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!

Very awesome game, kept me playing for a long time.
Helicopters were kinda tough, I wished I had a rocket launcher sometimes.

Definitely amazing, original and has plenty of replay value.

Just some comments that might help the sequel if there ever is one(Seriously hopes there is one : )

*Passengers! dude you can stop at a point in this game, zombies and military is no where to be found so why not use that to pick up people, one could shoot while the main character drives

*Other Cars! I wanna see if i can get out of the zombie infested city in an SUV, Pickup truck or whatever

*Story! the story suits the game well but is kinda generic, perhaps other important characters?

but this game is perfect as it is any any major changes is for later

good job guys : )

Rated 4.5 / 5 stars

very nice

at first i was worried about the clunky movement, but quickly realised it was because u needed to upgrade it. i love the look and art, music and voices, they fit in so well together. not so much replay value tbh, it is in essance the same thing, but its a fantastic time killer, lots of awesome ideas excecuted very nicely

just a sidenote, a nuclear bomb is not just radiation, but insane amounts of energy (although radiation is energy... but in a different form).
a 1 ton vehicle moving at 100 mph/160kmph for example, is about 1,000,000 joules or measurements of energy, a nuclear bomb... however, like the one dropped in hiroshima, which for todays standards is quite small, would equal about 63,000,000,000,000 joules being directly released, and can vaporise and demoleculise particles at moderate proximity. at long range heavy radioactive effects can stretch for hundreds of kilometers. but thats me being a MASSIVE NERD

damn dialogue

Great game but two things;
road only goes straight. understand if its a programming issue but no hills or turns got a lil boring after awhile.

the dialogue is awful. the voice acting was alright but the actual lines were pretty bad and got annoying after awhile. it just distracted from the gameplay constantly hearing "permission to use the element of surprise" "granted, maintain your position and use the element of surprise on the target". that and i think the same guy acted like 5 different characters one of which im pretty sure 'dies' during a transmission. tell em to change his tone or something.

woulda gave it a perfect rating had it not been for that part.
