This is such a great game. A zombie survival and choose your own adventure format with an RPG feel, perfect for casual and committed gamers. You play as a survivor in a city overrun with a human population either infected, dead & upright, or other. Each decision you make leads to one or more possible effects on your character. You choose how you want to play by improving stats in specific skill-sets, then leverage those skills to aid in deciding your path.
The game has eight possible endings. Many times I have played (on Normal), each time finishing with "Grade F" or "Grade F-". Even games where I found the most basic ending or I felt I was really close to better ending...still an "F". Not one "D-" even. Naturally, after playing through several times, I started to find my path. Focusing on skills found to assist in my path early on, such as Firearms, Melee, Lock-picking, and Computers, I happened to find one of the endings. Not to mention, as a computer nerd, this ending seems plausible somehow. (For when the zombies actually take over.)
There were a couple times I searched the Internet for forums or posts regarding gameplay tips. Results were scarce. I didn't want a walk-through...just some tips, specifically around resting and training. With my experience, training early on and building those four skills just mentioned, eventually I was able to hack and lock-pick certain decisions with expected outcomes. I was able to keep exploring without having to spend so many days resting and training. This was highly advantageous when the days become limited. In addition, I stumbled upon a way to delay the meltdown at the nuclear plant. Major sigh-of-relief here. 😉
I'll have to now find a few other endings, but I feel confident in doing so based on the strategy of increasing important skills early and often prior to deep exploration. =]
