Dead Man’s Trail (DMT) is a zombie survival travel game for iOS and Android in the tradition of The Oregon Trail and Organ Trail: Director’s Cut with several modern twists. Beginning with the classic versions of Oregon Trail as inspiration, our game seeks to divert from the classic formula through several unique selling points: Select from one of several vehicles: the nimble 4-Wheel Rocket, the balanced Grave Digger schoolbus, and the powerful Ark tractor-trailer. Keep your team of travelers healthy and happy. Each have their own job that will help the party along their journey: firearm expert, melee expert, paramedic, and mechanic. Losing one will severely impact your progress. Loot randomly generated 3D cities for supplies and weapons. Be careful to get in and out before the horde arrives, or you may lose a team member. A vast arsenal of weapons including revolvers, tactical shotguns, field hockey sticks and katanas will enable your players to survive and thwack Zombies!

In celebration of next week's Game Developer's Conference, we're introducing a few a few new things that will give you insight into our process for creating DMT. These will include some new rewards for our Kickstarter campaign, new music from the game, and our new Twitch Dev Show!

First, we'd like to introduce you to the Pie For Breakfast Twitch channel and the new PFB Game Dev Show: Mondays at 7pm EST, a member of the DMT team will live stream their work on the game and introduce new features - you never know what we'll reveal on the show! Whether you're just a gamer, a casual fan, or a developer yourself, we will show you our tools and techniques for making the game!

Next, we just received the DMT main theme from our very talented composer, Akash Thakkar, whose credits include Ironclad Tactics, City Quest, and Heart Machine's Hyper Light Drifter. Check it out:

Lastly, we'd like to tell you about our new reward tiers on the Kickstarter page focused around showing you parts of our dev process:

  • We are offering limited numbers of digital art books and soundtracks in 2 new $25 tiers: Artsy Zombie and Musician Zombie. These will net you ALL of the digital content available at the $20 tier plus either an art book or soundtrack
  • At the $40 tier you can download a survival bunker's worth of digital content by getting BOTH the art book and soundtrack, along with the other digital content at the $20 tier.
  • We've also added a new $150 tier that nets you physical copies of the art book and the soundtrack signed by members of the development team, along with a backer t-shirt, stickers, and an HD wallpaper.

Stay tuned to or check out DMT on Kickstarter for more information and updates!
