You've learned little about the coming apocalypse from popular culture and are therefore equipped with few of the strategies for survival such books, films and games simulate. If you are lucky you'll go out in the first cataclysmic wave because you are not built for life at the end of the world!


You've seen enough of the apocalypse on pages and screens to give you a fighting chance at the end of the world. Finding shelter, food, water and weapons in the early days of Armageddon shouldn't be too much of a stretch for you - especially if you gather in like-minded groups. Long term, however, do you really have what it takes to endure in a life after this one?


The apocalypse? What apocalypse? This is what you've been waiting for your whole life. No scrabbling around in the dust and starving for you. No gathering in groups for sustenance and safety. Grab your leathers, saw off your shotgun and appropriate an abandoned sports car. You own the end of the world!
