Ahh, I've been waiting for this for a while and don't even know really what it's all about! I kind of assumed it'd be like a Zombieville-esque game.

Regardless, buying now.

Looks fun, but I'm curious, why does update 1.5 say 'in-depth story mode. Is there no story mode as it stands?
If so, how many levels are in the adventue/story mode, as this is not specified in the description.

I'm having trouble understand what type of game this is from the description.

There is a minor story mode in the survival part. Version 1.5 is coming soon. (Goal is May.) The story mode is aimed to take a few hours to complete, but replayability should also be factored in. (Beat game with different armor, weapons.)

So, is the game purely a survival game as it stands? Almost like a Defend Your Castle, but using a character instead? Maybe a video would help.
