Survival instincts kick in as the last remaining members of the group make a mad dash for the helicopter that offers the last ray of hope.

This song is something of a jumble, but will always be near and dear to my heart. It was the first chiptune I ever wrote, and while the mechanics of it have come a long way, the structure is generally the same. It was originally an instrumental piece I had hopes of recording with live instruments called Fall of Angmar, but when I was experimenting with chiptunes I used the riffing as a base and it became the song it is now. I hadn’t intended to write zombie-flavored chips, but the experimenting combined with having been playing Twilight Creations’ Zombies!!! Board game, I was inspired initially, and the rest just followed suit. I tried to extend this track and revamp it several times over, but each iteration just felt tacked on and lackluster, so I decided it was best as it was and had to leave it alone before I scrapped it altogether.
