Currently the Moon boasts just over 33,000 residents. It also processes hundreds of immigrants heading to the recently established colony on Mars. Most of the lunar population is centered around the colony of Apollo. However, two other large colonies exist at the polar ice caps, taking full advantage of the sunlight available.

The game takes place on the Apollo Mining Colony, which has been cut off of contact from the outside world by a Solar Flare. Many of its civilians have become infected by a mysterious virus and mutated into Zombies. The UGC has sent in an expeditionary team to investigate...
