They Rise is the title of a tertiary project based on the design of Ultimate Showdown. Unlike Ultimate Showdown or Amalgam Online, however, characters featured in They Rise are in fact actual, living, breathing people whom he has met or had contact with over the course of his lifetime. In fact, only one character exists in-game who is not based upon a live person (or a zombie from a media source, which feature as easter eggs): Zarysh, the leader of the Antithesis. However, it can be speculated that beneath his mysterious robes, he too may be an actual individual...
Somarinoa is a zombie movie fanatic. He has written a couple of scripts for zombie films but none have panned out, mostly because of a lack of making time to appear in the film by his friends, which each part was specifically written for. When one friend died and several moved out of state, he decided to switch over to a game instead, which became known as They Rise.
