Dead and Back is a game of survival in the face of the supernatural. It uses a dice pool system of resolution, a wound chart tracking how quickly you can run, and lets you push yourself to the limit - at the risk of turning on the other survivors. Combat is based on the power of your weapon versus the resistance of the enemy. Single zombies will go down with one or two shots, but there are rules for entire hordes as well. Furthermore, a simple set of guidelines are in place for designing your own creatures and running horror in general.
