Settlers of K'tah is a medieval themed turn based video game for 2-4 players. Players can collect resources, build outposts to expand their kingdom, and attack other players' kingdoms. There is also an AI zombie "player" that works against all players, prevents resource collection, and attacks kingdoms. Players can win by being the last surviving player, by defeating the zombies in battle, or by curing the zombie plague with research. The game also includes a third person mini-game where a single player plays as a knight and engages in combat with zombies. The team includes two programmers, two animators, an asset assister, and a musical composer.
