Okay, I'm mad. I spent numerous hours playing this game. With the trick of opening and closing the window, I could reset the areas to get what I needed. I played areas over and over again to get car batteries and duct tape. I also managed to get 2 fellow survivors to help play, for a total of 6. In addition, I made sure every area had turrets I could emplace to help get my game.
I spent a lot of time, and on day 17, I had enough of everything. I went back to my base for the final time, fixed the car, and then started going full tilt on the final upgrades I needed and then I suddenly DIED. All I needed was a food upgrade and to test the armor and then I would have left but for NO REASON, I get a death screen.
Worst of all, I don't know what happens when you leave in the car. Bad enough this is a perma-death game but just getting a random total party kill is absolutely infuriating. You shouldn't have game crashes like that.
Totally killed my enjoyment. I wish I had never played this stupid game.
