Hope

NO ZOMBIE IS PERFECT

A senseless wandering ghoul roaming the world full of the hunger-less undead and hateful humans will soon discover a craving, leaving him completely and utterly without hope.

After a mysterious disease struck society, poor Karl became one of the many outcasts in the modern world like the rest of his kind. While most folks went about their everyday lives, eventually accepting and ignoring the timid zombies themselves, those who became hostile towards the infected faced no consequences. That is until... all of hope was gone.
