Life in the HDB heartlands of Singapore can be a real bitch. Especially when everyone out there wants to eat your flesh. It's 28 days - or at least we think it's 28 - after the zombie apocalypse. This is Jim: Ghim Moh resident, undergraduate and apocalypse survivor. Sanctuary is waiting in that hipster district they call Tiong Bahru, but there are are five million very hungry meat munchers in the way. And all he's got to fend them off is his parang (machete) and a backpack. Sure, there's Selina the crazy girl with the tattos and Raj the law graduate to help out. But it doesn't mean they cant get infected. Welcome to the brand new city state of Singapore, where meat munchers and wayangs roam the land, and you'd better have a weapon ready. After all, when there's no more government to complain to, survival is your own problem.
