Played and loved the first game. Can't wait for you guys to finish making this masterpiece!


Is this compatible with Xbox 360 controllers and can you use a keyboard and xbox controller at the same time for 2 player?

Yes and yes.

Im having a bit of trouble setting it up.... Does this work on mac? (Yes im a mac gamer...) But thx for letting me know it's compatible!

What part isn't working? The xbox 360 controller or the 2 player? It should all be working right on macs.

deberian de tratar de ponerlo e ps4


The game has this nice feel of being scary but at the same time not being scary, the character customization is just awesome to play with(as you see in the video :) ) and the art style is awesome, the VHS feel is just nostalgic and the subtle roguelike elements give it a nice touch.

Check out my video too :)


exciting game in retro style. Great detail and I really like the selection of music. I just did not like intro at the beginning of the game, I think that the original version of the television broadcast was better, it gave the atmosphere before the game. But that's just my opinion. Good luck in your future work!)

this game is lit, should be free with some season pass or something once it is finished

    • Love it.

       Still needs some polishing here and there,but the main idea is great...Waiting for the full version :)

    Thanks. This build is from october so there have been lots of changes since then.
    Anything in perticular you think needs polish?


    nice little apocalpse game :D

    its a little to easy to fight the boss

    Can't wait. And can I just say how much the game's changed for the better between demos? Any word of console releases? I'd love to see this on PS4, preferably with PS Vita cross-buy. Keep up the awesome work!!


    its cool there is a sequel but games like this usally never gets sequels i dont like demos cause of their lack of replaybility 


    I love it



    I gave this a try, and I was pleasantly surprised at how fun it was. I do hope this does get finished, because the demo has left me craving more.


    3 survivors enter...3 survivors laugh, have fun oh and shoot zombies...lot of fun to be had!

    I am confused about multiplayer.  Does it require more than one computer with this game downloaded, or does it require one computer and multiple controllers or something?


    Sorry for the very late reply. Same computer multiple control pads.

    are ps4 controllers compatible?

    You would need to download custom drivers to make them interact with the computer. I think you are also supposed to download a program like "xpadder" or "joytokey" to map the control buttons to keyboard.
    I have never done this myself (I use third party controllers that are already compatible).


    PS4 pads are supported. I think you might need a driver but no program like "xpadder" or "joytokey" is needed.


    God, it feels like I've been waiting for this game for like a decade


    Made a finale 


    Made a video




    I played this game on the day it first hit itch.io, and i must say, its fantastic. cant wait for it to be released



    my support for this game!


    :D nice meet you ,,hope have key full game :P lol
