The main healing item, as well as health upgrades, are large syringes full of an unknown substance that the main character injects himself with.

Matches are a game mechanic. A downed enemy may be set on fire, killing them, as well as any nearby enemies caught in the blaze.
Storywise, a building is burned with two children inside. While one survives, the other is not as fortunate. The main character witnesses this event firsthand from inside the building during a flashback sequence

A "finisher attack" is to stomp the heads of the enemy zombies.

A child is left to die in a burning building. You bear witness to this firsthand during a flashback sequence.

The main character's spouse and child are mentioned to have died before the events of the game, with some optional collectibles going into further detail about the events leading up to their deaths.

At several points during the game, characters begin to lose control of themselves and attack each other. The first enemy in the game is a minor character who has turned completely and cannot be saved.

This game has some very intense light effects. There are sudden and numerous changes from very dark to very bright environments.

Two of the characters, siblings, are very close together. A character mentions it "may delve into incestuous levels of obsession", but the game refutes this claim.

The game is quite gory, with a particularly heavy focus on brains and brain surgery/mutilation.
