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.

Loved this game, seriously. I just wished that you could upgrade even more, and that the towns weren't so damn far apart.

My only real complain is that the highway's will get so crowded you can't do anything ther than ram something you don't want. I get that in a zombie outbreak it would be most likely this way, its still aggitating to play. Either the helicopter or the thousand soldiers or the mutant zombie kill me in Brighton Bridge.

With that said, it was a lot of fun for the most part.

Good game

It's pretty good I'm just having some trouble beating the final level.

I really enjoyed this game. Great work, all of you. The game-play was greatly enjoyable, however, as was previously stated, the acceleration physics could use some reworking, and the road is too long and unrealistic - what kind of highway doesn't turn or at least branch off?

Loved the story, though. Use of a police scanner or whatever was a great way to convey narrative, as well as a few minor environment changes - like at the end, where you drive through the abandoned base that's been completely over-run by Zeds. Perhaps changing the background as you go through different areas would make it even better - China Town didn't look like China Town, it looked like just another part of the city. I'm definitely hoping for a sequel to the game, if you can.

Character was interesting, heroic and manly while still relatable, although I kind of thought he was a bit of a douche for killing all those soldiers and sabotaging their defences. =c

Car upgrade system was cool. I especially like how most of the upgrades had an actual, visual effect on the car's garage and in-play view. However, by the end of the game my car was fully upgraded and I was just collecting points for nothing. Perhaps more upgrades? Maybe front-mounted guns! =D
