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 well done.

Overall an excellent game. Fun, challenging, and keeps you on the edge. I only saw minor issues.

Helicopters are a little cheap at times, since there's only one way to clear them out which is having them into signs. There's usually not enough signs and the helicopters track your vehicle with a delay and lag. This makes it somewhat more annoying than fun to lead them into the signs... especially since it usually involves charging through road debris beforehand to give them time to line up. This is while they are shooting at you. Helicopters should really match the player's movements a bit more to correct this.

Explosives set off by the military are borderline cheap shots at times. They're challenging obstacles to avoid when you are given a fair shot to spot them and actually have the ability to dodge them. But, you'll need careful work on the handbrake and upgraded tires to do so effectively... as it seems that the braking of this sports car is pretty garbage. Having decent braking would give a much need ability to aid in timing yourself for these events.

Soldiers should really be apt to move out the way of your vehicle rather than stand there shooting at you the whole time. Their goal should usually be to try to shoot you at an angle rather than dead on and get the hell out of the way if you are trying to line them up.

Clingers to the hood should be able to be thrown off from high speed handbrake turning, sudden hard braking, or going too fast as the wind would pull them off. It should take some effort... but handbrake sliding, while braking hard from high speeds should send most flying. And as an added bonus... give you a chance to hit 'em again.

Windshield shouldn't take as much damage from running into road debris, especially after a few bumper upgrades. It seems the windshield shared way too much damage from debris impacts and the upgrades really felt like they didn't do much.

Windshield wipers are of kind neat, but the option should be a toggle switch rather a trigger. The player is having to press enough buttons already... it's getting to the physical limit for players and keyboards. (Many keyboards have difficulty scanning more than 3 buttons pressed at the same time.) The penalty for having the one constantly should be the chance they'll jam when something hits the windshield.

The horn is a neat idea, but might need to be tweaked. Hitting civilians isn't that much of a penalty and zombies seemed to just turn around an look rather than move towards you. Another feature to think about adding is the ability to use well placed and timed horn blasts for dazing soldiers when they cover their ears. This would be especially true for upgraded horns. The player would have to surprise the soldiers with these blasts as they'll get used to the horns from distance and overtime quickly.

There were a few other minor issues, but so minor I can't remember them off the top of my head.

Again, overall great game, excellent core mechanics, good voice acting, and it had just the right balance in many aspects. Would love to see a second one.
