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!

So damn addicting

Its kinda repetitive but the wanting to know what is at the end makes you replay it and replay it till you get there. Great first person driver game. Haven't seen one like this on newgrounds. I smell sequellllllll

This game is outstanding, especially for a flash.

The first person to make the gun almost completely useless in a zombie shooter and still make it completely badass, broken thumb's-up!!

Gotta love it!

I must say, I have no real complaints! Granted, a few nitpicks, but really, there's nothing here I don't love. The entire game just has an interesting flow to it. The storyline isn't cheesy at all, and feels like a zombie movie you definetely wouldn't see be explored upon. Nothing seems too cliche, and it keeps itself in check the whole way through, still providing an intense atmosphere. The music itself impacts that atmosphere as well, as it just flows very well with the game.

I also love the elements implemented in the game, such as building up your car and just the general gameplay. I don't have much to say, because it is astonishingly detailed with so many options in quality, background options, and modes. You really out-did yourself, that's for sure! And the art just makes things twice as creepy when it comes to the zombies, and brings some cartoony, though realistic feel into the art.

On the other hand, voice acting. I must say, I liked it. Didn't love it, but I liked. I'd say the real winners in terms of voice acting would be Druox and Tomamoto, as they provided some of the more convincing roles and really, I didn't see much flaws. Though, it IS strange to see Druox doing something that isn't comedy, but it's damn good to hear him otherwise.

As for Xalxie, this is the first time I've ever heard him, and I thought he pulled off some of his acting in a convincing manner, but I just didn't FEEL the voice too much. It just sounded like he was forcing emotion. As for Sapphire, I know you can do a lot better. I felt like you could've been a lot louder when it came to those "oh shit" moments, and it just felt like you were holding yourself back and trying to stay cool. I know you can do a lot better, Sapphire, and I thought your performance was decent at first, but I grew onto it. (:

Really, this whole game has so much detail and shows to have had a bunch of care put into it. The gameplay, options, modes, art, everything. Absolutely golden and it surely is going to be written down as one of my favorite flash games!

To all the crew: fucking spectacular jobs!
