The story according to the oracle that is Wikipedia is:
Escape Dead Island is a survival mystery that follows the story of Cliff Calo, who sets sail to document the unexplained events rumored to have happened on Banoi. Arriving on the island of Narapela, part of the Banoi archipelago, he finds that not everything is as it seems. Haunted by deja-vus, Cliff will have to make sense of it all. This story-driven adventure lets players delve into the Dead Island universe and unravel the origins of the zombie outbreak. Escape is only the beginning…
So if you’re looking to quench your Dead Island thirst until Dead Island 2 rocks up on PS4 and Xbox One next spring this might be worth a look.
