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.

A good romp

As always with your games, I'm very impressed with the level of detail that has been put into it. You truly are a master creator of this sort of game and thoroughly deserving of the plaudits that you get for them.

I think that the way you've added simple designs to the upgrades, spent ages working on getting the details right like the splatter and even the blood on the windscreen, I don't have to play it long to fall in love with it.

One medal down, many more hours spent sitting in front of my laptop I feel, pursuing the goals. It sure is going to take a while as I don't really have the skill, but on a war of attrition basis, I might have a shot.

Perhaps have checkpoints, when you can actually come off the road and stop to try and grab yourself some additional supplies, such as armour plates, additional ammo and even more fuel. Do you dare to try and change the tyres on the car, as the authorities close in on you, as well as the much slower zombies?

This game has great potential, even in this finished form that we see before us. I think that it's awesome and clearly has the benefit of a lot of thinking gone into it. How long must it take to get everything in place for a piece like this? Mind you, when you've got such a great team to back you up in the art, music and voice stakes, you don't really need to worry about time, really.

I hope that this makes you and your collaborators money, as you all deserve to go pro with this sort of game development. You'd make some truly mesmerising games.

Fresh look at a classic genre.

This is probably the most unique zombie survival game I've ever played period, console or otherwise. It almost felt like GTA meets Dead Rising, the car radio added a ton to the feel of this game and made it even better. The gameplay is challenging, but not overly frustrating, the upgrades are definitely appropriate, but even maxed out still provide a good challenge. There's honestly not much about this game I'd say needs improvement as it's one of the funnest flash games I've played in awhile. I guess I'd say try to make the depth perception more realistic? I'm sure that part was a real bitch, and you actually pulled it off very well, but if I had to give some criticism I guess I'd just say try to improve that aspect. If [and when] you make the sequel, maybe add some elements such as different radio stations, ones that play music (did anyone else feel the need for some metal blaring while running over zombies?) in addition to just broadcasting the doom happening all around, and maybe you could implement a system where you can look to the side of your car and shoot the drivers of pursuing vehicles or something.

Thank you for the hours of entertainment.
