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!

More original than what Ive seen and really good!

you should totally make a sequel to this.
In the sequel you need way more upgrades.
My ideas are.
1. Bumpers that besides increasing damage resistance, also deal more damage so we if we head on a mutated zombie, then it dies.
2. More than 3 levels per upgrade, 5 seems like it would be better.
3. Make Engine upgrade increase speed more. Even at max upgrade everything still felt as if it took forever!
4. More zombie varieties.
5. Make it so we can pick 1 of X amount of cars to start with. Like each car would have its own base stats.
6. Add Forks in the roads. It gets tiring going down 1 long road bashing zombies, add forks that could lead to off roads (harder to steer), Higher infested roads, ect...
7. A way to take our hand with the gun and bring it out the door and point at the zombie instead of smashing our window trying to kill the zombie thats on our hood.
8. Place the monitor that shows us whats ahead of us somewhere at the bottom on like tv screen sort of thing instead of taking up the top half of the screen.
9. For better horn upgrades instead of it getting deeper sounding make them into funny car horns like the mexican hat dance horn. I think that horn would get more attention than the other 3 horns.
10. Add a way to customize the paint job of the vehicle.
11. Where the heck was the rear-view mirror or the side mirrors???
12. Make it so we can buy better vehicles. Ranging from dumpster trucks that take a hell lot of hits and is slow, A motorcycle with is highly vunerable, but super fast, and Speedy cars like the mustang, ect...

Very well pleased!

I'll be honest.... I hate driving games. But you make this feel like an intense action movie. Dodging helicopters, civilians, soldiers, cars and debris, and so much other crap. I actually have to pay attention to play this game because it gets this intense. Then you also have voice acting. Some of it is hammy, but hey, it's a zombie flick. The gore is awesome. You put a lot of hard work into this. It might not appeal to everybody's taste, but they can't deny the fact that the creator put much effort and time into this. Great game.
