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!

Fun! But.... the medals are not working for me. I earned several but it does not show up as earned. That's why I gave it 4 instead of 5 stars.


Rated 4 / 5 stars


After hours of playing this game, i can wholeheartedly say that is badass in all categories. Sounds! Most cars sound like shit but you made it sound real. Voice acting is great, the graphics are awesome as is hitting civilians.

However, i do find it gets a little tedious, ( i did not beat the game, so if i am wrong please tell me!) also i find it cheap how the soldiers can keep shooting and never reload, or maybe i am not just that good. Also, i found that the American Army repeat some of their statements in the same level. It's just annoying hearing "Orders?" about 4 times per level.

Otherwise, killing zombies was never so satisfying!

great game

i like it a lot, however the one thing i have to wonder...
why the WASD scheme? it's not as it one needs to utilize a mouse for anything. it'd be easier for me to play this game with 2 hands ( plus, holding "up" on the keyboard causes less strain than "w")
i like the idea of having to use wipers it adds another sense of the reality of the situation.

Evil-Dog responds:

like probably 99.9% of the games, controls customization is in the options, change the keys to whatever you want buddy, I don'T know why people don't check in the options before saying keys are bad. It's kind of aggravating, losing points for something you did implement and made for people

And by default I use WASD because lots of people are FPS players, whether you use the mouse or not doesn't change the fact that lots of people use WASD, personnaly I'm annoyed by games on the arrows cause it's not natural to me. But yeah, control change in the option, always check in the options

It's alright.

I played up until Burgony Street, then got bored. Luckily for you, I dont judge based on my personal preference, so I'm not just gonna vote 0 or 1 because it's not my thing. The strategy is definately there, and the gameplay is great. Graphics are amazing and it has the certain element that keeps some people coming back for more. You hit the mark with this one. Would love to see more. 4/5 and 8/10.
