Walk Thru Walls Studios is proud to present a demo for our debut game, Metal Dead. For those who don't already know, Metal Dead is a comedy/horror point...
Metal Dead is an old school, comedy/horror point and click adventure game packed with everyone's favorite undead creatures, zombies! This twisted tale centers on two metal-heads in the midst of a zombie invasion. After crashing their car in front of a medical research facility, they become trapped and are forced to use their wits to puzzle their way to freedom. Along the way, they must deal with a cast of characters who range from mildly deranged to completely insane. Features include: - Over 40 interactive rooms - 17 unique, quirky characters - 13 Achievements - Built-in hint system - Fully orchestrated midi soundtrack - Extensive novel-length script packed with comedy goodness Nominated by Adventure Gamers for "Best Writing - Comedy" and "Best Independent Adventure Game" for 2011!
In celebration of Halloween, the price of Metal Dead has been slashed, chainsawed, decapitated, and hacked down by 80%! We've also included a 15-page PDF detailing the development, release, and reception of Metal Dead.

Here's what some of the press said about Metal Dead:
Alternative Magazine Online
"Walk Thru Walls Studios have launched with an inspired debut effort... Stuffing a zombie head down your pants has never been so much fun!" - 8.5/10
"This first outing by two-man developer Walk Thru Walls floored me pretty much across the board with its humorous, gory, zombie-filled romp." - 4/5
"Admittedly, the zombie genre is getting a little long in the tooth, but Metal Dead approaches the apocalyptic with a fresh style and comic humour throughout." - 4/5 (Head Shot)
The Indie Shelter
"Recommended for adventure lovers as much for those who want to take their first steps into the genre." - 8/10
"Metal Dead is, you see, the closest we've come to the brilliance of Maniac Mansion since, well Maniac Mansion. It's the Shaun of the Dead of adventure gaming."

Highest Rated (3 agree) 9/10
I really enjoyed this game. It had a great story. The plot was funny and it was very original. When you use a theme like zombie apocalypse, there are a lot of things that are overused, but this game added some new and original twists. The gameplay was a solid point and click, and I only found one instance where I got stuck and had to get help. Things worked in a logical manner and it seemed like all the text for each item was unque to each item. I look forward to more games like this! \m/(>_<)\m/

James Cameron claims he isn't a dick anymore... But I think that was the secret to his success. Maybe we should all try to be dicks.

Brisbane's current passion is the food truck phenomenon. Is it a fad or is it here to stay?
