Zafehouse: Diaries / Re: Announcing Zafehouse Diaries 2!
« Last post by Banjo on February 03, 2017, 04:14:06 AM »
Just dropped by this forum by chance today and was thrilled to see this message. I really enjoyed the game (and indeed the original Zafehouse, which I still play my modded version of frequently) and had a TON of fun both playing the "vanilla" game and modding it myself. As long as the sequel as at least as moddable (if not more so!) and as much fun, I will be there on day one! Great to see Screwfly putting out new games again, after the downtime and troubles a few years back. Love your stuff!

Just to ask, though, will you be emailing those of us who bought the original Zafehouse Diaries (direct from you, since you can't know if we got it elsewhere, obviously) when the game is ready for release? That would be a good idea, I think. If not, is there a way to get notified when this happens? I'd hate to miss the release and any accompanying discount/special if there is one. I never even knew Fear Equation existed until today, but would have grabbed it from you directly if I hadn't missed the release special price... now I'm having to wait for a sale or GOG to pick that one up. Don't want that to happen with ZH2!

This is great news! Looking forward to the game :)

Please make sure Zafehouse Diaries 2 addresses one of the biggest issues of the original game: more option settings are needed to customize the game. Especially for an endless playthrough, it's important to allow customization of resources, scaling difficulty, survivor limit, etc.

Also, endless mode should not automatically mean easiest mode with no dilemmas (some of us love to play endless but also want a really difficult challenge!)
Technical support / I can't find the email to redownload the game. Help?
« Last post by Terra-bolt on December 10, 2016, 05:35:46 PM »
I had gotten the game a couple of months back and had decided to jump back into the game. I saw that it updated, so I got the file to do the update, though now it is telling me to redownload the game because of an error. I tried to find the email it came from but it must've gotten deleted from my email since then. Is there someway around this besides having to pay for the game again?

How long have you lasted before that happened?
Zafehouse: Diaries / Announcing Zafehouse Diaries 2!
« Last post by Logan on November 07, 2016, 11:21:55 AM »

Zafehouse Diaries is back! The cult hit from 2012 is now bigger, better and more terrifying than ever. Take control of a group of people - each with their own skills, motivations and prejudices - and try to survive the zombie apocalypse.
  • Every story is unique: Each game is procedurally generated - will your survivors work well together and complete their objectives?
  • Ordinary people, extraordinary situations: Keep your survivors happy and motivated, or they'll turn on each other.
  • All new engine: Zafehouse Diaries has been upgraded in every way. Full widescreen support, high resolution, a 3D environment and multi-platform support.
  • More of everything: Loads of new items, orders, events, occupations, dilemmas and scenarios.
  • Increased control: Equip your survivors and determine how they defend and breach locations.

We've also refined the relationship system so you can have more ways to change survivor interactions. We've replaced the rumour system with redemptions - one survivor can do certain tasks to 'redeem' themselves in the eyes of another, which removes a prejudice.

At its core, Zafehouse Diaries 2 is the same strategic drama simulator as the original, but it expands on it in every way: added content, upgraded engine, more surprises, more madness.

Stay tuned for updates by following us on Twitter and Facebook, or visiting the official Zafehouse website.
Technical support / 2.0.2 Wanderer Demand Bug
« Last post by armygamerofwar on October 04, 2016, 07:38:13 AM »
I've been playing more runs of fear equation recently and was really close to completing the game for the first time.  :(

Sadly when I was nearing sanctuary I came across a bug.

I was at the front of the train in front of the map at the time because i'd just set the next location.

I pressed tab to head to the head to bed since I thought it was guard duty.

I was brought in front of where you manage carriages and looked around confused for a couple minutes until i noticed on the computer that there was a message saying: Demand unsolved.

My first reaction was to check all the carriage messages. None of them were demands

I noticed every time i pressed tab it made me look where the wanderer demand usually is.

The problem? The demand was not there.  There was no demand on the table and I tried clicking where it usually is (multiple times) and nothing would happen.

Extra Information:
The wanderer I had picked up earlier in the game was the one that replenishes food and medical supplies based on fog levels.
I was playing on the lowest graphical settings
Zafehouse: Diaries / bombing?
« Last post by survivalists 2-1 on September 04, 2016, 02:14:28 PM »
I'm interested to know whether anyone else has survived long enough in the no escape survival mode to experience the military bombing a location? This event has also caused my game to be unable to save once this event concurred.
Fear Equation / [2.0.2] Linux version released!
« Last post by Logan on August 18, 2016, 03:20:21 PM »
Fear Equation has been updated to version 2.0.2! This patch marks the release of the Linux version of the game.

While we can only officially support Ubuntu 12.04, the game should run on a variety of distributions. A Linux technical demo is available if you'd like to check if the game is compatible with your setup:,890.0.html

We've received a number of requests from players asking for a full, customised allotment of passengers and as of 2.0.2, this is now possible! The custom game screen has been tweaked to support up to 150 player-made passengers.

Finally, for Steam users, we've added five achievements based on the mysterious Wanderers. Time to harness the power of the fog for your own ends...

The changelog for 2.0.2 can be found below:
  • Added: Fear Equation is now available on Linux. Please note the game is only officially supported on Ubuntu 12.04.
  • Added: It is now possible to have up to 150 custom passengers. The passenger tabs have been replaced with a list that can be sorted by name, occupation and priority.
  • Added: (Steam only) Five new achievements based on Wanderer interactions.
  • Fixed: A typo in the beacon report.
  • Fixed: An issue with Wanderers as carriage leaders.
  • Fixed: An issue with passengers being killed while attacking a Wanderer.
  • Performance: Optimisations to SMAA (anti-aliasing).
  • Performance: Small optimisation to bloom effect.
It is recommended you start a new game after updating, as saved games may not be compatible between versions.

Note to Mac OS X users: You will need to install Mono in order to run the update. The latest version of Mono for OS X can be downloaded here.
