Dangerous Fellows (2018)- LucyDream

Cost: FREE

A sudden outbreak of an unknown virus has destroyed the entire world.
Most of the people has turned into horrendous, blood-seeking zombies……….

As I was trying to escape from a deadly attack by the zombie,
I was miraculously saved by some strangers-five attractive fellows.

They’ve been concealing themselves safely in a school building with other survivors.

……But, is this place really safe for us?

Can we all survive from this bizarre catastrophe?

Find out the shocking ending of a romance thriller
that you’ve never experienced before!

Synopsis (Game Site)

Dangerous Fellows is a free to play supernatural fantasy mobile game from Korean developer LucyDream. There are five male love interests to choose from: Harry, Zion, Lawrence, Eugene, and Ethan. Like most free to play games, players need Rubies and Story Tickets for advancing the story, for making premium choices that unlock special scenes between you and your chosen love interest, and for purchasing items. You can also collect puzzle pieces to unlock memories that reveal more about the story. There are a handful of additional features such as dressing up your in-game MC avatar, giving gifts to love interests, and helping repair the school.
