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!

Addicting and really fun. Need a better way to destroy helicopters and kill soldies... Hard, and helicopters are tedious and boring.

Great game, one possible glitch.

It's probably been discussed, but if you slow to a complete stop, the mutated zombies walk right through the car without jumping on. Not sure if this is intentional or not.

The gameplay is smooth for the most part and the art is great. The music is cliche, and it made it seem like Keanu Reeves was driving, but I guess it fits with this being an epic. The voice work is pretty good. The sounds bites are choppy and off sometimes, but I guess it depends how fast you run through the parts. It had a pretty cinematic feel to it.
Any thoughts towards a follow-up? I mean this one is already hugely popular.
Some things would be cool to add like interaction between zombies/civilians/military. Other drivers. Have more zombies pile onto the car. Ya know, extra bells n whistles to keep it fresh...
Good stuff though

The graphics were really good, the controls worked very well, and it has some good voice acting. And it was fun to kill some zombies with a car, but It has one big issue. Why in the hell is there no option to back up? When I am super close to a truck theres no alternative other than run over it? However, thats the only issue. The rest of the game is great.
