Decision: Red Daze Revealed

Developer FlyAnvil and publisher Nordcurrent announce Decision: Red Daze, an upcoming fifth installment in the Decision series that began back in the days of Flash. This action/RPG with tower defense elements is expected on Steam early next year. This teaser trailer shows off some gameplay and this video offers an extended look with developer commentary. Here are some decisive details:
Decision: Red Daze is an isometric action RPG with a unique mix of survival and tower defense mechanics. As the Red Daze engulfs the continent, leaving destruction and horribly mutated monsters in its wake, survivors are the only glimmer of hope the human race has. As the leader of a settlement, you must find these people and recruit them in order to clear the Earth from this dangerous disease. Feel the adrenaline rush fighting back hordes of horrible zombies, mutants, and other deadly creatures that will try to kill you at sight, explore the world in search of new allies, find and upgrade deadly weapons, craft increasingly powerful defense mechanisms to keep your settlements safe. Don’t low your guard, danger is never far away.

The Red Daze, a nightmarish disease that turns people into mutated monsters, has taken hold of the wasteland known as the Dust Bowl -- and the blistering heat and dust is making the disease airborne, threatening to engulf the whole continent in it. This illness has shaped the world and human history for millennia; with the governments and world powers constantly at each other’s throat, fending off the mutants and zombies and searching for a way to stop the propagation of the Red Daze falls in the hands of groups of survivors, soldiers and scientists. You are one of them: the last man standing of a unit from the militia known as the Bears. A group of survivors saved you after your whole unit was slaughtered in the Dust Bowl. You joined their ranks, offering your combat experience, knowledge of tactics, and leadership skills. Your mission consists of building a safe haven and defending it -- but also to venture into the Dust Bowl, fighting mutants and zombies to find and recruit more survivors. Maybe you will find a way to push the Red Daze back.

Sometimes, the future of the entire human race rests in one man’s hands. This time, it might be yours.
