Zombie Exodus Part 5 Walkthrough, Chapter 5 and Epilogue

As part of a contest posted on Facebook and Twitter, a reader of Zombie Exodus wrote a walkthrough of the final battle scene in chapter 5 as well as guidelines for achieving all nine endings. This walkthrough and guide was written by Natalie, whose prize will be to create a recurring non-player character in Zombie Exodus: Safe Haven.

I have also written some extra tips written after each section. And now, the walkthrough… Continue reading

Announcing Zombie Exodus: Safe Haven

Announcing Zombie Exodus: Safe Haven

The next interactive story I am working on is a companion ZE entitled, Zombie Exodus: Safe Haven. Taking place at the same time as the events of ZE, Zombie Exodus: Safe Haven will feature all new characters in a new area of the United States.

Here are some features planned so far:

  • New and reworked attributes: strength, dexterity, agility, stamina, charisma, intellect, willpower, perception.
  • 20 professions. Pick from old favorites (Scientist, Athlete, Soldier) or new ones (Homemaker, Teenager, Doctor, Criminal).
  • 18 skills, including crafting, scavenging, stealth, and survival. Each skill has 5 ranks.
  • Physical and mental resource stats, such as Mental Health and Fatigue.
  • An optional Weakness, such as a physical disability, phobia, or addiction.
  • Play through Day 0 of the Zombie Apocalypse. Survive the first week as the infection spreads, scavenging through such locations as a pharmacy, camping store, military base, and hospital.

Twelve chapters are planned in one app (no parts).

The Continuing Saga of Zombie Exodus Part V

Zombie Exodus Part V went to my publisher, Choice of Games, at the end of September, and as many of you have noticed, the apps are still not updated.  Here’s the bad news and good news:

The Bad

Part V will be delayed a few more weeks. In my final review, Choice of Games had some editorial comments that need to be addressed before releasing the rest of the game.

Before you post, I’ll say it for you: I suck, my games suck, I lie.

The Good

Due to the changes I need to make, I will be publishing all final chapters, comprising Part V and the Epilogue. What is the Epilogue? It was originally scheduled as an additional chapter to tie everything up that would be out in a few months. Now, it will be included with the November release.

Also good news — for all you iOS users (iPhone, iPad, iPod Touch), I am coding Achievements which will show up in Gamecenter.

Final good news — I have a hard deadline of October 22 to have all of Part V to Choice of Games. They will then package it up and send it to the App stores who generally take two weeks to release it.

The Truth

Since many ask, I work on Zombie Exodus largely by myself. I write the story, code it, and test it myself. I do all marketing and pay for graphics. So far, I am just about breaking even in the two years I have worked on it. Granted, I don’t do it for the money but am motivated by the creative process and sharing a story. Though not motivated by money, I still want to produce a great product and do it in a timely manner. I apologize for the delays, and if I could do anything to get the game out sooner, I can only ask you to trust that I would.

Finally, thank you to all who have tested or provided feedback on Zombie Exodus. It’s been a ton of fun to interact with many of you, and I truly think it has improved the game.

Part 5 Release Scheduled for September, 2013

After discussing the publishing schedule with Choice of Games, it looks like Part 5 will be released in September, 2013.  There is a ton of content I have to add to finish the many story-lines and provide suitable endings. Plus, I have  a considerable number of features to add that have been requested by readers.

I work on Zombie Exodus at least 2-3 hours a day, while still working a full-time job. So hang in there, and hopefully the beta chapters hold you over!
