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.

Leave comments and tell us what you think of it!

Good, but room for improvement.

Its a good game and concept :)
I dont like that you can't turn all the sound off... or perhaps that was just me? :L
Nice graphics, and the upgrades were basic :)
All round fun game to pass the time.

Suspenseful thrill ride

It's quite obvious that there was a lot of effort going into this game.

The cool thing about Road of the Dead is that the game doesn't just throw you into a car and say, "DRIVE OVER ZOMBIES. DRIVE OVER MORE ZOMBIES. IT'S JUST A GAME." The atmosphere really makes it feel like all hell has truly broken loose. Graphics do play a good role in that (as they are very well done), but the music really becomes the shining point of connecting the events to the action. The song played in the action portion has a professional edge to it, so props to the musicians for that!

Gameplay itself is a real treat. At a mix of a fun joyride and a desperate attempt to escape, everything comes together. The controls are tight knit, responsive, and everything does what it needs to. Even the wipers come in handy!

I know that this has been a common complaint, but unfortunately I need to bring it up too. We are able to judge the windshield's and the car's health well, but it's very problematic to only have a few flashes of transparent red for the protagonist's health. Plus it's rather inaccurate because it was flashing almost at a rate which someone could spaz out but I kept getting shot up and lived. While on the other hand, the red flashed only once every 6-10 seconds (I had level 3 body armor mind you) and I died from only a few bullets. A health bar or better indicator of some kind would be a great help.

Honestly, that's my only real complaint about this game. Otherwise, I've already dropped 5 hours into this game and still love it. It's a great game!

One of the best in Newgrounds...

This is by far, my most favorite game on newgrounds. awesome music, great voice acting, and awesome gameplay. all it needs are more weapons(SMGs or shotgun will do), more enemies, and a pause button.

But otherwise, a great game.
