very nice and fullfiling game, i love how a lot of your games take place in the same universe, loved the sagitarian cameo!
Well, I like it. I just think that there could be more to it.
Unfortunately, it's pretty much an all-luck game as far as I can tell. I know it's supposed to get harder as days pass, but there's almost no strategy to go on. You can't plan to use health, bullets or food effectively because you don't know when you'll ever need them, and there's always a chance of you losing them at any time.
It's a fun little game, it's could just loose a little more strategy..
One of the best Text Based RPGs on Newgrounds...
Not many good Text Based Games on Newgrounds so always good to get a really fun and time consuming game on here.
Many different encounters, though some of them do get really repetitive after a while. One of the big ones, once you get past around Day 500 is the super zombie. Its annoying to lose all your ammo after running into him 5 times in a row. I understand the point, being the game tries to get harder as you get farther in the game, but it becomes more annoying than difficult.
Adding new encounters would be a big must for this game, as most of them get rather old. Also a way to add to the survival aspect, would be to instead of showing how much of an item you would get if you choose it in a Choice Encounter, would be to leave it blank so you would get a random amount and risk getting a small amount of food instead of getting maybe a larger count of ammo.
A good way to change up the encounters would be to add more zombie types, not just character sprites. Adding a bigger zombie or a tall, scary zombie each with different health and power would add to the survival and overall gameplay to this game. Maybe even add after you get past a certain day a fight with a Super Zombie as a boss.
The survival in the game feels very real as you watch your food go down all the way to zero and have to see the "You are now starving" in red text to let you know that if you don't find food fast, your screwed, but the satisfaction in finding a large group of food after starving for a while feels like you can take on anything. Getting to find new weapons and armor feels like you have completed a a challenge, due to getting to kill a zombie in 2 hits instead of 3, which is just as satisfying if not more than finding a large amount of food.
You could make the game a little more personal to get you to attach to it, by adding customization to your character, and maybe a bit of a back story to get you to think about what may have happened, and make you want to go farther then stopping after getting all the medals. Another cool part to add may be getting perks or new skills to add to your character to get to deal more damage, better chance at finding food, better chance of getting more items when in the Choice Encounters, or stronger attacks to deal to a zombie. I understand this is Text Based so the point in which this may not be here like most RPGs is to make it harder and more like an average Text Based game, but it would add to your defeat when your strong character you have worked hard on to to level up dies of starvation.
A very solid game, but does have some small aspects in it that may get annoying or repetitive. but solid gameplay with the a Text Based game and a real sense of survival in the it makes this one of the best Text Based games on Newgrounds.
Keep up the good work....
Very good game,the problem is:when I almost had the last medal,my computer had reseted,trololololo.
Good game, didn't have a problem with finding food or anything but its very repetitive and becomes boring after a while.
Good idea though.
