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!

Great fun

The music really added the atmosphere.
And the fact that people still have time killing each other in a zombie apocalypse made me think........
Well its pretty good and the upgrading system was something euxtra played until i locked up basically everything except the gun
Anyways its a good game but not perfect the steering was a bit slow :P

awesome game is awesome

1st, can i ask this: will you make a sequel, "Rotd 2"? if you dont reply me, that will be meaned "yes"
2nd, if there is a sequel, then let more zombies jump on the car, and dont forget to give me a shot gun then, request a Sawn-off, thanks
btw, you should have animated zombies\soldier while they are on the car, simply images falling\flying off the hood is... a little boring, you know
every other things, i think ppl have already said out loud
And 1 more thing, this will be a little bit stupid, but i still wanna tell it: there should be a "Ultimate pack" of upgrades, with the price about hundred thoudsands RP. having upgraded the car completely, RP became uesless, so my idea is to let some "passionated player" put their time replaying the game to good use. dont worry about scoring system, just disable the upgrades in challenge plays, those "Ultimate packs" are for-fun pupose, like crushing mutated zombies...

Cars, zombies, upgrades, this game is awesome! The graphics are amazing that is corresponding with it's unique cartoon style. Story: Awesome, Enemies: Awesome, Game-play: FREAKING AWESOME!

However, I give it a 4.5/5 instead of a 5 for a few reasons: the plot holes. One major plot-hole is the military: the soldiers stand in plain view, instead of taking cover. I'm not a pilot in any way, but I'm pretty sure the helicopters are NOT supposed to fly backwards in front of the player, while being pretty close to the ground, due to the reason that they crash into billboard signs, I understand that it was made to make them like a boss battle that is fair, but come on. Couldn't you make it so you can stick yourself out the car window and shoot it? Lastly (again w/ the military) why do they just leave their cars and trucks completely unused? Wont it be nice to have a car chase in the middle of a zombie apocalypses? This type of nit-picking might be a bit...idiotic...but its just so ridiculous to me, including those few contents that could have been included (car chase in zombie apocalypse, shooting at helicopters, etc) that it ruins a little bit of the fun, but just a little bit. This game is still awesome, and I'm sorry for wasting your time reading this long review when you should've played this awesome game.

Very, very well done!

Great use of voice acting, great graphics, and great gameplay concept. The only problem I can find is that it's a little repetitive, but I've only done the first level so far, so that could easily change. You should think about getting this distributed on Steam or Xbox Indie games!
