I Shall Remain is an Action Survival Role Playing game.

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.

A new version has been uploaded now, few fixes (and some unexpected crashes removed) as well as details about the controls (please read the Readme menu in the installation folder of the game - it shows everything you need to know about how to control the game in most detail from actions you can perform which happy to say are not few to teammate control, command and selection)

I've been playing for quite a while now, playing and replaying rather. And I really like it! Needs some polish though, things like improved fighting animations would be nice. Bu the concept of the game is amazing! Can I suggest something else?? A sandbox Survival mode :P where you'd have like an open map, and need to eat, and drink to survive. would be awesome! Keep on working on it! its sure to be a hit!!

Each episode will add few new major features not part of the old episodes (one which is sandbox mode with survival features, other is building barricades and enforcing buildings against hordes of zombies, another is vehicles and rich quest based adventures)

played the prologue, was pretty awesome. Some Combat animations could be approved, but i liked that my squad members died atm i looked away :)
The rpg Elements looked pretty awesome too. General Performance could be improved.
I was impressed, the game slipped into my "next-buy-List" on place 3 (right behind Kenshi and Demon Souls [i don't give up the hope, that they make a pc version :D ]).
Good luck with further development :)

Theres close control over the teammates, this will allow you and them to stay away from troubles most of the time (please read the new version Readme text - probably have to download it again). Here is a short description of how you can control teammates : T key - attack mode (they will get farther from you and decide what to attack on their own), Y key - they will stay put and shoot on sight, U key - they will regrup and stay as near as possible to where youre going at the same time killing everything getting close to you. You can also select/deselect teammates using the F1-F6 keys, F7 is for all teammate selection, F8 is for deselect all. This way you can break your team in multiple parts and command them differently (for example you can keep 2 in regroup mode near you while the other two can be in attack mode and clean everything around you at a greater distance)

that could help :D
but it i liked it, because i hate zombie games in which you don't have to pay attention all the time and you can shot mindless at the biggest enemy incoming;)

Might be that if you play the game you might find out? :)
Seriously, this game supposed to be fun, not revolutionary. Theres aspects that are new and old at the same time but i wont go so far to say you've never seen that already in another game.

I don't think he meant Rocket Propelled Grenades, I think he meant Role Playing Genre.
