A sophisticated engine generates new survivors, towns and content so every adventure is a different experience, and you can use built-in editors to add yourself and others to the game.Features
  • Deal with the volatile relationships of your survivors by strategically assigning them to tasks, siding with them on difficult decisions or seeding rumours about their past
  • The undead aren't the only threat - negotiate, bargain, trade with or fight merciless lynch mobs, zombie hunters and bitten survivors
  • Experience a fresh story each time you play as the procedural engine crafts new survivors, towns and content
  • Built-in editors make it easy to add yourself and your friends to the game. Create your own survival horror story in your hometown
  • Unique diary interface records each action, choice and disaster. Save your heroic story and share it with others

Schö nes, Survivor Adventure, Narrated in text and Image for in between, with new Situations and Areas. Even if the Price vllt is a bit too high for that.

In itself, a great Idea and very funny that you can insert your own Characters. However, I find the Relationship Problems and Effects problematic. Which is still very funny at the Beginning ("Oh Girlfriend X has now gone away with Girlfriend Y. Na something "), at some point is only annoying and obstructive. Maybe I'm just not clever enough, but I find the Game quite hard and I didn't even start to see the End.

Despite its unsual approach, I really like Zafehouse Diaries. It might seem time-consuming at first, and there certainly is a lot of learning to do, but it opens up a lot of amazing possibilites. If you are a serious person looking for a mind challenge, you will not be disappointed. If you're a casual player looking for some fun, try surviving the Zombie Apocalypse with Gandalf, Dobby, Arya Stark, Alanna and a flying cat. :P The game takes unexpected turns, and never gets boring.

If zafehouse: diaries is not at the top level of graphics, transcribing the actions of the game in the form of a newspaper, it compensates for its unmistakable management side worthy of the current games of survivals. Indeed, depending on the game mode, you start with a number of survivors and must manage the rounds, activities, pause times and "rumors" between members to ensure your survival. Explorations of new territory invaded by zombies, settlement of internal conflicts and preparation for possible attacks will be your daily in the game. Here we find a real management game, to use the information that is given to us to prepare the continuation of the events. At the limit of the strategy game, every action that can turn to vinegar just because you misassess the risks, this game will offer you an inescapable pleasure, if you will be more captivated by the reading of the newspaper than by the vision of the actions. Rating: 8.5/10 the most: the exploration of the places, the quick grip and the different modes of play. The least: no real graphic rendering, no tutorial and the first frustrating part.
