After almost 2 and a half years it is finished! Well, it's not completely finished, there are some known bugs I've ignored, but hopefully nothing that makes it unplayable In

Game Details
SZC1 you wake up in a city with no memory. You are fighting monsters and zombies. In this new game the story continues right after the last one left off. It shouldn’t be much of a problem if you haven’t played SZC1, the intro summarizes the first game.

- Original Sound Track by Phanoo (
- More gameplay time, should take you one or two hours to complete the game.
- Improved physics
- New weapons and enemies
- 3D sound environment
- New lightning system, pretty cool flashlight effect
- Vehicles added
- Voice radio communication between enemy soldiers (Thx Radix)

- Game freezes after doctor administers morphine
- Game freezes after the train passes guards

- Killing enemies should no longer result in two dead bodies
- flaming zombie duplication fix. Zombies should no longer duplicate when catching fire
- Zombies now causes 1hp damage
- Pumping arteries in core crash site removed to prevent later puzzle confusion
- Added blockade on lvl's where one could leave the play field
- Various overlapping GFX glitches removed
- Text box position corrected
- Game over sequence is no longer buggy.

- added sound details:
+ train loop
+ execution sound
+ heli sound
+ heli alarm sound

(Main download has also been patched. If the patch installation confuses you, I suggest you just download the main download again, sorry )

lol, when one of my squad guys got executed behind the lorry and there was no sound, it was like 'oh'.

... Is the music from Final Fantasy 6 and Silent Hill?
Posted by Reno 5th March, 2008

FF6 to my believe
Posted by Dustin Gunn 5th March, 2008

the sound seems to be missing in a lot of places, among the various other bugs.

Also I don't know what to do after taking the elevator down in the core level

The on-rails snow scooter section was a big missed opportunity. I would've happily played that for a lot longer.

This is fun, it's awfully scruffy though. But I guess when you spend such a long time on a game you can get eager to finish it and move on.

Anyway I like! it creates a nice bleak atmosphere despite the cartoony graphics.

@ Bill and Reno: The music is original, it was done by Phanoo, he says he was inspired by FF
@ Dustin: Where are you exactly? In the core-labs?
@ Andy: I will make some final touches before I start promoting the game at other pages. I'm using you guys as test players Image

Hmm, I'm a bit stuck now, too. I got through a part where I put a metal box over a big blue thing's vein. Then went downstairs or something and there is more of the same stuff, except doing that doesn't help. Am I missing something?

You have to shoot the small blue pumping arteries

Great atmosphere in most parts. You have the feel of the game nailed, I think. It's all let down by the buggy, awkward engine.

I had great fun with the first one, it had a good flow to it and it was simple, yet enjoyable. I think maybe you've added too much into this game, and it all feels very rushed - all the extra things (the lighting, 3d sound... even the player's mutant form) are great, but the core of the game needs a lot of work.

ok finished it.

It's about the most buggy klik game I've played, but I did like how epic all the scripted sequences were, and the hobo and his voice acting were awesome.

I couldn't figure out how to beat one part after the vent shaft area so I just left the screen from the top, circled the level, and came in from the bottom to win.

Hehe great .
A version with a lot of bug fixes will be out very soon.

You're supposed to transform into that creature thing and jump over the gap

Awesome game, and NICE ending. I liked to bonus features, too. Just a bit confusing in places (you put enemies in places that were way off track AND didn't have any supplies). Hopefully SZC3 gets done from the ground up so you can improve the engine.

Really good game.
There are two things that kind of stopped me from giving it a five star.

Firstly it is too hard to pick up stuff, I especially had problems picking up the fire extinguisher in the dark train station...
Then there are many walls which can be walked through. I almost got stuck behind a wall in the room with the vein-puzzle, so it's a pretty critical bug.

Other things that bothered me were the bad spelling, that the battle music was kind of lame compared to then neat tone you had in SZC 1, and that I never found out what happened to that thing in the lake that seemed to swim into the brewery, did I miss it?

You really succeded with the difficult things of the game (like graphics, ai, plot and atmosphere), I just wish you had spent more time with the easy stuff (like collisions and spelling).
Otherwise it was genious.
Posted by Willy C 10th March, 2008

appreciate your comments. I wish I had more time one it.

"and that I never found out what happened to that thing in the lake that seemed to swim into the brewery, did I miss it?"

There was a boss sequence after the office lvl in the brewery, It got replaced by that combat bot lvl. You can still try it out in the bonus feature menu!

Maaan, I don't know what to say. I love the atmosphere and the storyline, it really pulled me in, made me feel like I was in a badass zombie movie. It's a great, great concept, but there were so many bugs that could've been easily removed. This game's got so much potential, but in the end it feels very rushed. Still, I had fun playing this, so I'll give you a 3/5!

Great sense of scale and excellent soundtrack, but the engine needs some refinement and some of the graphics look kind of awkward. Overall, I like where you're going with this, but it doesn't quite deliver yet. Keep up the good work though.

quite honestly it didnt do it for me
i reallly enjoyed the first one. maybe i expected too much. but it let me down a bit.
Posted by Willy C 12th March, 2008

Sorry to hear the cec¿l. I was hoping the ones who liked the first one would like this second one.

What was missing from this second one that I didn't have in the first one?

Let me just say "one" more times.
one, one, one, one, one,

The game is very easy, it's more about the story telling than the action,but nevertheless an interesting game and storyline.
The atmosphere tries to be scary but doesn't quite succeeds,still good though.

Looking forward to the rest of the story.

Posted by Tomssuli 18th March, 2008

I liked the story much... Quite a good gameplay but buggy (once I got stuck so that I could not move in other ways than transforming and leaping around, the character wouldn't walk at all) and it was fun to have the hobo giving a helping hand.

I didn't get a menu at all on startup and when pressed enter it started the game right on... Should there be some menu in the screen where there are ice pillars and smoke?
Posted by Willy C 19th March, 2008

yeah, it is a bit buggy.

It's supposed to be building blocks
And no, there is not supposed to be any menu there, you've got all the editable options available at the start menu.

This game was KICKSASS!!! I get the feeling that you are not a kickass coder, and not a kickass artist, but you spend so much time on this game so it turned out to be awesome anyways! My favorite parts was the storyline, the hobo, and the part where your friend was driving you around on the scooter and you just had to shoot things! (it was also fun when they executed him at the end)

I can't understand people who give this game three stars. I've seen games made in a day get four stars with motivations like; "Not too bad for a beginner! Next time, use original graphics and custom movements, and make it possible to finnish the game". Man, even if there are some buggs, this game is still better then 99% of the games here.

Very good game, the atmosphere and the story were very good and pretty well presented too. The fifth star is lost due to the bugs and the fact that parts of the game seem to be missing, especially in the sound department.

There were a lot of situations where audio and visual cues would have made things a lot easier to work out (and more cool looking too). Like when the guy who gives you the disc is killed, theres no sound or blood, his head just spontaniously splits in half!

If i'm honest I found the combat with the soldiers a little bit weak in comparison to the zombies, because they had instantious reaction times and simple behaviour the only strategy really was to move and shoot and hope you don't die before they do, which, owing to the large amount of health available wasn't too difficult.

Even if some aspects of the game weren't very polished I still think it stands out for its atmosphere, engaging plot (loved the plot twists btw) and the fact that it dares to be drastically different from the multitude of MMF platformers and retro games.

Oh i also thought the hobo guy was awesome. I liked the bit where he helps you fight aswell, his AI wasnt over complicated, so he never hindered the player which is a common downfall of friendly AI.

lol, I was going to enter that competition too. I didn't get very far though. Made a level. It was a platformer, I named it "Evolution Revolution". Lost the code somewhere.

You were an astronaught. You had to shoot stuff with your laser and hitch a ride on an escape vessle after a conundrum involvng your spacecraft. The plot idea was that evolution rould revolutionize somehow.

You would have won anyway. Good times.

This game is very buggy, sometimes to the point where I have to quit and start over...but despite that, I'd give it eight stars if I could. Eight out of five. Do the math.

Hobo(!) was definitely the highlight in this game.
