Zafehouse Diaries 2: Try the technical demo!

Zafehouse Diaries is back! But, before we start our journey into a new, zombie-encrusted narrative, we need your help to test the technical aspects of the game.

Special demo builds of Zafehouse Diaries 2 for Windows and Mac have been made available (download links provided below), so we can make sure the game runs correctly on as many systems as possible.

As such, we're focusing on feedback regarding problems with graphics, audio, input and anything else related to actually running the game.

If you do hit something, we'd also appreciate a run-down of your computer's specifications, e.g. CPU, video card, amount of RAM, operating system and version (including service packs) and display resolution.



Please note the tech demo isn't representative of the final release (we're still adding a few bits and pieces) and comes with the following restrictions:
  • The game will end after 3 days of in-game time.
  • Limited to 3 survivors (custom or random).
  • Only the tutorial scenario, "Safe As Houses", is available.
  • Some dilemmas, events and modifiers disabled.
  • Item editor is disabled.

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.

Om detta spel

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

  • 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

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.
