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!

So to be clear here guys, there is a sequel. Lab of the Dead. It takes place after the events here. It is a different style of game, but its the same storyline. That has a sequel. Range of the Dead. Again, different type of game.

This is the best flash game I've ever played and the sole reason I made a Newgrounds account. Any game where you upgrade things makes me wanna play it until I upgrade everything to the MAX! I love everything except the helicopter. Too difficult.

Strangely addicting and so simple it's complex. Could play this for hours. Kind of slow to load sometimes --hence the half star-- but otherwise capital-A Awesome :)

Wow. WOW.

It's Hot Pursuit meets Resident Evil. How could this NOT work? :D
I agree with the idea of a duck function, and I think the Perception could have used a different design (not sure what kind of design, but I personally could barely read it). But the control makes sense, and the controls make sense even before a remap.
And HOLY SHIT THERE'S A STORY?! I ate it up with a spoon, fan-TASTIC work, sir.

Loved It

Im not going to express all the good parts about this game as everyone else already has. Instead im going to list and explain the few BAD parts there were:
1. No variety of anything. No variety of male or female infected and uninfected. There is just one look that they all get. No variety whatsoever. The only unique zombie was the one with the flesh torn off it. (Mutated zombie) This goes for cars as well. Oh yes, the colors are certainly different but i doubt there are that many buggies on a real highway.
2. Military doesnt do anything! They just stand there and look pretty and occasionally blow you up. However in the many military camps, there are just so many army guys that you die in seconds unless your a tank.
3. I highly doubt there is a public radio station that is completely devoted to a higher army official telling a lower one to kill some psycho. (your character)
4. On the military camps with the whole bunch of gates, that they say no zombie has passed but your character might knock it down. Once you pass it, there are zombies past THERE?! The army guys just said no zombies past it!
Dont my negative feedback bring ya down. I only left out the positive cuz theres so much of it!
