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.

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.

Any thoughts of working this design into a sofware for Andriod or IOS?

It just seems like a visual style that would play well and flow well on a full sized tablet.

It is something we're looking into, but we don't have anything official to announce at the moment.

uhh, ive been trying to play this game (demo) but it keeps crashing out, saying that "Game Executable" couldnt run it after starting a new game. Any help?

This must be a great game since it reminds me of game where you use day time to search for weapons, survivors, and food to travel to different locations to get to Union City: the evac area. But you must fight and protect your self and survivors (who help), from zombies who attack where your hiding till morning.

Hey Biogame,

Can you make sure to follow the FAQ on our forums:

The key points are:

1) You must be running Windows XP SP2 with .NET 2.0 SP2 or later
2) You must have DX9 installed (DX10 or DX11 is not sufficient)
3) Your graphics card must support DX9.0c

But be sure to check out the link above, as it contains more detailed steps to resolving startup issues.

Hey Grey0ne, I'm not sure if this answers your question, but there is an internal limit on the number of zombies in the game, but this is mainly for performance reasons and to keep things sane from a balance perspective.

Zombies move in and out of buildings, move between rooms and are attracted to loud noises, so you'll never quite know just how many zombies are around, until they're swarming you. :)

So basically there is a small chance to kill them all out? )

It's possible, but highly unlikely. :) You'd probably die of starvation first.

Yes, it's possible to get to the helicopter. Not sure what your second question is though.
