Passing of time in this adventure is mostly relative, which means you can fast-forward to the night/day, when you decide you are finished. You can explore both during day and night, althought in daytime area that is fit for exploration and/or scavenging is limited, until you want to remain relatively safe, that is.
Encounters will be real-time wherever I will be present.
>As you could see when you have entered kitchen, fridge was not working. Supplies stored in it were completely rotten, even really hungry pony would think twice before trying to eat any food there. >And you weren't that hungry, especially when stench, until now confined within the fridge, filled your nostrils. >However you were one lucky mare. On the bottom of the freezer you have found some water from melted ice. Not very clean, but it will do for now. >Apart of the wooden furniture and stove, kitchen was devoid of any useful things.
