Join retired salesman rabbit, Hank, and his canine pal, Larry, in part one of this story-driven game series as they use their knowledge of influence and persuasion to make their way through the apocalypse—without having to risk their own skin.

With a mixture of dark comedy and the use of real-life influence tactics, this story-driven game puts you behind the wheel of the characters’ choices. Can you convince a timid animal to enter dangerous looting locations? Will you risk your scavenger’s life for more resources?
  • Bargain to convince animals to scavenge for you and split the loot.
  • Guide your scavenger in high-risk situations.
  • Trade items to earn the highest value.
  • Gamble items, if you too like to live dangerously.
  • Learn a thing or two about influencing others. (Works in human-dominated worlds, too.)
  • Survive without having to actually work too hard.

Scheming Through The Zombie Apocalypse: The Beginning reviews and comments

Translated by
Microsoft from Russian
Product received for free the Story of the Adventures of two Proindians, a dog Larry and a rabbit Henka in comprehended their animal-world zombie-apokalepsise. For a while they were flocking over the zombies and those unhappy, which they caught, looking at the window of his apartment, but when the food supplies came to an end, decided to go Rob shops. But, hooked once, they did not like it terribly. So They went on a search for the Simplichkov, which can be beaten to risk a sally in the next store. Posing as professional scavengers, loot specialists, they sent hapless simplers to risk themselves on a sally in the shop for a fair or not very fraction of the loot. Helped them in this card stolen from local bandits-two buffalo. It Seems that this is a toy-action, but... In fact, it is a visual novella with a nonlinear storyline. The dialog options you choose will affect what happens. Hard or not, I don't know, I don't have a second-time crush. It's a lot. Very much. Well, it's just like a lot of dialogues. Chatter, chatter, chatter, oh, something happened. Chatter, chatter, chatter. It is Felt that chatter could be interesting, if someone bothered to translate into Russian. It has many Otsyalok to humor, some memes, some cultural kuryzam, but not all this time to translate, and not all hints understand, probably it is so-called cultural code, which is understandable to the Americans, but not very clear to everyone else. In principle, it seems that the dialogues are well worked out, but if you have not reached the fluent level of reading in English, most of the said will remain not read, not heard, not understood. And If you do not know this language, the game will be frankly boring for you, because for every half minute action takes place 5 or even 10 minutes of incomprehensible chatter. Still, without competent and high-quality localization of such games seem meaningless. I hope to the developer it eventually comes. I would gladly pass it again if I fully understood the whole text. The Story is not a god news what a long, just a few looted stores and a couple of visited and free of zombies settlements. If it were not for a huge number of dialogues, the whole effective part could be passed in minutes for 5-10. The Developer has announced the continuation of the story, so it may soon or not be very possible to learn what has done on this tricky couple. It is Recommended to buy if you are fluent in English, or if a Russian translation appears. Without This, the purchase is frankly meaningless even at a discount.
