Zombie Exodus is a thrilling, 750,000-word survival horror written by the talented Jim Dattilo. Most recently, the author was featured in our interactive fiction spotlight for Vampire: The Masquerade—Out For Blood.

This zombie thriller was one of Dattilo’s first forays into interactive fiction, and it absolutely kicks ass. It was written under the Choice of Games/Hosted Games label, and is easily one of their best novels. Period.

Zombie Exodus was originally released in 2011, but still holds up well today. It’s hands-down one of the best zombie literature, period.
