Really amazing game! Interesting concept, difficult and requires thinking. I'd really love to purchase this game, really worth it. But there are some points I would like to talke about: Difficulty: I have noticed many people find the game difficult and even impossible. But I have played this game a few times already and managed to beat it. It's not impossible, but really challenging, and might take a few tries.
The supply system: It's not broken at all. In fact, once I got the hang of it, I managed to find so many supplies to survive for about 4 days in a row doing nothing. The supply drop rate is ok, you just need to plan ahead carefully and sometimes split the team to look in 2 areas each, but being careful about the strenght balancing and weaponry. One thing I agree with the rest is that the hydroponic farm upgrade series are really not worth it. I think a 40% chance of creating supplies would be ok, but right now I think it's much smaller than that and a little bit like it in the last tier. It really neads some tweaking but its nothing too serious.
Beating the game: Everything else about beating the game is fine, even the zombies difficulty. It's easy at the beggining but starts getting worse around day 5 or 6.
But overall it's a really nice game. I'd just like the hydroponic farm to be tweaked, which is pretty much the only issue here, the rest of the game is nice, fun and challenging so keep up the good work! Hope to see more content on the game once it's out! Thanks for the amazing game.
Hint for those who cannot beat the game: Split your team. If you want to move to an area with harmless zombies you can just send 2 or even 1 of your survivors (if you're feeling confident) and make sure you take someone who can search fast with you. That's pretty much the trick, making teams when there is no danger and taking the whole team if the are you're going to is frantic or higher. Also, do not spend points in the hydroponic farm, it's really not worth it. You get enough supplies buying them from the merchant or doing split-loots. The best thing to work on the workshop right now is the weapon upgrade. Just keep working on it, it's really going to pay off and you're going to be able to survive on the later stages of the game. I have already beaten the game 2 times, so it's a proven strategy. Good luck!
