Tower Defense, The Apocalypse, and YOU!
Tower defense games are games in which you have a limited amount or resources available to build towers to defend your safe space from waves of enemies. Each wave defeated gives way to a stronger wave and loot you can use to build more or upgrade existing towers. [Like real life, except with do-overs!] I […] http://dlvr.it/3LkMnX | In Case of Survival
Review: After the Ending by Lindsey Fairleigh and...
After the Ending by Lindsey Fairleigh and Lindsey Pogue is the first in The Ending Series. A post-apocalyptic book focusing on two women. The Virus spread. Billions died. The Ending began. We may have survived the apocalypse, but the Virus changed us. When people started getting sick, “they” thought it was just the flu. My […] http://dlvr.it/3KDdnp | In Case of Survival
But what will I drink in the post-apocalypse?
Apologies again for falling off the planet these past couple weeks. Things have been happening that have affected my ability to write (well, more like my ability to stay awake long enough to write). I’ll probably tell y’all about it someday. Maybe. Anyway. Back to the apocalypse. I’m convinced we’re going to put ourselves in […] http://dlvr.it/3Jg31f | In Case of Survival

Yes, I DO spend all my time online, why do you ask? Anyway, thanks to Tumblr, I discovered Lost Zombies, the social network for the zombie apocalypse. It’s basically a gigantic community for creating a massive zombocalypse documentary. Lost Zombies is a social network whose goal is to create the world’s first community generated zombie […] http://dlvr.it/3JRGYp | In Case of...
how instructables can help you survive
It is somewhat possible that computer games have given us an artificial idea of how it will be to live in a post-apocalyptic world. For a start, I sincerely doubt that 200 years post-event, there’ll still be pre-packaged snacks and good-condition guns hanging around. In fact, it’s likely those things will vanish pretty quickly. Which […] http://dlvr.it/3Ghymm | In Case of Survival
Where’s the ‘Run and Hide’ Button?
I’m watching Resident Evil: Retribution (That’s 5 for the uninitiated) and one of the Michelle Rodriguez characters is all sweet and innocent and doesn’t know how to hold a gun. So eventually bad ass Alice around again and teaches her to shoot a 30 second tutorial and gives her a child to protect. HUWAT?! Do you give […] http://dlvr.it/3GFcfS | In Case of Survival
They bombed my city and I’m scared….
I work in Boston’s Back Bay-Copley area. I had lunch with my bestie at Copley square last week and that spot between the two bombs is where you can usually find some great food trucks. Sugar Heaven, that candy store next to Marathon Sports where all the blood is staining the sidewalk, is where I […] http://dlvr.it/3FkY54 | In Case of Survival
The girls guide to post-apocalyptic dictatorship.
In the past, I have made a big deal about how in the post apocalypse, I WILL be a benevolent dictator in control of a large, well run compound. Some of you seem to seem to think I might be joking about this. Oh, no, sugarbuns. I fully intend to be a dictator. I’m already […] http://dlvr.it/3DzVkV | In Case of Survival
Interview with Dean Crawford. Plus, GIVEAWAY.
I reviewed Dean Crawford’s Apocalypse a little while back. It’s a good book, and I’d like to give one of our readers a chance to read it. Simply enter our giveaway for a chance to win a copy. Comment, share and like us for more chances. But first, read Dean’s thoughts about post-apocalyptic living. Hi […] http://dlvr.it/3CXBkH | In Case of Survival
The changing face of zombies.
Zombies are boring now. They’ve been done. Old news. I am no longer afraid of a zombie apocalypse, because everyone has a plan. Not only will we survive it, we’ll crush it. Zombies have already said everything they, as a horror monster, say about our fears and our culture – our panic about communicable infection, […] http://dlvr.it/3CCgkg | In Case of Survival

So you’re a survival camp dictator tyrant leader. Congrats! You’ve got a bunch of people looking to you to keep them alive (no pressure or anything).

In case you haven’t already figured it out (it probably wasn’t that hard though), my last post was an April Fool’s joke. Sadly, ICoS isn’t really building bunkers (but maybe some day!). Okay, so for real, I am back at ICoS (though I never really left). I may not get a post up every week, but […] http://dlvr.it/39LDgt | In Case of Survival

Hi everyone! It’s Char (remember me?). Apologies for my long absence (if you haven’t noticed I’ve been gone, I will throw you to the zombies, see if I don’t), but I’ve been away working on a super seekrit project for ICoS. I know none of you have even heard of this project, but that’s kinda […] http://dlvr.it/39Jxg1 | In Case of Survival
Zompire Apocalypse RPG
There’s a new online RPG shuffling our way, and it looks like it could be a hell of a lot of fun.

[PAX East] Deus Ex: Human Revolution DIRECTOR’S...
Deus Ex is back again, but mostly the same. However this director’s cut has some noticeable differences… Not because it’s the director’s cut and it comes with two additional missions though, that I wouldn’t say was all that noticeable. Square Enix is re-releasing Deus Ex on the WiiU and I have to say the experience […] http://dlvr.it/38Ntgk | In Case of Survival

Remember Me has been sneaking around in the background of the gaming world for some time not. It’s quite didn’t go unnoticed though, as the line to play at PAX East was 2 hours long at all times.

I am not a PC gamer; however, I loved playing Perfect World’s Neverwinter. I’m such a brat when it comes to all the menus and keyboard shortcuts. League of Legends was too confusing for me and that game is fairly straightforward (once I couldn’t figure out why none of my powers were working… I accidentally […] http://dlvr.it/38NZ4k | In Case of Survival
So, we’re two years old this month. I KNOW, right? If the site was a human being it’d be toddling around and breaking things. The main thing I’m surprised about is that the apocalypse HASN’T happened in that two years. I was so certain that I’d be dressed in oddly-stylish rags, scavenging the ruins of […] http://dlvr.it/37kMWM | In Case of Survival
World War Z Extended Trailer: “The more human...
There is no shambling in World War Z. There are hordes of super fast, single-minded zombies rushing anything that hasn’t yet been converted. It looks both terrifying and amazing. Also, it seems Brad Pitt is the only person in the whole world with the skills, intelligence, and dogged curiosity to solve this zombie problem—if it […] http://dlvr.it/37XXtk | In Case of Survival
I welcome our new Rat Overlords.
So, it turns out that if you put human braincells into rodents it makes them smarter. Thanks, science. Now I have to worry about super-intelligent rodents with a grudge against humanity, on top of everything else. OK, so the ‘smarter’ isn’t human level intelligence, and I’m sure some party-pooper who doesn’t understand the point of […] http://dlvr.it/34Fk0f | In Case of Survival

Tower Offense? Yes, Please; I’ll Take ANOMALY 2.
ANOMALY 2 from 11 bit studios is going to be available for demo at PAX East this weekend and I’m stoked! Why? Obviously, I’m for anything thing that leads with ”build war mechs,” but this glee is mainly because I’m a huge geek for tower defense games. Ninja Town is for real my favorite game. I lent it to my mom […] http://dlvr.it/33Kk9w | In Case of Survival
The Year of the Women of Armageddon [REVIEW]
Thanks to Tavia and the guys at ICoS for having me give my two penny’s worth on the Women of Armageddon 2013 calendar. I have been known to cast an appreciative eye over the female form in my time, so 12 months’ worth of post-apocalyptic ladies sounds right up my street. Does the calendar cut […] http://dlvr.it/331Rnp | In Case of Survival

Don't be Fat... Or Do. →
This isn’t about how I saw some obese person in the mall and thought to myself, “I’d never want a fat person in my apocalypse party because they’ll ruin everything. No, this is about me being a chunk monster and realizing that I’m at a huge disadvantage and might want to either do something about it or look it in the eye and acknowledge it while planning my survival.

Kill ‘em With Kindness
Sometimes my fellow, future post-apocalyptic queens and I like to daydream together about what our ideal post-apocalyptic world will be like. We plan to run the post-apocalyptic world not through strong-arming communities out of their supplies but through kindness. This world often involves copious amounts of moisturizer, rum, and POWER. Some people will argue that kindness doesn’t go hand...
Thinking of proposing? There's an app for that →
Okay, so, confession time: I dislike Valentine’s Day. Probably because I spent way too many of them single (well, before I got married). Back then, I used to think of myself as a hopeless romantic. Sometime in the last decade I realized I was just hopeless. Ironically, when I owned up to that, I met my now-husband. (I guess there’s something to be said for that be-true-to-yourself stuff, hey?)...

Halo 4, like many Halo games before it, is filled with multiplayer modes and options. Recently I was looking for some online fun for one… I’ll wait for the giggles to calm down.
