Dead Man's Trail is a zombie survival game for PC, Mac, and Linux in the tradition of classic travel survival games with some new twists. The game recreates the drama of modern zombie fiction by making team members core to the player's travel progress through randomly generated cross-country journeys. Each have their own job that will help the party along their journey: firearm expert, melee expert, paramedic, mechanic, and others. These characters must be kept happy and healthy through randomly placed obstacles and loot supplies in procedurally-generated 3D environments.

Each journey the player takes in Dead Man's Trail creates different and highly replayable undead drama.

We've been quiet here on IndieDB, so here's some updates from our hiatus!

  • Dead Man's Trail has been GREENLIT! We'll have our Steam market page up within the next few weeks but we were one of the lucky games to make it in right as Greenlight was ending. Thanks to our supporters for their help!


  • We're in the middle of a UI overhaul to make the graphics a bit cleaner. More to come from that soon!
  • The latest is that we're illustrating some of our travel events with hand-drawn comic-style images. We're using these to bring the game closer to its comic book inspirations and help flesh out the world of Dead Man's Trail a bit.


Here's one in the initial pencil stage:
