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.

The best game I've played on newgrounds. Mostly because of it's originality my only problem with it being that it's literally TOO much fun.

Two words (pun intended): Heart Racing Action

This game was intense, I kid you not when I say that, during the final portions of the game where I was racing against the clock, I could feel my heart rate go up from the sheer anticipation. The general feel of the atmosphere had my adrenaline pumping, and the medals and other game modes provided an extra dimension for game play which encourages multiple play-throughs. All in all, I loved the concept presented by this game, and the execution of said concept was outstanding. My only complaint would be that the steering didn't feel as dynamic and responsive as it could be, but other than that I say: Good Show!
Also, if you plan on any future installments, I would recommend expanding the in-game content, such as a choice of vehicle, (old school muscle car, contemporary sports car, pick-up truck, Van, {tank?}, etc.), perhaps with each car having a different in-game effect/special ability; and maybe change gun upgrades so that it's more than just having extra ammo, such as having a sawn-off shotgun, or a revolver, or an uzi or something. I'm sure there are other things you can do, but I'll leave that up to you.

Good 3D driving game

The normal game is real long and it takes a while to get upgrades when you hit a car it bounces you to the other side which is annoying but other than that very good game.
