Age: 25-49 The approximate average age of the average homeowner.

Narrative Hook & Involvement
The player plays as the head of a household and a member of a family. The goal is to keep the family safe. Also, the game surrounds those looking at different home defense options–with an emphasis on firearms as the option.
Shows the pros/cons of different means of self-defense, such as firearms, a baseball bat, or fisticuffs and likelihood of survival and safety with all of them.
But it’s a highly controversial topic, which I’m sure will cause a number to become disinterested immediately due to the subject matter.
Apocalypse: Disaster Zone
Premise: The world is ending. Fire falls from the skies like rain. Get out of New York while you still can.
Happy Fun Ville
Premise: The clowns of this nuclear fallout town are oh-so happy to meet, greet, and eat you!
Upon Dry Ground
Premise: The world has been without water for years. That which does exist is manufactured in a lab. Every so often, a group goes out in search of water and must fend off any creature that they encounter.
Kimberly: The narrative can be hard to follow at times, but I think I see some elements of Hamlet in there somewhere. But it’s still recognizable as a Rumpelstiltskin story.
Lex: I am a big fan of both the Disney version and the original Hans Christian Andersen version. Unfortunately, it feels incomplete. There’s a lot of untouched mythology here. I see this as a good start, but a mermaid swimming to the surface, singing, and then swimming back down is a tale that’s been told over and over again. Unfortunately, I see nothing all that new or exciting.
