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!

I love this, but how is John able to buy all that stuff with road points he gets when he dies? Does he have time-reversal powers?

One of THE BEST flash games I've ever played!

I have a few suggestions:

- A pause button.
- The game should save after each crash/upgrade, so you can keep your upgrades and points when you restart.
- Option to customize your vehicle. Choose type (truck, minivan, sports car, ect), each with unique stats, and color scheme.
- More obstacles! Maybe some jumps?

That's all I can think of for now. Thanks for this awesome game! :)

Great game, it would be a good console game. A few thoughts: a map would help, either on the side and/or on the main screen, to track you progress when it begins to get a little monotonous. The window upgrade doesn't seem to be as effective as the other upgrades - one shot from a soldier and there's already a crack in the glass. There's got to be other ways to avoid/kill the helicopters, I'm getting chopped to death waiting for a road sign, then when I try to drive under it there's 5 million cars in the way. And please for the love of god, put in a pause button for that pesky real world that keeps intruding. Once my headphones messed up, and I couldn't hear the engine, radio or the character's voice. The growls from the zombies and the screams (especially "my baby! my baby!") from the non-zombies are pretty eerie - but you can't hear them over the other noise. Maybe balance the sound effects a little? Great job!

Wow this is addicting!

Fun game. Kind of difficult in parts, but that's part of what makes it fun and pretty intense. I can't tell you how long my engine was on fire and was like shit where's the checkpoint?! good game though
