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.

While it didn't seem very special at first, i must say i got really into it after a while of playing. The workshop and the radio chatter is also a very nice touch.

Well done flash game

In a sea of zombie games that involve shooting them (well, this game does also to a minimal extent), it's nice to see a change in taking out zombies a different way.

This is some of the best voice acting I've heard in a flash movie or game, it just seems to be something people overlook these days. There are a few issues I've had with the game, though. The first is there seems to be some monotony as the game goes on, for example the background scenery doesn't change nearly enough and even that would have made things feel a little fresher. For example, while driving through "Chinatown" I would expect to see more buildings associated with that culture. The monotony also comes with the fact there is little variance for enemy types or obstacles, considering how thought was put into a mutated zombie variant that was more difficult to deal with I think more thought could have been thought in spicing up the game in the later levels.

This is more of a pet peeve, and I'm sure it's been pointed out already but although the protagonist's car appears to be based on a newer model Ford Mustang, the dashboard does not appear to remotely resemble one out of a newer Mustang. I am going to assume this was done on purpose either because it was more difficult to model or the dash design in use currently is more easier for the player to read (Well, there are really only two functioning gauges for the player).

Otherwise, keep up the good work, I believe the ending leaves the game open for a sequel.
