not with guns but with science and time and resource management. If you like games such as Two Point Hospital then this one is right up your alley.

Zombie Cure Lab is very different from every other zombie-focused game on the market,” said Maarten Janello, Product Manager at Aerosoft. “The adventure is colourful and charming, but demanding survival gameplay comes from a world-changing objective—to not just weather the night, but capture and cure your attackers. We hope this subversive take on the genre and zombie lore entertains diehard strategy fans and zombie enthusiasts alike.”

Zombie Cure Lab is being developed by Thera Bytes and published by Aerosoft. It will be coming to Steam Early Access for PC on the 7th of December 2022.


Build A Lab, Save The World

Command a colony of heroic scientists on a quest to restore the world. Start the adventure by gathering natural resources in the woodlands and summits. Prepare for the first night with fortifications and a rudimentary base, giving the scientists just enough stability and defence to stay alive. With a foothold established, set traps for the zombies and attempt to snag one. Take it back to the lab and attempt to reverse the infection.

Build a stable, zombie-proof base and get to work on the latest in capturing and healing technology to turn nighttime attackers into your very own lab assistants. Maintain their happiness with comfortable living conditions to prevent them from regressing to their brain-thirsty tendencies. Build your skill tree, unlock more research skills, and fully cure the zombie horde!


Lab Management Will Reverse The Apocalypse

Manage the workforce, both original scientists and newly converted human-zombie hybrids alike, to keep them happy and hearty, ready to research and work. Set up kitchens, recreational spaces, and other creature comforts. Research and unlock sci-fi tech like freeze rays and barriers to capture more zombies. Expand the lab’s manpower and resources to rewind history and save all of mankind. With time, meticulous planning, and precise management, the undead hordes will soon become the Working Dead. But stay vigilant, as Humbies are unpredictable. Go above and beyond their basic needs, lest their primal, flesh-eating instincts claw back to the surface.

To build your defences, you’ll have to gather resources, set day and night shifts and manage four different worker types. You’ll also have to prioritize and assign jobs within your lab to maximize your research efficiency. Remember, cures don’t get made overnight. Then there’s always the question of keeping the power running in your lab.

And let’s not forget that there’s a virus out there that will turn your workers into brain-munching zombies, so you’ll have to keep an eye out for possible outbreaks.
