Patch v1.2.0: The ultimate test of post-apocalyptic survival
Release date: Available now
Stuck in a remote, abandoned town, you must lead five survivors with conflicting motivations, fragile relationships and fiery prejudices to safety from the roving undead. A sophisticated procedural engine generates new survivors, towns and content so every adventure is a different experience, and you can use built-in editors to add real people and locations to the game.

Are you prepared for the coming zombie apocalypse? Purchase the full version of Zafehouse: Diaries directly from us today[] and be ready for the shambling hordes!

Get Zafehouse: Diaries the moment it's Greenlit
No waiting months, years or never, Zafehouse: Diaries is available right now, so once it's approved on Greenlight, we'll be ready to publish on Steam. If you'd like to buy the game from Screwfly Studios (see the link above) we'll be happy to provide you with a key so you can activate the game on Steam. Desura and GamersGate will also distribute Steam keys to anyone who buys it on their services.

  • Deal with the volatile relationships of your survivors by strategically assigning them to tasks, siding with them on difficult decisions or seeding rumours about their past

  • Built-in editors make it easy to add yourself and your friends to the game. Create your own survival horror story in your hometown
  • Unique diary interface records each action, choice and disaster. Save your heroic story and share it with others

Zafehouse: Diaries is a fresh take on the zombie / survival horror genre. If you're sick of mindless shooters or generic-looking top down affairs that just don't get what the zombie genre is about, this is the game for you.

It's a great game, I'd buy it on steam but I got it on a few weeks ago. Still those that haven't got it buy it!
