Happyscrub wants you to check out Zafehouse

I saw this game pop up a few times and people saying that it was like FTL (which it didn't look like at first). I tried it out and was pleased. It's like FTL as far as strategy, commanding crew, and the giant random/unknown factor. The difference is that this is turned based and no animation.

I wanna support this game because it has potential. I say potential because it still needs some polishing up (it feels like a beta). I checked the forums and the developer has been actively making changes to the game.

I liked it so much that I'm half compelled to make a beginners tip video because the manual was kinda lacking.

I tried to get ppl here to try it once, and even mentioned it in threads about FTL, but alas, nobody seems to be interested. Even you didn't get any replies so far.

I like it more than FTL but people seem to get the idea that zombie games all the same, and that gets boring. I think the same as well, but not ALL zombie games are top down shooters or FPSes. Games like Zafehouse and The Walking Dead (the good one) prove that unique zombie games can be found, and that zombie games can actually be good.

Good luck finding interested people though. I've tried and failed, but maybe you can do better.

Heck, it was probably one of my posts you saw that made you want to try it out. I am pleased you decided to listen and erm, try it out. Now you see that I am right about it being similar to FTL. I haven't played it since I got Zafehouse.

It could of been you maybe. I saw the comment about it a few days ago on this board, which prompted me to look at youtube videos of the game. I tried it out because of the gameplay videos I saw.

Maybe you should also mention that GOG has it for $4.99 right now, and it's ending in 10 hours.

I am sorry, Happyscrub. You've tried, but it's always the same result, just like me.

A zombie game that doesn't show any zombies? What the hell.

But you don't even know what fighting games are. Doubt you played FTL or this.
