RIZN takes place in a post-apocalyptic world where the R1Z-N virus has turned the entire population into the walking dead. You'll take control of a character recently bitten and infected with this plague and must shoot your way through large hordes of the undead in an effort to survive.

Along the way, you'll need to craft injections to stave off infection long enough to locate and use research stations to find a cure. With a heavy focus on cartoon gore and a thin veil of comic relief, RIZN relies heavily on the physics engine to create crazy and exaggerated results for headshots, explosions, and more.

Game Modes

Story - Choose one of two characters and experience their unique story as told through a graphic novel. Stave off infection long enough and you may just survive this apocalypse.

Survival - Make your way through randomly generated quarantine zones with the only goal being to survive as long as you possibly can. No story, no respawns, no mercy.

Horde - Survive wave after wave of rizn - each more challenging than the next - for as long as you can.

Circus - Enjoy a dose of stress relief in the form of confetti-filled clowns with heads that pop like balloons.

Pre order placed 
stoked to support you


Can't thank you enough for the support! After two and a half years of solo work, it feels incredible to have sold a copy. Thanks so much!


I told you about 10 or so months ago when I stumbled on your youtube I would pre order as soon as it was ready :D 

Is this going on steam as well?


No plans for Steam at the moment, I like Itch and will favor keeping things simple for now. If all goes well then consoles are more likely, but I may reconsider Steam in the future.


My brother and a few other friends are following as well hopefully they grab a copy :D


That's great to hear, any support is appreciated, be that pre-orders or followers. :)
