I know I’ve posted about the game a few times now, but after being irritated by the Fraps FPS counter I realised I could record a video of my gameplay for anyone interested but not yet willing to part with a fiver to play it. So, for all you cheapskates, here is the tech demo tutorial. The text is easier to read in HD and full screen.

Here’s the short intro dialogue:

And the gameplay stuff, part one:

I had originally planned on uploading footage of the game from the moment it loads, but the recording was split into 6 rather large video files and I’ve spent far too long trying to get it to work as it is, so these will have to do.

If you feel like I’ve spoiled something by showing the end, I haven’t. This is just the tutorial and can be skipped in different ways. This is actually almost certain death as far as I’m aware, so it certainly doesn’t spoil the “story” – the game isn’t really supposed to have an overall narrative anyway, just a series of stories from individuals you encounter while making your own.

I would have cut the ending as a cliffhanger if video editing wasn’t such a monumental pain in the arse, mind. I should also stress that the game is infinitely more fun when you’ve done this and you’re let loose and trying to survive. It isn’t easy!

  1. what you do is when the radio comes on turn off the oven and hide in the purple room upstairs then wait for the man to go and say “howdy neighbor” and you walk behind him after leaving the room and smack him with the hammer you will then have saved your wife then you loot his body like a normal container you will get a shotgun some shells and a bat dont use the shotgun unless compulsary as it draws a large crowd and combine the bat with the hammer and some nails to get spike bat longer range then the axe and a lil more damage with the added perk of knock back =D
