Contains content that may not be suitable for persons under age 10. If this were a movie, it would probably be between G and PG.

The zombies are dead, the vampire army ran out of sunblock, and the giant killer robot's clearly labeled self-destruct button was pushed. Now the world lies in ruins, and you must search for other survivors. You think there may be someone hiding in the woods outside the city...

The writing picks itself up with decent humor, but the story is vague and soulless. I feel like there are multiple ways to progress through the story by using the items just from my one playthrough, but the story itself needs to be more compelling and provide motivation other than the standard zombie apocalypse fare. If you expanded on the story and the resulting adventure this would score higher with me.

Lot of potential here and it was a good read - the writing was mature and there were some funny parts. I couldn't find a use for a lot of the items, though, so I must have missed something, and I pretty much found a house and ended the game without getting into any adventures. I did like the details you put into the work; e.g., the comments on the items.

This isn't terrible by any stretch of the imagination but it's lacking exactly that: Imagination. Your writing is alright, a few errors and typo's but no spectacular failures there, although nothing expansive. It's a little annoying that you got all your friends on here to play and they all gave you high ratings (when this is a 5 at best.. it's way too short and there's nothing special with it at all) but that's not really your fault. I like how you used the advanced editor but I'd like to see some more effort next time. This was just too short and bland.

Ehhh. Decent game I suppose. No real challenges and whilst the initial story blurb was funny, there really wasn't much humor (aside from the dialogue when you try to piss near the dead bodies). Maybe a 3/8

Lol, towards the beginning I tried to go to the hills with only the bike, and encountered a zombie. Used the bike item thinking I'd just ride past him, instead used the bike as a weapon and threw it at the zombie xD.

Overall good story game.
