Apocalypse Rising is a post-apocalyptic zombie survival game, set in an area containing three large cities and several outlying clusters of buildings. Players in Apocalypse Rising spawn somewhere around the map's edges and are left to find food, weapons, and shelter from the surrounding zombies. Players have the ability to obtain primary weapons such as the Lee Enfield Rifle or the Mk 48 LMG as well as secondary weapons such as the Makarov and USP-45. Players also must fight hunger and thirst which quickly deteriorates and is required to be replenished.

Upon death in Apocalypse Rising, a player drops their entire inventory which can then be picked up by another player. The user then spawns somewhere in the map again, and must start over from scratch.

On June 3, 2013, Gusmanak announced that they are finished with Roblox's engine and are no longer updating their, but they will stay behind for needed bugfixes. Gusmanak made all of his models that are found in the game free and also announced that he and ZolarKeth will move on to work on the Unity game engine.

Though, since the release of the Developer Exchange, in which you can convert ROBUX into real money, Gusmanak and ZolarKeth took a break from Strive to work on more ROBLOX games apart from Apocalypse Rising. One of which is the Apocalypse Games. This game includes small chunks of the Apocalypse Rising world, and a various amounts of game types. Players earn Research Points and Credits, in which they can buy new weapons and new clothing for their characters.
