The world ended on October the seventh, 2011. Not with a bang, as some theorists predicted, but with a whimper. There was no fruition of a Mayan prophecy, no alien attack, no terrorist uprising, and no supervolcano eruption. It was a simple virus that finished mankind off; a superflu that couldn't be cured once it had been contracted.

Hamsterdamned! is the action-packed and comical tale of gigantic rodents and sex-midgets, of one-legged prostitutes and inept Dutch policemen, of camaraderie and one man's fight to stay alive so he can marry the woman of his dreams.

The world as we know it ended on October 7th, 2011. There were few survivors as the virus spread to the four corners of the Earth.

Shane and the rest of the survivors can't live off the museum forever. The food is almost gone; madness is beginning to set in. It's time to go outside, to search for some kind of life, to survive as best they can for as long as possible.

Los Angeles, the City of Angels. At least, that's what the brochure says. What it fails to mention is the earthquakes.
