Find a Survivor Van in April and Share to win even more!!

We are preparing the release of the April challenge.  I would like to ask for some help in promoting the contest, and announce a “contest within a contest” idea that I had. Obviously, word of mouth is very helpful to indie developers like me who can;t afford big money ads. So if every player that actually finds the survivor van could post a screenshot or share the experience somehow, share with me via Facebook or this forum how they chose to promote the find, I am going to pick the best THREE and award them with a Pretty amazing free IAP and a Survivor Z T-Shirt. Here’s how you do it: 1. Find the van 2. Get a screenshot or somehow visually depict the found van (proof you found it) 3. Promote/share it however you choose, your favorite social media, blog, youtube, whatever. 4. Send me a link to your promo/share via our Survivor Z Facebook page or this thread.https://www.facebook.com/ZDAYapp I will choose 3 that I feel are most effective and most original. IAP will be given out after end of contest (April 15) and T-shirts are limited to Continental US players only. Thank you and good luck!! ED...

ZDay Survival Simulator gets major update!

Posted by on Mar 4, 2014 in Blog, Events, Reviews - ZDAY Survival Simulator, Updates and News | 0 comments

The text based zombie survival game “ZDay Survival Simulator” is getting a major update this week.  Version 3.0 is expected to be available next week. “The new version is much more than just a patch or an update, it’s a complete overhaul from top to bottom.” said Ed Anderson, Creator of ZDay Survival Simulator and Survivor Z.  “The engine is completely new, and a hundred times more sophisticated than the previous one.  it’s like going from a mechanical typewriter to a super computer in terms of the game’s sophistication.” The game’s engine is the same as that found in Survivor Z, with some elements disabled such as online play and required location data.  Players will notice similarities to the interface, which now gives them the ability to control their inventory, arm their NPC (non-player characters) with weapons.  In addition, the challenge content has been changed to accommodate the new engine and it’s vastly improved capabilities to record and respond to user input.   There is also over 30% more new content in the game, meaning challenges will be harder, and more expansive than in previous versions. The new version will include iAds at the bottom of the screen on iPhone 5 and...

Survivor Z 2.6.1 update will add very cool new features

Survivor Z 2.6.1 update will add very cool new features

Always working to improve and innovate, the developers and designers at Mongadillo are uploading an update to Survivor Z that will give survivors the ability to relocate their safe house and to craft guard dogs that can be used as NPCs. These are just two new features that the upcoming release of Survivor Z will include, as well as some fixes in the code that may have caused survivors to lose items under certain circumstances due to intermittent internet connectivity. The release is expected in a week, pending the approval of the App Store. Safe houses up to now have been fixed positions that cannot be moved, and some players who have been playing for almost a year and have compiled huge collections of supplies, weapons and tools have complained that after relocating to a new house or changing jobs that they want to move their safe house and all of its contents but can’t. This update addresses that, but in true “Survivor” fashion, it’s not made easy. Players have to physically drag their safe house across the map, and drop it into its new location. When asked about why the method was implemented in this way, Ed Anderson, the game’s designer replied, “A move of more than 100 miles could take a few minutes, which we don’t think is that big of a deal, considering what it is you are doing.” Guard dogs are another much anticipated item. A lot of players were able to find a dog in the special “Christmas Day” challenge, and have asked if there is any way to make the dog more useful. Guard dogs will be craftable in the new release, but staying true to form, the developers do not divulge crafting recipes, but instead tend to refer players to their own resourcefulness, which these days manifests itself into forums, online wikis, and chatrooms. Guard dogs will be the same class as NPCs, though they will not be able to use weapons, they will be helpful in helping the player stay alive. The new update is scheduled to be released the week of February...

Survivor Z allows survivors to explore San Francisco with “City Pass”

Today Survivor Z creator Ed Anderson announced a new and exciting innovation that will allow players to explore a specific remote location instead of their actual location. The selected City is San Francisco, California, where over 300 unique real world locations exist as well as a special challenge written for the Metreon mall.  Player are expected to come in contact with other rival survivors as they fight for control of the city.  A leaderboard will be published to show who has the most strongholds and holds the title “King of San Francisco”.  Survivors can take over strongholds and capture as many locations as possible to compete for the title against other survivors. The City Pass is easy to use, it functions just like a Downloaded encounter, the player can replay it to go back to the City by the Bay sty any time, and leave if things get too scary.  And for only $2, it’s the cheapest travel deal you will ever find.  ...
