ZERØ is an RTS/RPG hybrid game set in a post-apocalyptic future, where warring gangs of survivors battle over the remnants of civilisation. You take the role of leader of such a gang, eking out a living in the barren wastes. To keep your gang alive, you'll need to scavenge for loot amid the ruins or complete missions for the inhabitants of the few remaining outposts.
