EFFING DEAD - THE BROKEN PATH is a survival game like the amazing RE4, completely in 3D, with real-time light + shadows, glows, water physics and ragdoll physics. We love the genre and try to bring back the same feelings and joy we discover while we played with RE4. But, also, we try to improve some aspect of the game mechanics and give it our special touch.

Post news Report RSS Now with ragdoll (video)

After the last beta release we had a lot of comments and some youtube videos that make us analyze EFFING DEAD and think about what could be better. We are making strong changes and one of the most important is the ragdoll behavior on the enemies. Now shooting and fighting results are sure cooler but also funnier - ragdoll is sure a bit creepy and weird. Take a look to the short video.

We are now on strong changes and improvements on EFFING DEAD. The indiegogo campaing, comments, videos, discussions made us thinking that we should try to expand our game mechanic with some new and different approaches and maybe try a new art style with some shader. The gfx direction for us was good, but we are only 2(½) and the "realistic" style take us too much time with not so high results as we would like to have... so: time to step back and open a new door. :)

The game now is really different from what you have played BUT you can see a progression right now on the "old" version: the ragdoll on enemies hit. It's weird, funny but also creepy, sometimes... and the animations are sure smoother then the original ones. ;)

We think that with the next news we will show the new art direction and maybe some new features that we thought are interesting, different and sure amazing to play.
Iit's some kind of "Chapter 2" and, btw, it's also possible that we change the game name. You know, if things change, maybe it's good to call them with a different name.

Here the video, enjoy:

I'm definitely downloading the beta. You must be excited to get rid of stale death animations. I'm hoping it will be scary. There's a lot of psychological tricks you can use on players. For instance, just using a dim green light for a certain situation can make a player uneasy and imply sickness.
