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

Adventure Gamers
"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

The Reticule
"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

Gnome's Lair
"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."

The music from the trailer sounds just like something from an Adlib card.

I love small touches like that.

I recently downloaded this game and was wondering if there was anyway to change the name of some characters so I could troll a friend ? I would do it, but I can't seem to access a version of this game where I can mod it .

Unfortunately, that probably won't be possible... BUT, I'm curious as to what you have in mind? Which characters names did you want to change, and what's the joke exactly?

Great game, but why is it 1.4GB when there isn't even any speech? Even if every single image was a bitmap, that wouldn't explain it!

I don't know what was going on when you downloaded it, but it's only 116MB now.

I just updated to the latest installer (1.12), it's about 120MB, and the installed game is still about 1.43GB. The oddest thing is that it doesn't use external data. The executable itself, MetalDead.exe, is an outstanding 1.39GB!

It's a great game and all, it does look pretty nice, and being that it's 2012, I have hard drive space to spare, but the installation size is still quite a surprise.

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/
