I made some adjustments, reducing the chance of the super zombie showing up. The idea for the game was that it gradually gets harder with each passing day, and that your luck is worse each day. That is why it gets worse as you go, to see how long you can survive. I've taken everyone's crits into consideration and will make adjustments and release it again in the future!

The game autosaves. You can quit at any time, and come back to continue.

The goal of this game is to essentially see how long you, our hero, can survive after the end of the known world. There is some luck involved in this game, but also planning out what resources to use and when, is a major key to surviving for a long time. Please let me know what you guys like and dislike about the game and I will happily make adjustments based on the audience's opinions.

You don't have to rush in the combat, take your time. The zombies can only attack once, per each time you attack them. You hit them, then they can try to hit you. You always go first.

Pretty decent game, but very repetitive. Thought I'd see what happened if I went for two years. Day 731 and 114 food later, I see no reason to keep playing. Love the fu manchu mustache being the best armor, that's lol worthy. Best way to play is to ALWAYS pick food till you get at least 20, then play around a bit with working out and taking ammo. With some good luck, you'll meet the Doctor often enough that you won't need to rest much. Oh, and as soon as you get a med kit, use it, unless you have completely full health, otherwise the super zombie will get it. Probably the best improvement would be the ability to kill the super zombie, after a certain number of days, or maybe a certain level of weapon/armor upgrades. Otherwise, a fun time waster.

This game is so fun at first and then come bored when you can't fight zombie or find some better gear then it will fun again when you have a very good gear. I think this game will be better if you add some event such as you kill some bandit and got a new gun or add a loot system that make a random drops from zombie. By the way I really need an unlockable new rest screen.

It's an alright time killer.

Your Max HP effects how strong enemies are.
-ex. If you have a hp cap of 10 through out the game enemies will die in the lowest amount of strikes possible (gun/melee 2-4 no wep upgrades, 1-1, 2, or 3 respectively more upgrades), aside from training or "level up" screens where you are effectively making the enemies damage endurance stronger.

Food gain/loss, ammo gain/loss, hp restore/hp loss, weapon/armor upgrades, and barters for gains of previously listed scenarios are all randomized.
The explorable areas, there names and the listed above in them, are all randomized as you proceed through them. This game has no written ending.

Weapon upgrades (hockey stick, bat, machete, chainsaw - etc) effect bullet damage. 1 weapon upgrade (bat) at 10 max health will one shot enemies when using the gun option. Machete/chainsaw (3rd/4th upgrade) +etc at 10 max health 1 shots with a melee swing.

It's not that the game becomes harder the further you get into it and I haven't noticed an increase of bad encounters now passing day 200, its just the illusion of the mechanic. If you increase or become more vital you're countering the definition of vitality. A counter productive beginners trap.

Honest opinion, I think RNG is over played in many games today. Replacing story arcs for randomly generated areas dismisses any accomplishment of progress or "the journey". Yes, in replays you get a different pattern but it's all the same stuff just jumbled up from the first go.

Gameplay necessities ex. loot, food, upgrades needed for ensured survivability thrown into the RNG blender turn a strategically placed layout into luck of the draw.

But seeing as this is a visualized text based adventure with an action element alot of these fit well. All except for food... Dying to starvation equates to darwinism.
If you don't harvest or find food in the length of time starvation takes to set in IRL, its kinda your fault you died. The hunger mechanic, does bring in an element of psuedo realism but in reality the risk of starvation doesn't set in for weeks. Some have gone 8+ weeks without food, some go 2 weeks. Fat, metabolism, etc factors play into it. Not, "I RAN OUT OF WHEATIES x_x".

Dehydration would be slightly more acceptable but unless your in a desert it's still not gonna be hard to find vegetation, puddles, bodies of water, or even stored drinks in an urban environment. (last ones debatable depending on how long the worlds been destroyed.)

Inshort, leave food/water out of the equation, assume the character does it naturally. Leave the grip of death to mortality wounds... and disease... what an RNG way to die... disease >.> don't do it. Highlander death or bust.

3/5. Had fun, enjoyed what it had to offer.
