They thought they had escaped the terrors of Banoi and survived the apocalypse on a corrupted paradise. Their fate took a turn for the worse.

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.

About Dead Island Riptide with 5 comments by Henley on Jun 20th, 2013

After fighting our way through hordes of the undead in the pursuit of modding perfection we arrived at our top three entries in the ModDB Dead Island Riptide scripting competition!

First of all we need to thank our sponsors NvidiaDeep Silver and iBuypower for providing the fantastic prizes for this event. The top three winners will each walk away with a significant boost of gaming power and epeen with the first place winner getting a totally new custom gaming rig from iBuypower.

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

Without further ado here are your winners and soon to be grinners!

Third Place - Day & Night Cycle Henderson Town Mod

This mod came out of nowhere. One of the most unique entries in this competition the Day & Night Cycle mod does just as described, adds a Day and Night Cycle to the Henderson Town location within Dead Island Riptide. 


The author of the mod has stated that creating the mod he came across several difficulties the main one being that the area of the Henderson Town has a imposed "glow effect" on the water itself making the night effect almost impossible to create. However after several hours of work and a special thanks to some of the new engine code within Riptide he was able to get the desired effect. The area was quite imposing before the mod, so it is suggested if you're brave enough to face Henderson Town at night to bring a lot of health items, flares and brass balls.

Second Place - Kesslers Experiment

Kesslers Experiment came very very very close to actually winning this competition for one main reason, the mod itself could easily be considered a DLC for the main game and it fits perfectly within the game's world. Check out the video for all the details on how the mod actually works but needless to say Kesslers Experiment is a fantastic entry.


I mean who wouldn't want to mix a bunch of old chemicals and inject them into your arms? Seems like a good idea to me.

First Place - George Romero Survival Horror Edition

So here we are at first place and sitting at the top of the pack is none other than the George Romero Survival Horror Edition, for good reason as well! The mod while being a significant change to Zombie, weapon, survivor and item behaviors it comes packed with additional content sure to push your gameplay experience to even greater lengths.


There is an absolute plethora of different game mods and variations to the game added into the modification. Here are the examples of the extended gameplay modes on offer.

  • "Exorcist" mode. The women have been possessed by demons! They will set you on fire! Beware, they are very creepy!
  • "Gunner's Island" mode. The island has been taken over by gun crazy women! Experience Dead Island Riptide as a true first person shooter!
  • "Lilliput" mode. The little people of Lilliput have been zombified! Beware these tiny flesh eaters!
  • "Slashers" mode. The women have disappeared and the men have gone crazy due to loneliness. They will use their swords to slash you to pieces!

We just could not overlook the work put into George Romero Survival Horror Edition, the extensive editing and customization alone is worthy of a place in the top three mods in this competition but the overall package sealed the deal on first place.

Congratulations to all of the winners in the competition, proving once and for all the lack of any real tools or SDK's can never stop a motivated modder! Thanks again to NvidiaDeep Silver and iBuypower and enjoy the mods, as there are plenty more for Dead Island Riptide to be found.

I made some minor updates to George Romero Survival Horror Edition V9 and it's awaiting authorization. I included the latest version of my No HUD Riptide V3 file as well as packaged the Modern Fast Zombies No Taunt optional feature for those who prefer zombies who don't taunt.

I also updated the Known Issues section and updated solutions to the problem.

Thank you for your patience and please re-download George Romero Survival Horror Edition V9 when the updated version gets authorized -> Moddb.com

Have a nice Friday night and happy gaming! I'll post again once it's authorized :)

Coming up in George Romero Survival Horror Edition V9:

- Optional "Realistic Damage" feature. Smaller and weaker weapons, like crowbars, baseball bats, golf clubs, will have 25% chance to deal critical damage to a zombie's head in order to destroy it. Medium and average weapons like hammers and little knives will have 50% chance to cause critical damage. Bigger weapons like sledgehammers and swords have 75% chance of destroying the head right away. As always, 1 bullet to the head equals a dead zombie.

- Optional "More Zombies" feature.

- Improved "Matrix Mode" for more fun and action. Zombies can get thrown into the air when you attack them and you can jump to follow them around as you attack them in the air.

Bug Fixes:

- Zombies who "freeze" when using Zombies Can Grab feature have now been somewhat fixed. It still happens from time to time.

- Running zombies when using slow zombies feature have been fixed and are now slow just like the others.

Its Dead Island with small improvements to combat, coop and lootings but its even buggier and glitchy than the previous game. Although it is alot harder... which I would have liked if it wasn't so unfairly hard. It uses the whole waves of enemies while you defend a area (and in some instances infinite respawning enemies, these areas that you have to run passed which you might realize and fight till you die). The original game had maybe 1 instance of them both, here we get 3-4 in a shorter game…
