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.

Everyone Should Play This!

For a long time I didn't bother playing this, I thought 'Oh look, yet another driving game. Oh and Zombies, how original... Not!'... But I was so very wrong. This game is so damn good.

I have to play games on low quality because of my slow computer but even when set to low quality the graphics in this game are still quite good. If you can play smoothly with high quality then you're luckly because this game is a feast for the eyes, what with all the gore and those explosions.

Sound & Voice Acting:
The sound effects are very good and sound clear and realistic. The voice acting is very good and there is a lot of it, lots of chatter on the radio the whole time, I'm glad to see a game that manages to have constant talking without it getting too repetitive.

Plot & Gameplay:
The plot is a simple and is easily summed up by 'Sh*t is going down, Get the F*ck out.' You have to escape a Zombie infested city while being hunted by the military and avoiding dangerous hazards left by other failed escapees, I mean what is there to not like about that concept/ Nothing, thats what. The gameplay is smooth, fun, exciting and this is coming from someone who normally hates driving games. This is way more than just driving though. It tests your reaction time and much more. The upgradables are simple but good.

A great game that in the end does what a good game should; It entertains you and lets you have fun. 10/10, 5/5 and added favourites. I would love to see more games of this quality.

P.S: [Spoiler Alert] I hate mutated Zombies! Get off my damn windscreen! [Spoiler Alert]

Just one advise...
Review the the bumping system, sometimes you hit some cars that are "a mile away"..
But it`s still one great game...
