I Shall Remain is an Action Survival Role Playing game. Situated in an alternate history at the end of the Second World War, when Nazis managed to release a deadly virus over US territory, the game tells the story of two brothers and their intricate relation with the apocalyptic world rising in the leftovers of the Z0M81 Pandemic ravage.

This week, we'll be quickly running through the most important feature released this month inside the "June Update": The new SURVIVE! game mode

So! Why the big deal? Well.. Because if you ever wanted to play the game a few notches faster now you have the chance. And this is just the tip of the iceberg as the new game mode is going to see a LOT of improvements these upcoming months. I'll tell you what that is going to be, just read a few more lines.

               Yeah, there's a lot of BOOM! and LEVEL UP! Prepare for a serious war, you're in one!

The main idea of this game mode is to get the highest score. Which can get tricky, really. Because you need to carefully juggle both the "SCORE" and the "ACCURACY" meters. And accuracy is no joke, it goes up and down really fast if you're not planning your weapons, skills and reflexes just right. Here's how I've been going about my score in a 7 night play session(7 out of 10 because I'm no good).

                                                      survival score
                               Score and accuracy rise and vary throughout 7 game nights

You will be testing your skills during 10 game nights. Each night, a set of waves of infected starts and you need to send them back to where they came from.. or just kill them. Good news though, there's a pause wave between each infected wave.

                                               survive nights
                                                 Nights and waves progress swatch

There's more good news. You can team up with NPCs, buy, trade, learn new skills or upgrade others. Really a lot of help from all these kind NPC people, if you can afford to pay them, that is! With all the precious scavenging, looting and traders, I managed to build some serious bonus stats!

                                                survive atts
      Bonuses built via 7 nights of SURVIVE! game mode. Just imagine what one could accomplish in 10!

After each set of waves completed at night, in the morning the shop opens and you can meet up with your favorite traders to then trade in the goods. There is some major firepower to be obtained by playing your cards right in this game mode. You have until 6:00PM to scavenge the map, close the deals and prepare your battlefield.

          survive boom
      No! This is not an airstrike, just some high Level, explosive action.. you know, nothing special :)
    (note. the plan above actually failed, I've missed the BOSS type infected by a few meters)

Alright. I hope to have explained some basics about the game mode. It's pretty simple to grasp right now, really. In the upcoming months we'll be adding new maps, more complex and random mission quests for each night, which will be very different, changing the gameplay and the means with which you score points a lot! One night you might have to survive while guarding some point, saving others and other times you might need to get from A to B. These are just a few examples of the random quest objectives you'll be trying to complete while doing your best to stay alive. You will not be limited to 10 nights either, it will go on forever, if you can make it, that is!

ALSO! Be sure to get your copy of "I Shall Remain" if you'd like to support our development AND be on the lookout for a 20% OFF weekend sale through 10th-13th of July!

We thank you for your attention and invite you to follow our progress each week!

  flaming infected                           As a final note, here's an infected on fire, for your entertainment.

I love how the fact this game has been out and i have had it for months and still cant play episode 1, they havent touched or developed this game since 2012, what's goin on dude, im startin to feel screwed over here, ntm the bug that crashes the game while in survival mode is highly agitating.....So are you gonna finish what you started and continue adding onto what could be a great series, or are you afk for the next forever and give us the finger while the incomplete game sits here getting bought, it may be only five bucks, but it is still five bucks dude.Game has so much potential, and it feels like you are throwing it all away and abandoning the game, last comments were from either 2012 or the update from 2013. Don't let a great start off game die. it is like showing us candy, us reaching for it, then you yank back and say SYKE! Cmon please fix the bugs and give us more of this great game

The one uploaded in the drop box works perfectly. You may want to look into uploading that one to desura so this confusion ends =D

Can you post the link? I'd rather not email a random person for something that should be uploaded to Desura.
