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.

Don't know if I missed the idea or something but this game is boring. It is like an old browser based game. Excel style.

Yes, you missed something. In fact, you missed everything.

Please, return to your mindless industry ruining shoot'em ups.

Well said, I understand your point. I simply found it silly that you made such a sweeping comment, but your reasons are sound. I agree the game can be somewhat tedious- it's only for a certain type of gamer.

What can I say...I bought the game in a sale (the demo convinced me it would be worth a try) and I think it is great.

I would love a game mode which would allow you a longer play-through, and just one or two more "campaign" modes in general, but I really enjoy what is there at the moment.

There should be another Game-mode, Maybe involving a train, and you need to get to the station, but sadly the train is in need of repairs and you will need to fetch parts for it to fix it, once you finish that you can save yourself.

Tried the demo and enjoyed it. Might buy it later, or hoping for a small deduction for a Christmas sale or something. Seems like a lot of fun, but almost like an advanced flash game I have played in a semi-similar style (text and move around taking the city).

As it stands though, there are just far too many games at the same or lower price that seem to have more to them. Certainly isn't a graphics things, as I still find myself playing MUDs now and then or other IF games, and 80% or more of my purchases this past year or two have been indie - but picking this vs a AAA title on sale, or some indie games for $5-10 make it a rough choice.

That said, I do love the style of the game and hope it continues being added to and worked on, and I might end up picking it up anyways because it is so fun. Keep up the hard work, Screwfly! We all appreciate it!

Do you think my GTS 250 card will work for this game? I think it is only DirectX 10 compatible, but i'm not quite sure.

Hey Treiger,

Yes, your card should work fine. Just make sure you have DirectX 9 installed. Don't worry, DX9 won't overwrite DX 10 or 11 -- it works side-by-side with them.
