Dead Man's Trail is a zombie survival game for PC, Mac, and Linux in the tradition of classic travel survival games with some new twists. The game recreates the drama of modern zombie fiction by making team members core to the player's travel progress through randomly generated cross-country journeys. Each have their own job that will help the party along their journey: firearm expert, melee expert, paramedic, mechanic, and others. These characters must be kept happy and healthy through randomly placed obstacles and loot supplies in procedurally-generated 3D environments.

Each journey the player takes in Dead Man's Trail creates different and highly replayable undead drama.

This game is on Steam Greenlight! Please upvote and share:

We've had a good few weeks getting press for Dead Man's Trail and votes on its Steam Greenlight page!

Some highlights:

Bloody Disgusting did a preview, saying "what if you took The Oregon Trail, and threw zombies into the picture? Well, that’s exactly what Pie For Breakfast Studios have done with Dead Man’s Trail."

Likewise DC posted a preview and we were also mentioned in the Smithsonian's Eye Level blog post about the DC game development scene.

We also have some new gifs and screenshots of the game showing recently added or modified stuff like vehicle breakdowns, the new Plague Zombie explosion, a creepy new loading screen (work-in-progress), and tons and tons of zombies!
