  • Summary: You see before you a textdriven zombie survival game, which has a lot of great ideas, all of them poorly executed. Every action you take with your character(s) will be written down in diary, so you can go back and review informations gathered about certain locations for example. You can even bookmark the pages, so you do not have to search endlessly. The worldmap is a town with a bunch of buildings, which all have some purpose.

  • Summary: I'm deeply sorry to downplay and criticise a very inspired and very interesting indie game like this one. But from playing version 1.51, my excitement from the early hours of play transformed into a great frustration upon realising it was so overly and hurtfully difficult, perhaps plainly impossible, hence making it a very depressing waste of my time and disposition and whatnot.

  • Summary: It's a real shame that this game promises so much, and fails at every hurdle. I was excited to see a 'text based game' which roguelike elements bringing something fresh to the zombie craze that seems to be going on but I was quickly disappointed. Even creators of rouglelike games understand there has to be SOME method to the madness and there is none in this. EVERYTHING is randomly generated.

  • Summary: Its very fun at the begining but after 2 hours of playing it you get frustated with this game. Randomly generated stuff ruins the game,after you got screwed by this randomness a big number of times you get bored with the game, and having your save file deleted after you lose doesnt make it any better since you cant improve on a little mistake. I dont recommend this game I have played for 10 hours and I havent managed to win or get very close.

  • Summary: I have been following this game since it first appeared on the steam green light. and in the end, I like what I got. This is not a game I'd recommend to everyone, but the simple fact that I like text based adventures, is perfect, since this is one of the best ones I have every played. All the people complaining that the randomness sucks. Shut the hell up, random events happen, GET OVER IT. or would you rather the same thing happen over and over again?

  • Summary: While this game isn't terrible and certainly is an interesting concept, most occurrences seem largely random and game play really becomes boring once you've gotten screwed by the random generator too many times. Direction is pretty weak and some aspects seem really overly complicated. I'm sure the developers will make adjustments and it'll probably get better. For now, it's definitely just a 5, though, because I just didn't have very much fun playing it.

  • Summary: 'Zafehouse. Diaries' is a hard game to rate, as it's a very mixed bag. It's zombie survival with an old school, heavily text based interface. If that concept doesn't scare you away immediately, then it could be worth a try. It's also very difficult by modern standards, though that's mostly a good thing in my book (though an easier setting for learning the ropes might have been nice). What really kept me from rating this higher was the rather clunky interface.

  • Summary: The idea for the game was decent, however... i'm not a big fan of purely RNG(Random Number Generator) games. And this is quite literally 80% RNG if not more. Setup traps, barricades, have rifles/pistols? Well you know those 2 survivors you just sent out to get some supplies from next door that you just cleared with the whole group and raided an hour ago?

  • Summary: I was actually VERY impressed with the game. It is worth noting that this is a text based tactical game so it won't be to everyone's standards but in itself it is exceptionally gripping. The ability it design your own survivors and locations that are used in game is a wonderful idea that is executed perfectly. More and more content is constantly being added and the designers seem to be well in touch with the community.

  • Summary: Zafehouse: Diaries is a text-based game with a Graphical User Interface which focuses on survival in a small town after a most of the inhabitants have been turned into zombies. You assign five survivors tasks that they will perform when you end your turn. When a turn has been ended, zombies move around the city and the survivors either perform their jobs or become distracted by things such as infighting, receiving wounds and zombie attacks.
