About

"Dead of the Dead" is an Action-Reflection Zombie-simulation game

"Dead of the dead" is the subtle mix between action/reflection and survival mechanisms allowing you to choose the way you want to play whenever you want (infiltration, action, destruction ,,, ) in a post apocalyptic world full of allusions and references to movies, shows cartoons  and games of the same kind.

 You dream of being in the shoes of a zombie, don't you ?

    If you do, you are a bit strange, but your dream finally becomes real with "Dead of the dead" !

As any good Zombie, you don't have any memories of your past .
Your only reason to live :  to eat and prolifarate ( Speack  of a dream life !)

Here you are,  ready to break out with your starving horde in the heart of the city. In order to appease your hunger for brains,  there is surely something that can drive you forward .
Let's go and find it !

King of flesh

      "Dead of the dead" can be played in "touch", mouse or controler  with a gameplay reduce to the essencials in order to be able to understand instinctively how to proceed .

- Strike your ennemies, catch them or use elements of the backgrounds to get out from the most delicate situations.

-  Increase your capacities to interact or be stronger , quicker, more intelligent. Increase your number or even transform yourself  into an invulnerable berzerker for a short duration.

- To catch a human, you only have to aim at him . Once the target is taken you will have to perform a little  "Quick Time event (QTE)"

If everything goes well you 'll have the choice between :

- BRAIN eating brain...THAT you know how to  !

  It will be the first possible action when you catch a human ... But eating brains isn't totally for fun.  It will give you the possibility to interact with elements from the surroundings for  a short time (this is indicated on the top left corner of the screen,  with an icon showing the remaining time you have before the controlling effect  stops ! )

-STEAK: You're Hungry ... so hungry ...

  After a small brain, let's go to the main dish !  By Selecting  "Steak" you will be able to enjoy the delicacies of the entire body of the selected human.As a consequence you will receive a chop.  These will be the symbols of your life points, but will  also enable you to increase the level of the "Berzerk" gauge.  Once it's available, select it : it will make you quicker, voracious and invulnerable for a short duration !

-HORDE: nobody likes to stay alone !

   Here you are, ready to become the Boss !
Now you can convert a human by selectioning the icon "Horde" As the leader you will be able to order your flunkies to attack or move ( or even sacrifice themselves ^^ )

The more you use a skill,  the better it will become !

You can  equip stuff and interact with elements from the surroundings only when your "Brain" gauge is active (to active it, you'll have to eat the brain of a normal size human after catching him )

The game is taking place in different environments, borrowed from references of the same sort. You will be able to see  mythical places once again, reinterpreted for the occasion !

The project goes futher ahead taking its inspiration directly fom the web and the video games culture, while making fun of the cliches of horror movies at the same time.

.

Playing again ...and again .. and again...:

Several levels of difficulties will be available for each world with a ranking system to compare your scores .

.

As usual, most of the required funds will go into development and graphics . If the fundings is sufficient,  we will increase our team with a sound designer.

Currently limited to £ 100 000 it can be possible to extend the game even more (adding contents, improving the quality and completing the team ) But it's important to have your priorities stuck in your head before reaching for the moon ;)

 *Special offer: Zombie face !

Here is an example of what your personalized zombie could look like ( it's currently a limited offer ) that  would allow you to live the adventure  of "Dead of the dead" impersonating a hero with your own face !

Nowadays, with the advance of the independant video game industry, it is possible to create incredible games with reduced team !

You only need nerves of  steel, a motivating concept, and hundreds of liters of coffee !

There is nothing greater than the possibility to create an evolving universe and enabling it to live …or die…”

We are working full-time on "Dead of the Dead" and are more motivated than ever to demonstrate the extent of our capabilities !!!!

Risks and challenges

Dead of the dead is an original game animate with:
"Spine" (http://esotericsoftware.com/) and the development engine :
"Unity" (https://unity3d.com/),allowing eventual quick portage to other platforms.
Dead of the Dead was originally developed for the PC/MAC/Linux; however depending on a successful funding drive, the game could subsequently be deployed on Android /IOS supported devices (smart phones, IPads, etc)and XBOX one/ PS4.

At the present time, we are only two developers working on this project. If funding enables, we hope to expand our team in order to work on the finishing touches on our sound system, musical score and optimizing the game play.

To us, creating games goes far beyond the concept of work
– it is our Passion! We are committed to producing an exceptionally high quality game. Funding our project will enable us to deliver on our commitment to quality!
