-------------------WARNING-----------------------
This is NOT really a GAME.
This is an INTERACTIVE STORY in the form of a (slightly) animated comic.
---------------------------------------------------------
Zombie Society - Death after Death #3/3
story and programming by Francesco Dell'Anna Muja
art and colors by Giorga Longo
music by Antonio Mariano
----------------SUMMARY-------------------------
What's the answer behind the mistery of the missing zombies? Is everything really alright in Zombie Society?

Read along, find clues, ask the right questions and help Margh make choices that will alter the plot and lead to three different endings (plus a secret one).

----------------------------------------------------------
---------------SAVING DATA-----------------------
If the games aren't saving/sharing your choices properly, please follow these instructions:

- First and second episodes only save the data at the END of the story. You probably have to play the whole game while you're online or it won't work.
- The best way to make sure the game saved your data is to check the medals in episode 2 and 3: if they correspond, you're good to go.
- As a last resort, try clearing cookies, make sure your browser and flash plugin is fully updated, and restart

---------------------------------------------------------
---------------AUTHOR'S NOTES---------------
Hey guys,

This being the final issue of a three-parts series, it will remember the choices you made in the previous ones. This is true if you're using local saves, too, as long as you've played both games on the same domain (Newgrounds)

And so, this story ends here. But many others await you in the months to come! I have big projects for the future, and if you had fun with this comics series (and I certainly hope so), you don't want to miss what's coming next.

How to review this? Its excellent in so many ways... the multiple possibilities of ending the game, the quality, the writing... a great way to spend a rainy afternoon! Thank you so much for a zombie adventure with a twist!

Man, i commented you in the game zombie society vs Nine Deaths Cat, i came since Walls can bleed and honestly, i thought your game series was really good, a bit goofy for me, but one of the best , Now that i watched this, and having in mind that this is the real sequel (thanks to your comments in Brain Drain) i'm capable to see almost the whole history (i have to play Dead Detective yet) and is really amazing what you did here, this has so much potential, because this franchise have an excellent quality, i congratulate your work team for making this great job.

What I like most about this story is that despite using one of the most used topics lately (the zombies), it moves away from many of the stereotypes that are handled, with a lot of characters that have a great importance for the plot , at least enough to make it believable that they are part of a complex society, which by the way represents a good metaphor for our current society.

Keep doing it like this, Excellent work.

Thank you a lot for this kind review and for your support, I'm very glad you used your time to read the whole comics series and that you enjoyed this much.
I like to put contrast in my stories, like taking an overused horror setting and turning it to comedy, like using an overall goofy feeling with darker stories in the background.

And I'm really glad when someone notices it, and even appreciate it! So, thanks again, hope you'll like my future stories too!

I got ending #3 even if botched most choices and got bronze or silver medals throughtout most of the story, still happy to see the detective with his loved one in the end. I like Guvhn always talking about food though.


Muja responds:

The original idea was to let each game remember the player's past choices... But since that relied on cookies - which are unreliable by nature - it didn't work as I expected.

So, in the end, I made it so it was possible to reach the "good" ending even if you made all the wrong decisions in past episodes.

Glad you liked it!

I have played all 3 parts of this game and I liked it very much. Excellent and unique world building. Deep story with both humorous and dark red pill undertones. Great and interesting characters. Good art an character expressions. All the choices were meaningful and sound. Also I like the many medals to unlock.

This last chapter is the best as the great conspiracy and hidden truth about Zombie society is finally revealed in full. I like the political message and parallels you can draw to the real world. After all the Zombies as characters first created by George Romero were symbolic of the dulled consumer society. So this excellent interactive comic continues that tradition by using zombies as metaphor for the oblivious common citizens that while busy with consumerism and entertainment, have blind trust in their alienated governments that are a completely different class of people with different interests and tastes and use social engineering to manipulate and herd common people as expendable pawns.

I also like that if the player was smart and reached the best possible endings in previous episodes then it is possible for them to unlock all the medals in this third episode.

It's also great how almost all the major characters could either die or survive depending on player choices and the goofy sidekick possibly becoming an ignorant murdered out of his consumerism was the darkest and best part of the plot.

The subtle hints of humanity surviving deep in hearts of some Zombies is also great, like they still can fall in love despite not knowing the reason for that or how Margh sheds a tier for One-Eye - does he recognize him as his friend or relative from previous life as a human?

I spared the last half star for previous chapters due to minor technicalities like lack of full screen and an animated cursor. These little technical things do give or take from the overall experience. But I will rate this with full 5 stars anyway because the story and allegory is just so great in this. All the chapters got a smiling 5 Pico from me anyway.

Thank you for your passionate review!
I have to say, it's great when someone pays so much attention to the story he gest all the messages I've tried to send, even the most obscure ones.
Which you did. You're right on the mark on everything.

Thank you, it was really nice to read your review(s).

I do apologize for all of the recent questions on old games. But I was wondering how one would get "Worried Sidekick"? Does it have something to do with past game choices or what might it have to do with if you remember?
Thank you once more for making such wonderful games, and though this does feel a bit rushed it was still very good.
Though the ending does bring up more questions than answers. I would love to see more on One-Eye and Maro's relationship (and it One-Eye ever had a real name like Marco does) as well as how it's never been revealed to other zombies that the first "zombies" are humans. I
'm also curious about how long ago the zombie take over was. I appreciate seeing someone do a zombie uprise instead of a robot one, so thank you for that! Thank you for the beautiful story line as well.


Muja responds:

Your first question is very hard for me, because I really can't remember. It has something to do with your choices in previous episodes, and with your choice about violating the curfew or not... But I really can't help, sorry.

As for the other question... You probably already know, but Zombie Society is now a point & click series, and a desktop game will be released on Steam for Windows and Mac around February 2018.
That game will explore Margh's past, and provide the answers to almost all your questions.
Hope you'll have a chance to play it!

And thank you again for your nice review :)
