    Awesome game. I left the stove on, caught the house on fire, and tried to drag my wife out to safety. Zombies started coming in the (burnt down)kitchen door as we got to the bottom of the staircase, so i made for the other exit. I opened the door and the room literally filled with zombies and we both died instantly.

    I did this while 4 people were watching over my shoulder. As one, they all said "You fail as a husband". :(

    Re: That certain encounter early in the game:
    Eventually the guy with the shotgun says "I'm going to shoot your wife in 3 seconds" and starts counting down. Somewhere around 2 he turns and faces her. If you're fast you can equip the hammer and whack him in the back of the head with it.

    I think you have to equip it by putting it in the large(er) circle in the top left of the screen. Then left click the hammer, then the barricade. It should disappear at that point, but you don't get the planks back. :(

    Edit: I'm doing this from memory, I'll load it up in a minute and test it to make sure.
    Edit #2: Test. You dont even have to equip the hammer. Just select the hammer, then select the barricade.....
    Then pull the trigger and kill your hideous freak of a pon.....barricade.

    I hid in the bathroom before he broke into the house. He went upstairs and started yelling at the wife, so I rushed him... killed him with 1 hit of my hammer. I got some supplies and stayed in that house for a while, but didn't get any other mission about the wife.

    How I died:
    I went through the park at dusk and got hit a few times. I spend the night behind the bar, shotgunning about 50 zombies. By the time I made it home, I was critically injured....I barricaded myself in with my wife and was about to see if I could kill us both when I passed out, died, and got up as a zombie. D:

    I just read about that earlier, I think you need to refresh the page.

    Edit: I can't find where I read that but I did find out that the tutorial house beds don't work. Maybe that's the problem. I can't confirm any of this however as I don't have access to the game yet.

    I don't know if this pertains to your situation, but apparently you can't sleep in the beds in the tutorial house at the moment. Also, paintings? Apparently some of them work like beds. Which is nice considering some of these houses mysteriously don't have beds

    I remember the first time my college roomate and I played homeworld: cataclysm online against someone else. We asked them how to set our teams, and they told us you had to hit ctrl +s twice in a row quickly.

    ctrl + s x2 is the command and confirmation to scuttle your selected ship. Since it was the beginning of the round, that meant your home ship.

    We both did it....

    As far as I can tell.

    Remember that this is just a tech demo. They just wanted to show off a little of what they planned to do, and I'm pretty sure the only reason they released what they did was because one of the testers leaked it anyways.

    My house caught fire, I ran upstairs and picked up the wife. Staggered downstairs just in time to open the front door, letting in a massive horde of moaning zombies. The fire apparently attracted their attention.

    So, upcoming patch notes (so far):

    Build 0.1.4a

    1) N, E, S, W / NE, SE, SW, NW directional control toggle
    2) Inventory grows to fill vertical space of sidebar.
    3) Fixed various bed related bugs. Added option to sleep to avoid accidental clicks, or to inform player why they can't.
    4) Fixed pot dupe bug.
    5) Fixed the death sound. WHEN DID THAT START HAPPENING?
    6) Planks of wood will be useable melee weapons
    7) Ripped down barricades turn into wood plank with that much health taken off, so can be reused but with reduced health.
    8) A few stragglers aside, zombies flock together and slowly migrate around the map in one or more groups, meaning the zombie density around the map will differ massively, and this will change over time. This means that your safe-house may be left alone for some time before suddenly being in the centre of a massive shambling swarm.. This may need some balancing in future updates, but should provide more strategy to avoiding the horde. (Also running nonchalantly down an empty street at night then bumping into a ton of zombies is cool)
    9) Scratches have only 25% chance of infection, and you will only find out a day or more later when you get queasy if you were infected. Bites are 100%.


    Awesome

    Supposedly if you are extremely quick about it you can hit him with the hammer while he's talking, however the guaranteed way to do it is to hide in the upstairs bathroom as soon as the radio dialogue starts. When he comes upstairs and starts talking to the wife you can come out and clock him upside the head.

    Fun game, can't wait to see where it goes from here.

    I hope the scripted events become not-scripted in the future. The oven only catches on fire in that specific instance (I left an oven on in the house to the east and nothing happened) and the shotgun guy is scripted etcetc. I know its super early though. I'll be watching the patch notes for sure. This game will be interesting in a few months.

    More from upcoming patch:

    14) Can barricade with hammer in your offhand. Forgetting to do this if you have wood selected and try and barricade a door, it will fail but NOT open the door to all the zombies you're trying to protect yourself against.
    15) Context sensitive clicking is disabled when CTRL is held.
    16) Beds can only be used when within 'open container/open door' range.
    17) Skipping tutorial will retain the 'safe zone' until you venture out, to make it a way of skipping the tutorial without punishing the player and thus making it a more attractive option. You evil, evil person. :P
    18) Experimental - Raised day length to 20 minutes from 15 now we have fast forward. Have also doubled speed of fast forward (CPU dependent)
    19) Food / pills can be eaten by putting them on the heart icon, in analog to putting things in inventory.
    20) Couches / sofas can be slept on.
    21) Eating / pill popping no longer clears item from mouse. So eating multiple is just multiple clicks.
    22) Restarting after death. Will skip front end and load the map again immediately. May cause obscure 'second playthrough' bugs from restart we'll have to deal with as they become apparent. May also be pushing it for memory on lower end PCs if the old map hasn't been garbage collected in time.


    After a long day of bashing zombies heads in, I can crash on the couch. Changes to eating/pills sounds great too.
