À propos de ce jeu

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.

I found this game to be a real treat. It is addicting and well worth the ten dollars. The game somewhat reminded me of rebuild, but with more depth. I often find myself coming back to it. I would recommend this game to anyone looking for a challenging and interesting strategy game.

Zafehouse Diaries est un jeu difficile, parfois même un peu injuste, mais qui dispose d'une sacrée atmosphère. Ainsi donc vous dirigez quelques personnes coincés dans une ville envahie par les zombies. Pas de graphismes en dehors d'une map et de quelques portraits, des sons minimalistes (mais qui fichent la trouille^^), et un gameplay qui repose entièrement sur des décisions d'action effectuées heure par heure.
Une des grandes forces du jeu est de proposer une customisation quasi complète des personnages, des décors et des objets utilisables pendant une partie, ce qui permet de se créer son équipe, avec des vrais gens, et donc de flipper encore deux fois plus.
Je recommande si un jeu pratiquement entièrement textuel ne vous rebute pas, et si un niveau de challenge très relevé ne vous fait pas peur.
Je vous laisse un lien vers des vidéos de ma chaine, avec des abonnés hyper motivés pour faire partie de l'aventure^^.

Ce survival horror / jeu de plateau très difficile est pas mal foutu.
On a plus l'impression de jouer à un jeu de société au tour par tour plutôt qu'à un jeu vidéo.

Deux défauts majeurs cependant. Il n'est vraiment pas beau (Il aurait mérité de belles illustrations) et pour les joueurs francophones il y a un peu trop de textes en anglais écrit en tout petit.

A petit prix on peut tout de même y passer quelques bonnes heures et pour ceux qui accroche un éditeur permet d'augmenter sa durée de vie.

This game is a work of art. It's just amazing! If you're into strategy in general, this game is for you.

While you're never really IN the game itself (smashing zombie's to pieces) you control what goes on;
Make 'Kin' watch for zombies, while 'Jine' makes ammo.
There's skill levels; One star to five stars (though without making custom content, I've never seen anyone go over 4 stars)
There's medicine; 'Jine' threw a chair at 'Kin' and broke his arm. (The wounds never fully heal while I play, but you can turn off survivors hurting each other)
There's noise; While 'Jine' is making ammo, the noise attracts zombies.
There's custom content; Want a superawesomemegazombiekillingmachine? I did. I made one. It uses pistol ammo, while being a sniper. My survivors also modified it so that it's a shotgun as well!! You can also make custom survivors (AMAZING!!!)
There's rain; ...the rain should dampen the noise.
There's random events; A woman with a shopping cart came by today. She says she'll trade ____ for ____
You can make notes and signs on the map; Cross out a place you've looted and moved away from, circle and note down your base.
You can ajust difficulty SPECIFICALLY; How many zombies per in-game hour flow into the city? How much ammo is scattered? How many zombies in the buildings to start with? How much food? How much medicine?
There's hunger.
Survivors rest after working for some time.

THIS GAME IS JUST AMAZING!!!!!!!

Oh, Pro Tip: CHESS SETS ARE DEMONNNNSSSSSSSSSS!!!!!!!

Please ignore the time played here, I played the game on an average of 10 hours back before it came onto Steam.

Zafehouse: Diaries is a rather unique take on the survival/strategy genre. There are 3 different modes with different difficulties, that ultimately have the same goal, survival. Towns, events, items and survivors are all randomly generated. You can customise a survivor with your own story and backgrounds, which will then be randomly generated from a pool.

You interact with a diary that displays all the events that are happening during each hour. When I first played the game I was alittle put off by the fact that you interact with a diary. However as I played I fully understood why the interface is how it is and it is surprisingly informative. You can assign tasks for each survivor that they will try to acomplish to the best of their ability depending if they are any good at it (i.e. scavenging, barricading, cooking, etc.).

The game has quite alot of depth to it and some deep mechanics. A good example is that it might be wise to get one of your survivors to scout that motel a few doors down to see if there's any zombies, so that your group have somewhere nice to rest. Or maybe that hospital crawling with walkers has that bandage you so desperately need.

It also runs pretty well, even on them old toasters that are years old.

I did a mini Let's Play series on it that covered some of the newer updates, you can find the playlist here

It's a nice little zombie game. What makes it special is that it's almost completely textbased. This won't stop you from spending a great amount of time with it. The "special effects" bring some colour and action into the gameplay and you often find yourself bitting your nails, waiting for the results of your last turn.
An additional Perk is that you can customize a great deal of things. Adding your own pictures or making your own weapons and tools for your survivors to find adds a personal note to your struggle for survival.
If you play it on endless mode this struggle can become pretty boring though. You might end up wondering if you should just send your survivors into a zombie horde and be done with it.
But for this little money it's a nice game for every now and then if you're bored with fancy animations and 3D Gameplay ;)

EDIT: Read comments!

This is kind of a weird review, so bear with me.
I played this some months back for a few hours, and returned to see if any updates had been released. Apparently they have stopped updating it since one of the developers died, and the other is working his way through a depression, meaning that we probably won't receive anymore updates, at least not anytime soon. You can see the post regarding this on the forums.

With that being said, the game is not completely flawless, it could be optimized a lot and you will encounter bugs or usability problems. Still, I really recommend it, because of the unique gameplay that is fun and at the same time very addicting. It takes a game or two to learn the basics and after that it's very much trial and error. It's a new take on the Zombie survival genre and I enjoyed it a lot.

I wish all the best for the devs and their families.

ZHD is really tough and almost impossible to win, but you can have the pope and Jesus in one game and they can bash zombies, play a game of cards or chess, and hate each other, because Jesus just can't barricade windows, so that's a thing - A+ for fun

This is a wonderfully addictive game which is easy to get to grips with but brutally unforgiving.

I highly recommend the custom content options once you're finished with the three campaigns, as it adds longitivity and replay value to your game. They're easy to use and being able to add anyone and anything to the game really opens up your options.

*Pro-tip* Soap is very important to happiness, always have soap.

I had fun for a little while but to be honest, there's not enough content for its price. It would have been a good enough for a free flash game but not enough for a 9 € game.

Not a bad game for killing a bit of time, its good to see a new twist on the text based genre.

This game is rather enjoyable even though I have yet the cahnce to survive for to long in the dang game cause it does get rather difficult really fast. Survivors do not get along even if you create them its a challenge that makes you keep wanting more or you just give up and come back to it later. Ive only had the game for a couple days now I do not regret buying it the only thing now is to get better at the game and that will take time. I know my review may not be to helpful but I myself read posts here and that was a big factor into me getting the game. All I suggest is that you think twice about your choices in this game cause they can turn wrong really fast.

quite good game for a couple of hours or maybe coulpe of evenings. For long-term gaming it's too repeatable. But the concept is interesting.
