    Man, there weren't even NPCs last time I played Cataclysm. It was basically about wandering and fighting zombies until you died. And guns were basically a form of suicide, since they invariably attracted an insurmountable horde of zombies. Eventually I got bored of the game and just went around setting everything on fire in every new life.
    The guns? Shit, everything's a form of suicide in that game. Spend more than ten minutes on the far outskirts of the closest city rummaging through two houses, bam 30 deep zombie horde. No window breaking, no throwing or anything. Just suddenly zombie horde.

    Npc's in cataclysm have a really specific sense of humor
    The first npc in the shelter gifted me a lit stick of dynamite

    Edited:

    I just realized that the spawn location in cataclysm is random now
    There goes my plan on raiding a nearby lab

    If it's anything like previous versions, you end up spawning in the same shelter within several rerolls, or at least in a nearby one. Though maybe not anymore; I'm still waiting for it to download on my slow as shit internet.

    In cataclysm, don't you just hate when stupid squirrels jump on your landmines alerting every zombie in the 50 mile radius
    Everything was perfect, no zombies, good tools and a companion. Then a squirrel jumps on a landmine and I am instantly getting devoured by a zombie horde

    How do you talk to NPCs in Cataclysm? I haven't managed to find any mention of it in Help menu.

    So I just spawned, walked for about 2 minutes, found some scientists and a bottle of mutagen. Drank it, and I got straight to chitinous plate! Is it possible to view your armour and stuff? I want to see how effective it is.

    Your mutations are displayed in @ menu, under Traits.

    I wandered into the Lab and found Mutagen Bottle, which turned me into a clumsy slug...and that was on an agile traceur character, who got royally fucked over by that mutation.

    Edited:

    I just found out that you can get endless amount of items by asking the first NPC you meet for equipment, he never runs out of items to give.

    Fucking hell I love mutations. I died on my previous run (a great deal easier than I would have liked), but soon after I got into another science lab, scoffed a couple of mutagens, and got hollow bones, adrenalin, and very fast healing. I'm too quick for anyone to catch up with me, but if something does go wrong, I can just run back to my lab and sleep for a heal. To give you an example, I just got chased by some a horde in the dark, accidentally stepped on a landmine, had 8 health left on my torso. Game over, I thought, until I remembered I had adrenalin, so I could still outrun the horde and escape back to my lab and heal myself back to full health. It's ridiculous!

    Edited:

    Just ate a couple of legs, now I have regeneration, bahaha. For once I'm playing a roguelike and it's not trying to punish me.

    Edited:

    Mkay I definitely spoke to soon! I stupidly forgot that I was still in excrutiating pain from the night before, and died to a single lowly skeleton because I was too slow to run away and they're too motherfucking difficult to hit. Now I'm sad.

    Although I was just given an awl pike from the starting NPC.

    Starting NPCs give endless amount of items and can give you pretty much anything. I've got a Railgun from one recently.

    I managed to get around 250 units of items and then got bored and killed him.
    Even if it's not endless it's still quite broken.

    Aww... I was playing Cataclysm, found a bunch of dead soldiers. Ended up with a kevlar vest, army helmet and pants, silenced .45 with an extended clip and some small other stuff from them. It started raining acid on me so I took off to a nearby hardware store. Found a backpack, equipped it, and the game crashed. I'm sad, I was doing really well.

    NPCs actually can run out its just that they have tons of stuff.

    While you have been thriving I have been making characters every two minutes blowing up gas stations and throwing pipe bombs into military compounds.

    You can chug down bottles of purifier to remove mutations, but I think it also takes away positive ones.

    I'm so damn used to nice and comfortable controls of roguelikes like Crawl and ToME that Cataclysm's UI and controls make me cringe.
    I'm still gonna play it though because damn, it's the best zombie roguelike ever.

    Holy shit, how do I even put a backpack on. When I hit 'w' and try to equip it, it just puts it in my hands, so I can bludgeon zombies to death with a backpack.

    So I found a MASSIVE complex under a lab in cataclysm and while I'm exploring it my flashlight runs out of batteries and, being stupid, I forgot to find more. Then I see the icons indicating that I can hear things moving around near me.


    Also had a schizophrenic attack while fleeing a zombie horde. My schizophrenia always kicks in at the worst times. Having your mother chase you surrounded by zombies is not a pleasant experience.
    In my most recent file when I died I had 1900 batteries (not including the 100 in my flashlight). I just emptied out every flashlight I saw by wielding them, then pressing U to unload them.

    Edited:

    Cataclysm update posted:
    Amigara Fault event fixes--you probably won't be trapped forever anymore.
    Amigara Fault? Like... THAT Amigara Fault?!

    Fuck, it IS that amigara fault. I just used debug mode and I was able to spawn an Amigara Monster, which fit the description exactly.

    It said you could combine ammonia and bleach, but I didn't know how, so I tried to 'a'ctivate the bleach. My guy drank it.

    You probably has to pour out both bottles into the same area and then fill it back up with a new bottle(?)

    I will probably just check the wiki.

    Edited:

    Actually it says the are both used in crafting ingredients for make-shift teargas grenades.
