Life in the Zombie Apocalypse:

Day 1 with State of Decay

Just finished day one with State of Decay, and what a day it was! I have been looking forward to this game for such a long time, and it has not let me down. It may not be perfect, but it is fun, and that’s the important bit.

I started out by more or less “goofing around,” learning the controls and getting the lay of the land. After getting Marcus, Maya, Ed, and some other survivor (whose name I forgot) killed, I decided to start over, settle down, and start playing for keeps. This time around, I’ve only managed to get Maya killed (Mercy kill after a busted leg refused to get better). I still need to get a doctor for poor Ed, because he’s not getting better.

My takeaway after day 1?

  • Screamers don’t scare me. Ferals only scare me if I’m low on stamina. Big ‘uns, on the other hand? Yikes!
  • Favorite Car: The modern sedan. It has the right balance of strength, speed, and handling.
  • Favorite Combat Style: Melee. Haven’t decided between blunt or edged weapons yet, but I’m not a big fan of the heavy weapons.

Looking forward to day two! Plans include the possibility of packing up and moving to a new home, as well as fetching that doctor for Ed.
