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.


  • 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.

В целом, может быть, это даже и неплохая игра. У неё симпатичная идея - походовые стратегии про зомби всё-таки не так заиграны, как шутеры и тавер дефенсы. У неё симпатичная механика: раздать приказы и смотреть за их выполнением - это вполне приемлемо и весело, как по мне. Получение результатов в качестве дневника лично мне кажется не слишком необходимым, но судя по названию игры, у них бы иначе не получилось. Да и какая разница, пойдёт и так.

А вот чего я совсем не ждал, так это психологии персонажей из фильмов категории "Б". Два здоровых мужика обламываются (ок, в оригинале 'frustrated') забивать досками окна один час. Хрупкая девушка обижается на всех, ухудшая отношения, потому что все заняты и не могут поиграть с ней в шахматы. А потом обижается на единственного инженера в группе так сильно, что ломает ему руку. А ещё через час ещё и рожу всю расцарапывает.

Блин, я не понял, это что за люди, которые не могут ужиться друг с другом пару часов?! Даже под угрозой смерти от наступающих зомбей?!

И ладно бы они просто цапались, а мне их мирить. Так я не могу их мирить! У меня из всех средств воздействия - "разделить тех, кто не любит друг друга" (но это же невозможно, когда _все_ предвзято относятся к кому-то другому, а набор действий состоит из 4-х-5-ти вариантов, часть из которых требует кооперации!). И "распространить слух о ком-то". Что улучшает текущие отношения, но никак не задевает общей "нелюбви" и вдобавок может быть использовано всего один раз в день - а день - это 24 часа/хода - и влияет аж на одного человека.

Добавьте к этому каких-то безумно сильных зомбей. Моя первая партия из пяти человек, вооружённая дробовиком, ножом, топором и битой, была растоптана (trampled) тремя зомбями при зачистке первого же на вид безобидного дома.

В общем, кому-то мож и понравится, но я в это играть точно не буду.

Game: Zafehouse Diaries
Summary: Plays like Rebuild, not for everybody
Rating (5/10 = failure): 8
Multiplayer: No
Completion: 10 hrs
Cards: No
Cloud: No
Cost: ~0.5 USD bundled

Zafehouse is a fascinating game (to me). Those that have played the excellent Flash game, Rebuild, will get the basic idea - you have a small group of survivors and you spend turns trying to survive and win. Standing in your way are ever-increasing hordes of zombies (depicted with their dazzling animation of... a still-frame blood splatter) and your survivors who snap at each other because of their race, gender, and music-playing.

All games are randomly generated. With three modes of gameplay, the replay value is good. Be prepared to lose the first few games, as there is a lot to absorb, and the fact that your survivors are ravenously hungry, fragile and dumb. With the default settings, the game is indeed quite difficult, but learning what's worth the risk and what isn't is part of the fun.

The interface is rather minimalistic. As best I can tell there are less than 10 screens in the whole game! For the most part it does its job. For a good few hours I didn't know how to breach or assault a place because there's no tutorial and I didn't know you could click on the tabs up top on the investigation screen. There's an online manual, but who clicks on that?

The ability to customize your own survivors with your own photos is a nice touch. I appreciate that a lot, as I was a lot more connected to the survivors with my own pictures. You can also create custom jobs, but this is very easy to abuse and makes the game far too easy if used (and consequently disables achievements). Speaking of achievements, even though I disabled all custom content, I was still unable to get any achievements, so I don't know what's going on there.

All your actions are recorded in a "diary" that can be saved upon game completion, but honestly, those records strike me as... uninteresting. I don't care to reexamine my escapades, nor would I want to read someone else's. It's not a bad feature, but it just feels... I dunno, wasted?

Overall I had a good experience. I'm giving it an 8/10, knocking points for its almost lazy interface, occasional events with no positive outcome, and incredibly dumb survivors in a life-or-death situation. The big question is, is it fun? Even after completion, I went back to play it some more. That's not something I can say for many games these days.

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.

So this one was an unexpected, yet, pleasant surprise. I got it as part of the blink bundle, which before a week ago I'd never even heard of. When I saw screenshots of the gameplay, I was very skeptical of the rather simplistic diary view, and the whole concept of a game being based entirely on diary entries was a little odd to me. However, as soon as I started playing, I began to see just how fun and engaging it really is. Even without fancy graphics, this game manages to engross you in a zombie infested world, and you'll find yourself being easily absorbed into the addictive gameplay. The easy addition of custom content is just the icing on this deliciously zombie infested cake, and allows you to effortlessly add you and your friends into the game. You can even add your own location photos to take it one step further, allowing you to truly act out the apocalypse in your own home town.

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 ;)
