Hello residents of Survival City! This week's update is an especially exciting one as the next chapter of Survival City is released. Four new locations have been added to the game: The Bank, Grocery, Clinic and Depot for you to explore. These new locations will stretch out beyond the previous tier of locations and will feature new zombies, new items and new events! To allow further testing of this extra content, I've also increased the length of the demo from 30 days up to 45 days!
There are also quite a few balance changes to the game in this patch as well. Libraries now have a slightly better chance of giving weapons. Using bandages and other medical items efficiency is now based off the highest First Aid stat in the group (an overall buff). Survivors with the Hermit trait now get the same penalties for traveling 3 blocks away as they do for 2 block searches. Negative traits are less punishing with their dialogue events. There are also numerous bug fixes in this update too! All of these changes have been outlined in the patch notes file included.
I'm also going to try to release new versions for Mac and Linux. I don't have a way to test out these new formats so if you play them on non-Windows systems, please let me know if they work! The next updates will see new events added to the Tier 2 locations and possibly updated artwork for the boss zombies (they currently use placeholders). So check out alpha version 1.09 and tell me what you think!
