For the record, this is an excellent game.

Fair auditory warning though: The sound effects are very jarring for anyone who has high auditory sensitivity, for any reason (like me). The game is silent until it suddenly isn't, and the sounds are mixed to be rather loud, too. I had music playing in another tab to pad the silence, and my master volume at 50%, and this was still an issue. Let's just say that I'm extremely thankful that the player character pumps the shotgun before firing.

HOWEVER: Sound is not necessary to play! If your browser allows you to mute a tab's audio, then you can safely do so, without risk of taking a disadvantage!

AGAIN, this game is EXCELLENT. I'm extremely impressed by how interactive and engaging it is with its combat, given that it's choice-based. The game dev obviously took the quality time to optimize and polish this up for us.

I was told this was a shoot-em-up interactive fiction title; I had my doubts going in, but Sam Ursu absolutely delivered in style!

Interesting use of formatting on the choicescript! Alas, the zombies got us (apparently I'm not very good with an axe.)

An innovative use of choicescript for sure! I didn’t manage to survive the apocalypse, alas.

I had a bit of a hard time getting past eating 66 cans of food in a couple of seconds, but I guess it is appropriate for the “arcade” feel. :)

From a design perspective, I had a bit of a hard time reading the text. The bright orange background was really distracting for me personally, and I didn’t like that I couldn’t override it or change my font size with the Choicescript settings menu.

A very interesting game. The sound effects are a nice touch. I believe this is the first ChoiceScript game I have played.
