Nuclear weapons have the left the world barren and scorched the earth. Survival has never been harder for mankind. Resources are scarce as life has left this world. Rivers are dry. Many of wanderers never survived the icy nights as the moon crosses the sky.Roam a massive streaming map featuring ruined highways and cities. Survive and outwit other survivors, like yourself. Scavenge, loot, and explore during the day and find shelter during the freezing nights. Beware of the beasts and unknown as the sun sets.

I've made quite a bit of improvements and wanted to show some screenshots of Barren Roads:
Poppin a zombie
Some Busted Vehicles.
Hope you don't mind the development GUI. I use it to read indicators such as health, food, water, shelter, and blood. Screen shots are from an iPad Air.
I've got Barren Roads into a few testers hands and feedback was generally positive. One tester noted: think of it as a in your pocket, tablet, or Mac dayz in a fallout world multiplayer.
Barren Roads is the only game I know of that plays Mac vs iPhone vs Android vs PC vs Linux. I think I have the only games that does that. How do I know those platforms can play against each other? I've already tested it.
For those who don't know anything about Barren Roads, its a streaming open world multiplayer survival game based in an Apocalypse world. And it works. You can play online or via LAN or go solo without internet. There are tons of places to explore and tons of loot to find. And its permadeath. You die, you start over.

I'll likely ask a few of my twitter followers to help me with some testing. Stay tuned!!!

@GamesInspire yeah. But not very good. I had to strip everything for 512mb. Recommend you get a stronger device.

@Le0_0reo Yes. I use the same model now. But I'll move on and allow you to pick genders and character styles as I progress the game.

@EnaToR926 I'm doing my best to support as many devices as I can. It works on low end, but graphics will suffer even more.

@GamesInspire Bout 5 bucks. I'll probably run a first week special though.

@GamesInspire in a few months. It is coming along very nice. I'm happy with the progress. But it still needs much more. Stay tuned!

@deepwoody Its challenging for sure. I can't wait to get everyone online. I think I might have just nailed the online version.
