    If you don't have it, it's 25% off on Steam today.

    Had another successful run after just 25 days, which was oddly disappointing. The first one above was something like 45 days.

    That was one thing in the 25-day game, it started with the cold weather on day one. The shelter already had a furnace in it, though, otherwise I might not have made it out of the first week. Don't know if those are randomly generated - in which case I got extremely lucky - or if it's a default when you start with cold weather, which I suspect is the deal.

    Just in case this game wasn't depressing enough:

    I just purchased it on Steam for 60% off ($7.99) - it's that price through the 9th. Not sure when I'll have time to get into it, but at that price figured I needed to pick it up.

    Edit: Just made some time - played it for 90 minutes. I am finishing up Day 5 and no problems yet with my trio. Things are too quiet.

    They've been doing Stories expansions for this game. Basically, they're much more heavily scripted playthroughs. The first one involved a man looking for his missing loved one and was, predictably, dark and grim but felt very different. The second one came out yesterday and lets you control the radio broadcaster and has a different vibe. You play as a husband and wife - the husband is the crippled radio broadcaster and can't leave the house (or go up and down stairs, which is a challenge). The wife goes out and collects info for him to broadcast as news and you have the choice whether to pass on totally accurate info and risk angering the military or sanitize the news a bit and allow the military's atrocities to go unpunished. It's really quite great and, as is normal with this game, there's no good or correct solution.

    Oh and there's a free patch which opens up new levels and characters in the base sandbox game and it's stupidly cheap if you haven't played it yet.

    One of the few games I keep going back to over and over. It’s so good.
