"You take the role of dully named Adam Collins, an ordinary chap turned freaked-out survivor in I Am Alive and general saviour of the city's population. The obvious advantage of having an everyman in a starring role, of course, is we'll have to see how far he'll be pushed by these nightmare circumstances. Adam isn't alone in his messiahlike folk-hero antics, as he's surrounded by a cast of well-raised do-gooders, including an ex-soldier, a female doctor (they do those? Arf!) and a wheelchair-bound fireman. Together, this party of people do their best to survive in Chicago, bringing survivors to their camp and avoiding the warring factions that have a chokehold on the city."
