Inside Zafehouse Diaries 2: Custom content

As Zafehouse Diaries 2 draws closer, we have more to share from behind the development curtain! For this update, we'll take a peek at ZD2's customisation tools, which allow players to add their own content to the game.

Customisation has been a major component of all Screwfly titles and Zafehouse Diaries 2 is no exception! Just like the original, you'll be able to make your own survivors, items and occupations and we've made it easier than ever to get your content into the game.



Build a better survivor
While our other games, Fear Equation and Deadnaut, allow you to create your own characters and import photos, it was Zafehouse Diaries that started it all and the sequel will continue the trend.

Character customisation in Zafehouse Diaries 2 is very similar to the first game, with two exceptions.

Firstly, if you don't want the game to randomly assign prejudices to your custom survivors, you're free to select your own. This means you can create specific rivalries between characters.

Secondly, creating custom groups of survivors has been greatly streamlined (see "Group Dynamics" below).

Of course, all the usual options are there -- age, gender, occupation, education and so forth -- meaning you can tailor your team to your exact specifications.



Group dynamics
Zafehouse is a game about a group of people trying to survive a zombie apocalypse, so if you're creating your own survivors, you should be able to customise how they're grouped together as well.

The original Zafehouse wasn't very flexible in this regard and addressing this was a big priority for the sequel.

As such, Zafehouse Diaries 2 features a dedicated group editor so you can assign one or more survivors together.

You can even see the group's starting relationships before entering the game. Keep in mind that different scenarios and difficulty settings may alter these.

You can fill all five spots, or leave a couple open to randomisation -- the choice is yours.

This makes it incredibly easy to share survivors amongst a variety of groups and selecting your team at the start of a scenario takes just a few clicks.



Post-apocalyptic job hunting
A survivor's abilities and skills are defined mostly by their occupation and so Zafehouse Diaries 2 comes out of the box with an occupation editor.

To get you started quickly, you can clone another occupation and make a few tweaks... or change it completely.

Once you've designed an occupation, it will become available in the survivor editor, ready to be assigned to custom characters.



Learn the craft
Finally, you'll be able to make your own items, based on templates to get you up and running with minimum fuss.

As with occupations, you can change one property, or all of them, depending on how deep you want to go.

There's no limit to the type of items you can make, be it a Swiss Army Knife or a Long-Range Shotgun -- it's totally up to you.

You can even add a custom image and sound effects to your items. The images will appear in the diary when the item is discovered and trigger their sound effects when used.

Inside Zafehouse Diaries 2: Scenarios

Welcome back to Zafehouse Diaries 2! After a brief hiatus we're back with more insights into the upcoming sequel. This time around we take a look at the new scenarios you'll have to tackle.

The original Zafehouse came with three scenarios: No Survivors, Roadkill and Deadline (in order of increasing difficulty).

For Zafehouse Diaries 2, we're adding several new challenges, as well as comprehensive options to tweak each game to match your preferred style of play.



Fresh meat
Zafehouse Diaries 2 comes with a number of unique scenarios, each with their own objectives, enemies and even orders.

For example, one might require you to patch up the power grid before making your stand, while another will task you with gathering the right assortment of survivors... who might not exactly get along.

Whatever your goal, you'll have a variety of approaches available to you. Will hit-and-run breaches be the most efficient, or should you defend your safehouse while steadily gathering supplies?



Old favourites
Seasoned Zafehouse players will recognise a few of the sequel's scenarios, including Roadkill and Deadline. While these modes follow the narratives of the first game, they pack enough changes and new twists to keep even the best undead survivalist busy.

Once you start tailoring things with custom content and under-the-hood options (see below), you'll find these classic scenarios unfolding in suprising ways that simply weren't possible in the original.



Play your way
Zafehouse Diaries has always been a challenging game and while it's great to pit yourself against each scenario at its intended difficulty level, we know how useful and fun it can be to go behind the scenes and tweak things to better suit your playstyle.

So, once you've selected a scenario, you'll have the option to change loads of individual settings, including zombie combat strength, the impact of hunger and fatigue and supply quantities. You can even disable prejudices entirely.

This screen will also allow you to select a group containing up to five custom survivors. How do you create custom survivors? That's a story for next time... and they're just the tip of the iceberg.

Om dette spil

Stuck in a remote, abandoned town, you must lead five survivors with conflicting motivations, fragile relationships and fiery prejudices to safety from the roving undead. 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

Zafehouse: Diaries is a fresh take on the zombie / survival horror genre. If you're sick of mindless shooters or generic-looking top down affairs that just don't get what the zombie genre is about, this is the game for you.
