Dear Jenny,

I don't know where you are but write you this letter in the hope that you might return home.

Water and food supplies are running low and I have to leave Riverlake. I haven't slept in what seems like ages - I try and shut my eyes but I keep hearing strange noises outside.

The streets echo with desperate screams and it's too dangerous to be out for long. There are crazy people running around, attacking anyone in sight - it's like they are infected with some sort of virus.

I watched one of them stand up not long after he was shot multiple times in the chest. It's surely only a matter of time before the infected come bursting through the door here.

None of it makes any sense. I don’t know how this all happened but I do know that I'm not safe here. Where is the military? Are they even around any more? I don't know what's going on and in the city I am totally alone.

I am certain you are still out there somewhere, I can feel it. I want you to know that I will wait for you... Do not think that I am leaving you - you are and always will be with me and my love for you will be forever.

If you read this I will have made my way out of here. I will wait for you at the gas station just a few miles out of town.

I hope I can be there tomorrow evening and I will wait for a week. If you do not show up I will be heading north, to try and find someone - anyone - who might have survived this.

Forever yours.

Paradigm Shift reviews and comments

Don't Even think about playing this crap game. This Is a game like scape room of those that there are to able and you can play free in heaps of webs. Here, to not give aspect of flash game-Cutrongo online, have used a texture in each of the static images of the game, and have applied the blending Mode function: Multiply The Photoshop, transforming the game into a swill where you have sometimes to leave the eye s to discern a way to take or an object to catch, although what should make the game is to CATCH and go to TAKE by C... The objective of the game is super Original: Escape from "infected". We Already know that zombies are old-fashioned, and now they say "infected." It's Not the same, but it seems that going around saying "zombie" is like old, like saying "railroad" instead of "train" or "sociological experiment" instead of "Big Brother of Mie...". In addition, this game does not like to be played, because many times, without coming to story, comes an "infected" and kills you. It Seems that the developer or whoever has perpetrated this game, had the eggs well fat, and thought that this megas Montoncico was fun enough for after dying Chorrocientas times, start the game again Chorrocientas one. Its labels are "indie", "Adventure", "casual", Terror "," Point & Click "and" Zombies ". I explain to you: INDIE: That has been done with four dogs and, perhaps, with a lot of originality, but this is not the case. ADVENTURE: You take things and use things, but just start, I find a flask with a code recorded and no, that, coincidentally, can not be taken, because apparently, a strange code will surely not be important later. CASUAL: That Even by chance I'm going to play this truño again. TERROR: That Suddenly you hear a loud noise and comes the challenge of an infected. Bone, the typical disorder of confusing "scare" with "terror". POINT & CLICK: "Paradigm Shift" would have to wash his mouth in a car wash before wearing this label. ZOMBIES: That Nooo, which are infected. Or the ridiculousness of "walkers", which they say in "The Walking Dead". Did the characters in the series ever see a zombie movie? The first word that should have come to mind when seeing a zombie, should have been precisely "zombie". For 1 ' 99 € it's not that bad. Don't relativices this. It'S a crap game and a point. That's your opinion. Of course it is my opinion, but it is the case that my opinion coincides with a universal truth, which is that "Paradigm Shift" is a real m... Come On, go. Tell Me Something good that the game has. Hello? Are you there?
