Version 0_0_0_4 adds new weapons, a safe house, bug fixes, and some other gameplay changes. Read more for the full change list.

  • Closing a menu will now return to the last game state. (example: inventory opened during play will return you to the gameplay when closed, not command mode.)
  • Fixed some problems that were causing the game to crash. (squad menu crash & end of map random crash)
  • Reduced the range for interacting with objects to a reasonable distance. You can interact with objects near any of your squad members.
  • Added highlighting to interactive objects when you hover over them. Green highlight for objects within reach, red for things out of reach.
  • Items need to be dragged completely off the inventory menu to drop them. (No more accidentally dropping items between the inventory slots)
  • Added shared item slots. Items placed in the shared slots can be accessed by any survivors on your team. If an item is picked up(and stackable) and the same item is in one of the shared slots, the items will be stacked there first. The main point of this is to avoid having to constantly split/manage the ammo between your survivors, and also reduce clutter in the inventory.
  • Fixed problem where some zombies would randomly disappear at night.
  • Survivors now reload if their ammo is low and there are no zombies around.
  • The player can now rest in beds if the entire building has been secured(every room searched) and there are no zombies nearby.
  • Added a help message system. For example: "out of range", when the player is trying to open a door they can't reach.
  • Added safe house. The safe house is the new starting area for the player. It's surrounded by a fence for protection from zombies.
  • Added some new guns and changed the old ones.

ah yeah, I've just noticed that the "HiDef" profile is on by default. I can probably switch it down without any trouble as the game doesn't use any fancy 3D or shaders.

So unfortunately, it's not something you can fix on your end right now, but you should be able to play the next alpha. Sorry for the inconvenience.
