We’re making steady progress but are coming up about 300 people short! If you have $3 per month or $25 per year to spare, please consider becoming a Supporter today!

Dead Estate

Cornered with nowhere else to turn, can you escape the monster-filled mansion?

Dead Estate is a gory, fast-paced top-down shooter/roguelike with a heavy emphasis on Halloween. Ascend four floors of a monster-filled mansion with two different playable characters, 25 different weapons to choose from, and 50 different items to aid you along the way!

Beware of the lurking threats on every floor -- some of them are especially persistent...



...are very basic. Simply use the mouse to aim,

WASD or arrow keys to move,

space, Z, or right click to jump,

left click to fire,

and middle click or shift to destroy weapons!

Halloween update!!: First of all, I wanna say thank you for featuring our game on the front page. I don't have a whole lot of time to write this, but it really means a lot to all of us. Second of all, I just updated the game (again)! In addition to some bug fixes (opening treasure chests shouldn't crash the game anymore), I added a bunch of new items. Most of them are related to the new weapon destroying mechanic. For example, the "Heart of Steel" item raises your maximum health whenever you destroy a weapon with full ammo. Just felt like throwing in a little bit of new content since it's Halloween today and all. Thanks again for playing, everybody! Hope you continue to enjoy our game :)
