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!

Beautiful, and well thought out.

I really like how you took just about everything into account; the fragility of the windshield, weakness of the car, health when the windshield is broken, even the wipers to clear away blood splatters left by roadkill victims. My favorite of all was the scene where the windshield takes a huge amount of damage when you "pop a cap" in a zombie or someone else clinging to your hood.
11/10, 6/5, and favorited. Awesome job for a first game.

Hol crap, you are good.

It's need for Speed meets the zombie apocalypse! I like how you took everything into account, such as the windshield, for example, and how fragile it is. I also like how the car blows up (very detailed, despite it meaning a game over) and even though I haven't got past The Great Escape, (I think...) It's still an awesome game! 10/10, 5/5.

HOLY CRAP. . . brings back memories of the old sega game Outlander except with zombies and chaos. I think im addicted. Really liked the windshield wipers, that brought a smile to my face. . .

A game that uses a 3d rendering, and as much as it can slow down computers, it is graphically intensive, and has a simply obvious story line... I just wish more people would spend more of their time trying to make THIS type of game, (upgradeable, with talking characters, and interactive environments) The car, well not my first choice, but an american classic is still a good one none the less. Aside from all that the game's simplicity, is easliy balanced by the amount of obsticles (crap) that is in your way, making the challenge of keeping top speed, and the great escape much more enjoyable... also it is really good that you decided to add a type checkpoint system..... nothing makes me more mad in a video game, when you lose all your progress, and there is no mediary

awsome game also my record is 12.53 KM and im 6th for daily records, (for some reason i cant change to monthly records or weekly) and it took about 10 minutes, that is in police state mode, which is alot easyer now that i know how to not get shot by the soldiers (use handbrake so u go heaps beside them then handbrake and hit them from the side)
Combatboots, u suck, u should have beaten the main game and upgraded urself so u get max speed 240 km/hr
And also rick32fr, there is heaps of reasons why the army would shoot you
1. the city is quaritined, they are told to shoot EVERYONE (i still dont get why they arent shooting the civilians or zombies tho)
2. The path u take goes through heaps of the main checkpoint blockades, if they let u through, ud destroy there fences that are protecting them from zombies
3. you might be bitten, every zombie anything says that u dont get infected instantly, u might be turning and could infect other citys.

Finally im pretty sure they would use jets on a single car, thats pretty fucking stuipid
