Hey people! SickDeathFiend, me and the rest of the team are very excited to bring you our first game: Road of the Dead!

Escape the quarantined city by driving through a highway filled with ravenous undead, carnage and chaos while the military tries to stop you!

With 4 game modes, 24 medals and up to 1000 newgrounds point (OMFG!!!!), we hope you greatly enjoy Road of the Dead!

Keep in mind the Q key to toggle the quality for people with slower computer, it is a pretty graphic intensive game :D
The newgrounds Dimming Lights and Popup options can also help get better performance.

An epic game.
The storyline is straight badass,you play as John Creasman [A mechanic] trying to escape the city while constantly getting shot by soldiers and various obstacles put by them and of course some zombies try to ear your brains. The ending is awesome too. The graphics are pretty decent but there isn't that many different looks of zombies however those three look very detailed and so does the whole environment.

The cars look very detailed especially the main character's car

The gameplay is pretty much the best part of this drive in a car blasting through zombies and various obstacles....every time you go past a military checkpoint you will find more trap such as spike strips and bombs....the controls are very smooth and pretty much your typical W-AS-D also I love the upgrade system in this starts you off with no upgrades and your car isn't very good but as you proceed and get upgrades..the car starts to be more smoother to control and it has more speed and power.

The difficulty of this game is very well starts off easy on you then goes a little bit hard and then it goes very hard and comes back to easy at the ending since the city is just getting ruined.

The music that plays while you are driving is really excellent as it is quite motivating and pretty much all the other sound effects are great.

The voice acting is top quality with lots of great lines for the characters and all the military soldiers.

One thing I hate about this game though is..whenever there is a car,bus or a truck in front of you...somehow soldiers can shoot you through's get annoying sometimes.

Overall: This game is fantastic and you can tell tons of effort has been put into it.
