Escape From Lab 42 is a coffeebreak roguelike



Escape From Lab 42 is a Seven Day Roguelike written by Rick Clark for the 2009 7DRL Challenge.

In Escape From Lab 42, you are the sole survivor of a virus outbreak that has turned everyone in a top secret government lab into zombies. While herding zombies into one of the testing facilities, you were bitten by a zombie, rushed to the medlab, injected with the anti-virus and put under sedation. When you woke up, you realized that you were the only one not a zombie.

When the outbreak occurred, the main computer system activated the self-destruct sequence leaving you only 30 minutes to escape the lab. To further complicate matters, each level elevator has been locked out, requiring you to find the access code before you can enter the elevator.
