Zombies With Substance! Zafehouse: Diaries Out Now, 33% Off Until Monday

Well, we did it. We made a game. After 12 months of hard work, our first title, Zafehouse: Diaries is out in the wild. It's been a protracted, challenging affair, first tackling the needs of the Classification Board and then braving the uncharted waters of Steam Greenlight. But it's done!

What's been gratifying is the response we've received — not only on our Greenlight page, but our own forums and other communities that have picked it up. Building a game from scratch and seeing it through to completion is one thing, but having people honestly enjoy it is immensely fulfilling. What's better is when they engage with you, taking an active interest in improvements, tweaks and additions.

I don't know why I waited so long to make the leap into indie development and I wouldn't give it up for anything.

If you'd like to procure Zafehouse: Diaries post-haste and at an extremely reasonable price, you and your wallet are in luck. Until Monday, we're selling the game at a discounted rate of $US9.95, at which time it'll jump back to $US14.95. It's our way of rewarding early adopters, the guys that have been with us from the beginning and helped us iron out the major issues before launch by playing the demo.

(Of course, anyone can take advantage of the sale.)

Thanks to you guys, too, for all the positive comments and suggestions you've provided since I started the weekend editor gig and my adventures into independent games development. Having Kotaku as an outlet has, at times, provided me with some perspective and a way to get my emotions, thoughts and concerns out into the open.

    Had a crack at the demo. The UI stumped me for a few seconds, then the pieces rapidly fell into their enjoyable place. Definitely a game I could sink time into.
    Congrats on getting it out there.

    Congrats on finishing man!
    Currently playing too many other games to fit this in, but gonna give the demo a go in the near future.
    Hopefully its successful enough to fund a new project. If so, get it on Kotaku again! Would be keen to follow your development progress again.

    Bought the game, but I'm rarely able to actually finish a game due to the constant crashes and errors. Did you guys even test this before releasing it? It's great, WHEN IT WORKS.

    Just bought the game and I am loving it :)
    I don't seem to be having any error like AussieSniper, seems fine on my windows 7 64 bit machine.
    Although I did have issues playing the demo. Closed the game and then opened it and it worked fine after that...
