For whatever reason, they often seem to clam up and avoid saying anything - whether awesome or awful things are happening. Safe Zone is a Kickstarter game which was funded in July 2011. Basically, it was a lot like The Oregon Trail but players had to avoid succumbing to the zombie plague while travelling across the U.S. They actually started out doing well with updates, providing six during the rest of 2011 and 14 in 2012."
