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.

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

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.

I was told by Desura that I can upgrade my demo to the full version. How do I do this?

why is GOG version said v2.0.2 while desura version is v.1.1.9, which one is newer ?

and i read that the gog included DX and everything, well please add the game only version to download, because my bandwith is very limited, and i know the size is only 300 MB, but my bandwith limit is 1.5 GB/month.

i prefer GOG, because Desura library is a mess (while GOG i can put it on GOG games Folder), and its hard to find any games, especially if we already have lots of it.

Hello DM77777 - it's GOG policy to bundle all necessary files, which is why it's so large. We can't really help you there.

The 2.0.2 version number is something that GOG assigned to their installer. However, both Desura and GOG versions feature the latest version of the game (currently 1.1.9).

thanks for the reply, and good to know that its the same version, maybe you should put the info somewhere, because there are a lot of cases that when their games got into steam or gog, the dev did not update the desura version anymore.

so it kinda good to know that both are the same version.

i guess i'm ok with desura version since its the same, but it seems gog policy kinda sucks, they could just provide the files separately.

Thanks for the support!

The reason for the larger file size with GoG is because it includes all the dependencies (DirectX, .NET, etc) while Desura and our own site just has the game. That said, our installer provides the necessary download links, if required.
