NEWS: Zafehouse: Diaries is out now.

Zafehouse: Diaries is a tactical game of survival, planning, resource management and problem-solving. Manage your survivors’ needs, prejudices and motivations and you might stay around long enough to be rescued.

Tell your story
A unique, diary-based interface records your actions, reveals the state of the world and provides hints and clues to help you.

Pick your battles
A sophisticated combat engine models all battles in the game, from a zombie slipping in through a bathroom window, to a swarm flooding into the hospital you thought was secure.

Know your survivors
Survivors have unique personalities and skills – use them wisely and the group will work efficiently. Left idle, they’ll explore, socialise, play games and tinker.

Relationships matter
Make sure you check in on your survivors and see how they’re getting along. Poor relationships mean they won’t work well together, and may even end up fighting.

Add yourself and friends to the game and create mods using C#.

2 comments by ScrewflyStudios on Jul 23rd, 2013

You may have spent a few dark and lonely nights in Zafehouse: Diaries, desperately trying to keep your band of dishevelled survivors alive against the odds. Until now, it's been hard to know just how well you might be doing, in comparison to other players.

That's a lot of dead zombies!

So, we've just put the finishing touches on Bodycount, a "dynamic" infographic that shows a number of interesting stats collected over a sliding seven-day period including:

• Zombies killed
• Rumours spread
• Failed amputations
• Average hours lasted in No Survivors
• And a bunch more!

It also shows the lifetime percentages for a number of dilemma decisions. Curious as to how many people have fought the super zombie? Or locked a survivor away in a room full of zombies? Well, now you can find out.

The page updates once per hour, at which stage it will randomly select four dilemma percentages to show, so, make sure to pay it a few visits to see all the stats!

People really like trolleys.

Zafehouse: Diaries is a complex game, but that complexity might not be immediately apparent from looking at screenshots or videos. With Bodycount, we hope to show off the many, many cogs turning under the hood of the simulation.

Yes, there's more to it than just shooting zombies! Survivors live, die and get along based on the player's decisions, but there are some difficult, moral choices that must be made if you want to survive and a great deal of them won't leave you with a warm, fuzzy feeling.

We'll continue to add or change the statistics shown over time, but for now, it should give you some insight into how others are braving the unrelenting deadliness that is Zafehouse: Diaries.

Has the developer given any thought to adding some ways of adjusting difficulty? I think this has some great mechanics but I'd appreciate if there were things I could adjust to make it easier to get into the game, and then be able ramp it up into something tougher when I get more acclimated to it (like fewer supplies, more zombies, etc).

Hi ProfessorGascan - thanks for the feedback. We're looking into difficulty adjustments, but feel free to drop by the forums and make some suggestions too.

Looks interesting but seems a little expensive at £9.49.

Bought it and really enjoying it. If you want something that has a real story element to it and you don't mind there being no 3d graphics etc. Then try it. very atmospheric and no two games go the same.

Same. Played a few hours now and it is quite entertaining despite any hands-on action as such.

I've been waiting for it's release on a digital distribution platform ever since I discovered the project about 2 years ago. The guy that made this also made an excellent suite of tools to create your own DnD classes and powers. Very talented dev.

Hm... the game title had a Z in it... I wonder what it could be about...? :D

I like the sound of this, especially the unique aspect of the "diary".
