Set in post-9/11 Afghanistan, The Corridor is Pakistan's first interactive horror novella that combines audio, visual and text-based content to narrate the story of an American defense contractor, Alan Baker, and a young Afghan girl, Maha Gul Afridi, who find themselves stranded in a remote, zombie-infested valley in the Badakhshan province of Afghanistan. Alan is a former US Army soldier who is dispatched to Afghanistan, with a team of private security contractors, to capture a notorious Taliban commander with a large bounty on his head.
