Okay cool, better to get it while it's cheap - even if you can't play it for a while I rekon (we have no idea how long this deal will last).

Well, let me know the story tonight then Mark, and if it's okay with you, get the 2 pack and I will reimburse you when I next see you.

I need to sort out the new router and get a server up as well.

I managed to get in a few hours on this yesterday and was pleasantly surprised. Sure, it's alpha - and it shows, but it also plays fairly well too.

My first day was spent running around aimlessly trying to find supplies, weapons and a town to serve as a "safe-haven". I approached a settlement and cleared out the zombies (they are easy to dispatch during the day - but turn into savages at night). I barricaded the front door with a sofa, some chairs and cushions. As night time fell, a swarm of zombies tore straight through my barricade made out of cloth and killed me. O dear.

Day 2 was spent attempting to "mine" rock for resources - in the hope that I could create a better shelter. After mining and collecting about 20 "stone blocks", I used an existing derelict house as a base, and filled in all the holes to make it more defensible. As night time fell I stood there, back to the wall, waiting for the zombies to bash down my assumed weak spot. I heard a loud smash and the wall behind me crumbled. Zombies poured in. I emptied my shotgun of ammo and was killed.

Still in the middle of the night, I spawned in the middle of nowhere. Zombies plowed in from everywhere. I was totally unprepared for this and died again.

Day 3. I finally figured out on day 3 that any items in your "belt"/hotbar are lost when you die, but everything else in your inventory is not. I wish I had known this before putting ALL my weapons in my belt for quick access :-(. Anyway, upon opening the inventory screen I noticed something I had not seen/looked at properly yet. Crafting. I had enough materials to craft some metal doors, sleeping bag, metal sheets and cobbled stone. I made as much stuff as I could.

This is where my journey ended, and means I am prepared (as preparation is key) for my next trek out... :-)

I can foresee this being quite a good little game with a few of us in it, helping out. Similar to DayZ, there is not much else to do other than "survive" at the moment though. Let us hope the future patches help this.

Sounds like you did better than me there Greg. I didn’t get a chance to do any crafting in the end as I kept getting attacked by Dobermans before I could find a gun.

Yeah, they are gits. And the gigantic mutant flies are a 'mare as well.

FYI: Crafting appears at the top of your inventory screen. Click on a blueprint and it brings up a block of squares for you to put stuff in to craft the item. You have to mess about and guess what to use at first. E.G Cobbled Stone block requires 4 regular stone blocks, Sleeping Bag requires cloth etc. When you have created it once, the blueprint will turn green and you won't need to remember what to use to craft it (it will automatically fill in the squares with items in your inventory) - which is very handy.

Stuff shows up (or not) depending on what you have in your inventory.

Another hot tip: right-clicking on a stack of items (this can be done repeatedly) alters the stack size, so you can grab just 1 item instead of the whole stack etc.

EDIT: Just found this page on all the craftable items - may come in handy.

This is worth a read.

Some tips I gleaned from it:

- Sleeping bags are positionable respawn points;
- Torches slow down Zombies;
- You can build storage boxes to store stuff (handy!);
- Zombies go "28 days later-style" not only at night time, but in the dark too. So torches are verrrrrry handy.

All good info, and all stuff that I had no idea existed! No word from Dyson about the games or indeed if he will even be about on Friday but no biggy. I am sure we can have a good crack at it with just the two of us.

Cool, well it's there if he fancies it. Can;t blame him for not wanting to buy it if he just shelled out for DayZ.

I suppose you are right, as there is an uneven number of us he would end up playing £30 for it. He might turn up for a bit of DayZ.

Jen will probably still fancy a go over the weekend at some point.
