Still, looks pretty good and definitely better than any Slender game on the iOS.
I can't tell you how many people are gonna read that and pretend they did not just hear you say zombies. They're so overused I wouldn't flinch if one walked in and sat down next to me right now, I'd probably tap him to see if he exploded.

The skulls part is very much towards the climax of the game, its actually a slower paced psychological horror. Driving around exploring buildings and uncovering clues with a slow haunting and stalking from a sinister spirit. Chapter 1 did not have enough build up to it and there was not enough of uncovering the mystery. The teaser trailer shows more of the action side. the gun will also be a bit of an integration tool for some parts.

There is a great concept for chapter 3 but that will be around summer time.

Would love to hear what other people think should be in future chapters and whether it should stay just supernatural or more xfiles like.
Wow 12 chapters? I hope it all works out

Well not zombies per say, maybe demons or something that goes with witchcraft stuff, it does make more sense than to shoot ghosts with bullets, but that's just me.

And btw, zombies will never get old.

Oh great, as long as there's good writing behind it I'm sure you'll pull it off.

One of the great things about this update is the implied emphasis on supernatural horror in fresh perspectives. Slender Man is interesting but over done. Hopefully future chapters retain the subtle creepy vibe of the first.

Hey, I am obliged to request you consider inserting an elusive El Chucacabra like creature somewhere in one of the chapters.

Oh snap! how I never thought of that? Chupacabras would be amazing in a given chapter, weird, supernatural, horrifying, mysterious, no one has tried that before.

Lol I know it's too much to ask but it would be nice if you considered to do this for one chapter if you do well with this next chapter 2-
