In certain moments of this interactive drama you are given a difficult moral choices that will necessarily entail certain consequences. And in this case there is no single correct solution, since any choice in this game – it’s a kind of personal sacrifice, which provides many very difficult. For example, while you attack a few zombies in your group needs to decide which of the two friends save. If you choose one of them – the second inevitably dies.
