there has to a trope for this, somewhere on the site... being the last man on the earth.
Actually, you wouldn't know that for sure, although it is implied. Like I said, the city is SO well maintained, almost to those tourism advertisements picture, complete with blue sky and buildings with shiny windows and everything.
at first your character might find it refreshing or relaxing.
The thing is, Walker acts as if there's absolutely nothing wrong. I think I will start the story by having him wake up in a Saturday morning and have him walk around, shopping. He goes to supermarket, pays the money, goes to restaurant and order some food (Sandwich for lunch, spaghetti for dinner
), goes into a very empty library to read/check out some books, and going for a walk in a dark, quiet, and absolutely empty park. It's as if he has been doing this for a long time and just got accustomed to it. Oh, and by empty, I mean not even wild animals like squirrels, pidgeons, and whathaveyou.
I guess the only horror aspects are small things that seem out of ordinary, like a book suddenly dropping from a bookshelf, a wheelchair in a hospital with its wheels still spinning, swings that slightly swing by themselves...
It's something of a Mind Screw
-ish work, I assume it would be.
