Set in the "Zombie Exodus" world, the first part of "Safe Haven" focuses on the first few days of a viral outbreak which changes the infected into mindless zombies. Explore the changes to society at the start of the pandemic. Board your house, gather supplies, meet over a dozen other characters, and survive encounters with the living dead and even other survivors. Scavenge numerous locations, craft items, and use a variety of skills to survive the many challenges of the apocalypse.

My Favorite Choice-Of Game Thus Far

I’ve been playing Choice-Of games for years, and when they started out, they were simpler in writing, but very fun. As time has gone on, the writing has gotten better, the stories have become much more in-depth, and they’ve also gotten more expensive (though maybe inflation has helped that, too). Anyway, my top favorites are the “Heroes Rise” trilogy, “To the City of the Clouds,” “Choice of the Star Captain,” “Broadsides,” and “Choice of the Vampire.” Since this one has come out, I find it to be the most entertaining, engaging, and re-playable. It has quickly shot to my number one favorite spot. The writing is excellent, in my opinion (with only a few errors here and there, but very few), and the choices you choose really seem to make the story different each time. Mostly though, I just like scavenging for resources and killing zombies. I’ve played through this one about a dozen or so times now, and I just can’t get enough. As of this review, there are only parts 1 & 2, and I can’t wait until the rest of it is finished!

A loyal gamer

Great game, some advise for part 2

I loved the game and played it 3 separate times, each one getting better than the last, unfortunately I didn't save everyone but I plan on playing the game for a fourth time in order to. (It has a great replay value). I do ask that in the next game the creators decide to add more options to strengthen relationships. Such as the ability to give your "friends" candy or something, in order to strengthen your relationship. I also think it should be a characteristic that (small spoiler alert) the vehicles we chose at the end can affect the next game, like using the bus to make a base, or the ability to mount the 50 cal at a base we make to help defend ourselves. Thanks for your consideration, and I hope you choose to go with some of my ideas.


Top CoG or Hosted as to offer.

JD is the writer all others should aspire to emulate. He has listened for several years now to what his readers want and I couldn't possibly imagine the brainstorming he goes through to write some many overlapping stories. I've been the choice of books since "choice of dragon" back in 2010 and while zombie exodus has some fierce competition with the Heroes Rise Saga and several others. It's safe to say this remains the top series. The first was without a doubt 5 stars and this one has such ambitions that if I could rate it higher I would.
-Love the writing. Never give up.
