I Shall Remain

For anyone updating to this version from the original one (0.8.0.0) please make sure you delete your local content before doing so (we disabled profile removal in the .ini file and there are inconsistencies with the first version.

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)
