About

Still Dead Studios is proud to announce Blood, Sweat And Gears. In the game you play as a nomadic survivor of the apocalypse, out to claim land, supplies and gear for your yourself through whatever means necessary. You've heard stories about a vibrant Oasis, untouched by the apocalypse and free for the taking, as long as you don't mind the competition, that is. Want to make enemies of everyone around you or team up with others? Anything is fair in the wasteland. But keep an eye on your friends, anybody could backstab you the second they get the opportunity.  

“The wasteland is always hungry, pulls you in with the promise of treasure, oasis, and devours those foolish enough to believe the stories. I cant count the number of wanderers who vanished into those dammed sands. I don't want to." Everything changed after the apocalypse, society collapsed, as people gave into their animistic nature. They took what they wanted from those who were weaker. Out in the wasteland, everything is scarce, from bullets to bandages. People are willing to kill each other over a sip of precious, life giving water when you haven't seen anything but mirages for days. But you've heard stories about an Oasis. Teeming with food and water, it's the most valuable treasure in this wretched world. 

But you aren't the only one crazy enough to fuel up your junker and go looking for it, it seems just about everyone out here is looking for the same thing you are. So make sure your gun is loaded, your knives sharp, and your vehicle fueled up, because this is going to be one hell of a ride. 

 The only way you're going to survive this is if you have the right gear. Loot it, snatch it steal it, there are no rules in the wasteland. Just don't get caught flaunting your stuff, somebody might just want it more than you do. You fancy that Bandit's jacket? It's yours, as long as he still isn't around to say otherwise. Same goes for everything else. Need a new ride? Why not grab a dunecrawler or a sandskipper? Blood, Sweat, And Gears features +150 unique, lootable items and vehicles, sure to keep your game always interesting with new approaches and challenges based on unique gear.

 Blood, Sweat And Gears will come as a tabletop game in a custom box, a laminated game map, instruction manual, detailed player pieces, dice and cards, all in one package. We will be working with the manufactures that you get only the highest quality materials and game pieces, it's our philosophy that you should get what you pay for. 

There will be no paid add-ons, all future expansions will be available regardless of when you purchased. Any additions to the game will be comletly free of charge. Free Shipping in the US, and low cost shipping for our player around the World. 

Risks and challenges

A few challenges of our project are that the custom board game manufacturer is no longer able to keep making board games at the scale and quality they previously were. Fear not! We are currently working with a number of other manufacturers to find you the best game you can get!

We also had a team member leave us recently, so we will have to fill in for him. We miss you Jack!
