Urban Strife - Hands-on!

"There's something happening here

This is one Turn-based RPG I look forward to playing when its content complete. I also enjoyed Dead State which is an inspiration for this game. See I do play TB games.

Also yes zombies are probably cliche at this point but Zombie RPGs aren't.
