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. Death Road is my favourite of recent Oregon Trail-y games, not just for having party members including dogs in trenchcoats and a magical girl who grows more powerful (and more anime) until she melts then explodes, and this update improves a lot I’ve griped about.

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.

Get On The Death Road To Canada

Ship it.

Do I really need to say anything after an image so full of perfection as that? Do you really need more convincing to give permadeath comedy survival horror Death Road to Canada a chance? 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 garden procedurally generated maps, characters which join your zombie battling group are also randomised. So where one time you had a whole squad of sane humans, now you might be half dogs, or three dogs and a bloke pretending to be a horse. Or Elvis. Or a panda. A trailer if you’re somehow unconvinced after the jump.
