BrainBread is a co-op modification for Half-Life Developed by Iron Oak development team and announced on 16th October 2004.
An arsenal of over 20 weapons makes sure you stand a chance of surviving against the zombie hordes - even if it's but a small one. Are you afraid of being killed by a zombie? One thing is worse: becoming one of them! Avoid getting bitten by those bastards. The Army is your only ally. AI based tanks, helicopters and soldiers will bring great AI against AI fights onto the streets!
My name is Matt Winston. I'm a 22 years old student, making a living with working in the shopping mall of Heaven's Gate. My family moved up north, I stayed because of my studies. I live in a room in a house owned by friends of my parents. In my spare time I used to go to the beach with my friend Shorty and enjoyed live at its best: sun, fun and nothing to do. Yes, life was good. Until today...
30th of January is a day to remember: the day of change. It was in the early morning when the chaos started: roaming hordes of bloodthirsty men ran through the city, killing everybody at sight. There were rumours about an army experiment and problems with the nuclear reactor. By 12 a.m., half of the city's population was part of the cannibal horde, about a thousand were killed in car accidents and by gunshots from personal firearms. U.S. Army forces moved into the city to rescue as many as possible. They soon had to realize that the only way to stop the cannibal hordes was to shoot them. Tanks entered the city and killed hundreds. At the same time Black Hawk squads searched for survivors. Survivors like you...
Do you know how to pronounce "extraordinaire"? You won't learn that in BB... but BB will teach you the meaning of it!
This is what you become if you're not careful. Once been bitten, the countdown starts. After 2 minutes you will be one of them. You can only hope that one of your friends shoots you before that happens. It would be the better solution for both of you...
Once civilized and intelligent human beings, they are now nothing more than animals searching for prey. You will find them everywhere and if not: they will find you. They are very resistant against any sort of violence, but a hit in the head takes them down instantly. Their bodys are so rotten that even a 9mm bullet may seperate body parts. Make use of this advantage: a zombie without any arms can't do a lot of damage!
