********

Death Road to Canada is a Randomly Generated Road Trip Action-RPG. You manage a group of jerks as they explore cities, find weird people, and face up to 500 zombies at once. Everything's randomized: locations, events, survivor personalities and skills. There's a different story every time you play.

Travel the Death Road from Florida to Canada, the last nation on Earth. Find special events, rare encounters, and unique recruits. Recruit a grunting super-bodybuilder who's strong enough to pick up and throw the car. Try to teach a dog how to walk upright and shoot a minigun.

Most of all, get eaten by enormous hordes of slow, classic-style zombies.

DEATH ROAD FEATURES:

- Designed for massive amounts of replay value.
- Character Maker lets you put friends and family into the game.
- Meet your custom characters during your travels. Get them eaten by mistake or on purpose.
- Make tough choices in text events that change depending on your group.
- Your team has different personalities, and someone may betray the others. Be careful!
- Lots and lots of secret events and unique characters with special abilities.
- Equip a wide variety of different weapons. Splat zombies with a flamethrower, battleaxe, hockey stick, wizard staff (lightning bolt), Mjolnir, boomerang, and much more.
- Canada jokes written by a real Canadian so they're 100% accurate.
- Get rid of all humans and make an entire team composed of dogs driving the car.
- Airhorn weapon with incredibly realistic, computer-generated airhorn sounds.

*******************
Update Plans

Some time in May-June, the big "COCCYX" Update is coming. Planned features:

- New unlock system! You can earn points to buy new traits and perks to increase the power of your custom characters.
- Unlock the mysterious Unlock Gnome
- New control options
- Requests we get from your feedback
- New content and other surprises

When this big update comes out, the price of the game will again increase by a dollar. We want to reward early buyers! All players get to look forward to updates that add new things to the game.

The next update after COCCYX will be a big content update. More news on this later!

I've heard so many good things about this but I can't really tell if it's for me. I watched some gameplay but I'm so confused. Just looks like you just shoot everything and make some choices? I'm definitely missing something. I'd love some input from someone that has played the game before!

I designed it.

You have to put a team together, balance out their supplies, and think about your choices based on your group's strengths and their current condition. You also have to adjust your strategy based on random things that happen, and a lot can happen. There's a big focus on rare events. An example is finding the magical anime girl and recruiting her to your party. She is super powerful, but the more you use her the more anime she gets due to the Curse of Anime.

Probably the best way to explain this is in anecdotes of interesting runs that people have had. Hopefully someone that's played shares some.

With all that is going on on the screen at one time I just don't see this translating well with touch controls. I think this kind of game would be better suited for something with physical controls like a portable console or home console. I think maybe they should've ported this over to consoles also. I could be wrong It may play perfectly. I hope everything works out well
