Feature: Oregon Trail with zombies but good

Have You Played… Death Road To Canada?

Have You Played? is an endless stream of game retrospectives. One a day, every day of the year, perhaps for all time. Death Road To Canada [official site] sounds like a lot of other games: you're on the road, trying to reach a distant destination, and along the way you encounter dynamic story events and procedural levels for zombie smashing.

Bwaaaarp! Death Road to Canada honks out new update

As fun as Death Road to Canada [official site] is, you know what the post-apocalyptic road trip action-RPG has needed?

Death Road to Canada big update recruits Cold Steel CEO

Death Road to Canada [official site] has launched a huge update expanding and tweaking the zombie road trip action-RPG in exciting ways.

Procedural Pooches: Death Road To Canada

Death Road To Canada [official site] is a procedurally generated zombie survival game. A little bit of Oregon Trail, a healthy measure of cutesy gore and a dash of the surreal to add that citrus bite. Yes, we've seen games like this before but we haven't seen one that looks quite this peculiar. And on the Death Road To Canada, you can teach a dog…

Hurrah! – Neverending Nightmares, Hot Tin Roof Funded

Kickstarter can be a nasty, brutish place to those who aren't prepared for its rigors, and even some of the best and brightest come away penniless at the hands of its fickle whims. That is why days like today are the very best, because three very promising-looking projects crossed the finish line with pleasantly jingling pockets. Each member of the trio - exceedingly personal (and…

Do you even need to know about the possibility of teaching dogs to drive to check out the Kickstarter? Do yo- (YES - Ed.) alright fine. Along with your common or…
