Dear Jenny,

I don't know where you are but write you this letter in the hope that you might return home.

Water and food supplies are running low and I have to leave Riverlake. I haven't slept in what seems like ages - I try and shut my eyes but I keep hearing strange noises outside.

The streets echo with desperate screams and it's too dangerous to be out for long. There are crazy people running around, attacking anyone in sight - it's like they are infected with some sort of virus.

I watched one of them stand up not long after he was shot multiple times in the chest. It's surely only a matter of time before the infected come bursting through the door here.

None of it makes any sense. I don’t know how this all happened but I do know that I'm not safe here. Where is the military? Are they even around any more? I don't know what's going on and in the city I am totally alone.

I am certain you are still out there somewhere, I can feel it. I want you to know that I will wait for you... Do not think that I am leaving you - you are and always will be with me and my love for you will be forever.

If you read this I will have made my way out of here. I will wait for you at the gas station just a few miles out of town.

I hope I can be there tomorrow evening and I will wait for a week. If you do not show up I will be heading north, to try and find someone - anyone - who might have survived this.

Forever yours.

From my growing library of games(thanks to bundles), I noticed this game couple of days ago, because it just got updated. So I briefly read the reviews on Steam. I see almost all negative reviews, and most reviewers seem to only spend an average of 15 minutes or so. I thought I could give it a try and spend a few minutes, just for fun, to see bad this point and click game is.

But I ended up spending a couple of hours on it. The game itself is very short, but if you really want to finish the game, you'd have to start the game over and over again; because there is no save, and instant inevitable death everywhere. At one point, I just want to give up, because I keep dying and restarting. And even when you idle for a couple of minutes, a zombie will come out of nowhere and then game over. So I tried to motivate myself to keep playing, telling myself that this is one of those cool horror movie where you stuck in a nightmare loop that you keep starting over from the beginning after you die.

Anyways, this game starts off with this windowed 640x480 resolution(I think, because there is no menu to change the resolution or make it full screen). And when I maximize the window, it has white boarder around it. And you just can't minimize it back, the only way is to just quit the game by right clicking the icon on your taskbar.

This game is pretty dark for the most part, just hard to see anything. Most objects and even passages are very well hidden; of course there is no option or setting to change the brightness and contrast. The only thing that is not well hidden are those poster and CDs I saw in the game; and when you click on that, it will open up your browser to the soundtrack page of this game. Shameless, shameless plug.

You'd probably have more fun reading Wikipedia on the phrase, Paradigm Shift, what a waste of a fancy title on a game like this. And what a waste of time playing this.

This game is butt.

There. I put more effort into that sentence than the developer did into this trainwreck of a game.

Why are developers so intent in creating the worst game ever. That is not something to strive.

Each room has a unseen timer attached to it. The timer is around 20 - 30 seconds. After the time is up, a zombie will randomally appear and basically insta-kill you. Gameplay is therfore trial and error based without a checkpoint system so basically it's a ♥♥♥♥♥♥ flash point and click game only you die every minute and restart from the beginning.
