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!

Just one suggestion..

I think it might be a good idea to have an adjustable radio. Listening to military conversations about killing you is one thing, but listening to "Highway to hell" or something similar while running over zombies would be awesome. Especially while baked. Other than that, this is one of the greatest ways to spend my time I have found in all my years, 10/10.

One of the best zombie or driving games ever

This is a fantastic game and should be made into a full fledged retail game. The handling is great, the art is great, and it is just fun to play. I also like that every upgrade actually helps you. One run through you will feel like your car is usless, then one upgrade later you are messing guys up.

Great game. Make more of everything!

In the name of Baboosh!

Why can't I play this on my XBox?!?!?!!?
I can easily say this is one of the few things I'd pay for.

Rated 4.5 / 5 stars

Good game

First off, this is a well done game with classic controls. There are no major things I'd like to criticise except for the zombies eating bodies on the ground, you will not get any combo bonuses from theese.

The start was pretty nice, very unoriginal but well done. The concept is very overused and zombies is not something we haven't seen before. Althou the overall conclusion of the game is great, the voice acting, the civilians, the zombies, the military, it still feels like something is missing. This does not affect the game bad in any way but for me, it feels like the final touch is missing.

The whole team effort was, from experiencing only the game, felt complete. I have nothing else to say about the team than you guys did an awesome job putting this together.

The car feeling was really great, even thou it seems like your car has 4 wheels linked to the steering. Upgrading, expanding and progressing while looking at your veichle turning into a monster was purely perfect.

I congratulate you people for making a great game and I hope to see more from you in the future.
