The Dead Island heroes escaped in a helicopter to the safety of a military ship, but when a furious storm hits and the virus suddenly spreads throughout the crew, the nightmare starts all over again, leaving hope drowning in the rising tides.

Thanks to all the talented developers who submitted their entries to the Dead Island Riptide scripting competition. Entries are now closed. Here are your top 10 submissions (in no particular order) that will be heading into the final for our judges consideration! Thanks also to the sponsors who are supplying the excellent prizes for the top three Nvidia, Deep Silver and iBuypower.


NOIR's Riptide Mod

A balance between realism, challenge and fun. The idea was to put more Zombies in Riptide and make it to a massive butcher game.

Gloomy Weather Mod

Dead Island Riptide Gloomy Weather Mod sets the right mood for a fantastic gameplay whether playing alone in a dark empty house or with a with a group of friends.

Rewired Gold Run

Rewired Dead Island Riptide scripts to add new events to the game itself. The affect the player this will give you something new when you play the game!

Kilroy's Dead Island Riptide Gameplay Tweaks

A collection of tweaked files for Dead Island Riptide that give the game a more FPS/shooter feel by increasing carried ammo, making firearms more effective and available earlier in the game and more!

George Romero Survival Horror Addon

The George Romero Riptide Mod was made in honor of George Romero, considered to be the "Father of Zombie Movies". This mod aims to replicate the behaviour of the Romero zombies, which means that zombies are mostly slow and can only be killed by destroying the brain. Plus a heap of other optional features!

The winner takes home a custom PC from iBuyPower
Second place gets dual NVIDIA Geforce GTX 660

Third place gets a NVIDIA Geforce GTX 660

Dead Island Riptide Boat upgraded

This mod is a great bit of fun for driving the boat, turning the old rickety boat into a speed boat! The engine has been upgraded and the boost has had a nitrous make over with a much better rudder for steering.

DIR Mod Crazies

Zombies are crazies!! This mod adds very fast and dangerous zombies like those from world war Z or 28 days later.

Kessler's Experiment

Kessler's Experiment is a mod that adds new lootable items and new craftable items to Dead Island Riptide. The survivors can make use of the mutagen chemical found in the old tunnels of Palanai to empower themselves and overcome the hoards of undead that plague the island.

Day & Night Cycle Henderson Town Mod

We never thought this was possible due to the amount of glowing water... but after many hours of work. I'm in the position to give you... A rotating day and night cycle for Henderson Town Mod.

28 Geeks Later

Zombies are now fast, powerful and extremely dangerous, they move fast and they will swarm the player and beat them to death quickly if they are not careful. The player has been given a small amount of health regeneration, which helps between battles, but it won't save you if you get swarmed.

We will be back in a few days with the top three winners for the competition. Best of luck to all those involved! Enjoy playing these mods, tell us your favorites in the comments.

I havent played DIR yet, I've bought it, but looking at these mods I'm wondering if my first playthrough should be done with mods...
