Dead County is a survival horror game that's heavily inspired by PS1 horror classics such as Resident Evil, Silent Hill and Alone in the Dark.

You play as a delivery driver who, after an accident involving his van and one of the undead, has to make his way home through a town overrun my zombies!

This games uses tank controls and has a heavily emphasis on inventory management just like the best of the late 90's survival horror games.

Watch the making of this game on my YouTube channel here.

Resident evil and puppet combo vibe

@ Blake McKinnon,

I'm obviously too used to FPS views. This game became frustrating to me, because of its odd [camera] angles, so, at one point, I just gave up.

This doesn't mean that I want you to change anything about this game, but I said I was going to play/record your other 2 games, and this is to let you know, I won't be adding this one, 'Dead County' to my collection, as I quit the game. I made it into the building, that as far as I came [shotgun shells].

I'm sure there are lots of guys out there that are really good at playing these kind of games, unfortunately, I'm not one of them :o]

So, that's my bad, not yours.

No problem, this type of game definitely isn't for everyone.

Man, yet another game of yours that I loved, Blake! All of your games that I've played have been excellent! I got strong Resident Evil 2 vibes from this one! I left the link to this game in a Discord server that I'm in for creators so that others can check it out! Let me know if you want to join it too!

Thanks very much for checking it out! glad you liked it :)

Awesome game! Reminds me of the good old days playing Resident Evil. Good work!

Thank you!

ahh

i want to ask, how maany hours do you end this game?

Came here from Youtube this is great I get a lot of resident evil Nemisis vibes. I really like this game! Keep up the great work!

Really enjoyed the game. Was not ready for uncle Bobby.. but he also wasn't ready for me. >:)

Happy to hear it! thanks for playing!

馃槉馃憤

Thanks for playing!

I liked it

I like how opening doors gives off that old RE vibe, like, with the black background and then the camera zooming into the open door.

I like this game

This game was absolutely amazing man! Keep it up :)

I have a blast play this game! Keep up the good work man!!!

Glad to hear it, thanks for playing!

CAN YOU PLEASE MAKE MORE GAMES LIKE SLAY BELLS

I'm working on a horror fps game at the moment, which has some similarities to Slay bells.

ill be playing that as soon as it comes out

Awesome, glad to hear it!

Umm... Mr. Blake, Me and my Cousins LOVED "SlayBells"! So can you plz plz plz make "SlayBells 2" (I Beg You, Please!)

I'm glad you liked it, I've thought about it and I might one day, but it probably won't be this year.

crap, thought it'd be soon

This is a pretty cool game. It has this Resident Evil feel to it. It also takes up little space.

this game is really cool

please check out my video

not everyone has a mouse y'know

I don't know if it was just my computer, but there was a delay to the turning. I've played other games with this control scheme, but I feel like for a game like this with more gunplay and running away from zombies, this ended up being something that made the game less enjoyable, as I often got killed while waiting for my character to turn a corner, or while trying to aim my gun. I was just wondering if it would be possible to add a mode where you use the mouse to stear

This is just a bad copy of Resident Evil !!!!!!

May i ask what you didn't like

well dont you think zombies horror games  are a little bit boring by this point ,this retro graphic is good but try with new concept...this is my honest opinion. 

I don't think games like resident evil are boring, but just general zombie games are boring, but this is more resident evil than plain zombie game

well my point is why making just another zombie games when you have more than 300 zombie games already ,try with original idea ,like slay bells that was really unique...

Well yeah i understand , i just like games similar to the night of the living dead, or resident evil

hiya i played the game and i gotta say great job on the game my friend. it really had that PS1 feel.  tho the story definitely needed some work but overall it was a good game. keep it up :D i made a play through if anyone wants to check it out!

   

loved the game man really does give off that resident evil/silent hill PS1 vibe Loved it :D

Thanks for checking it out! I agree that the story is lacking but it wasn't a main focus of this one. I don't have any plans of expanding on this game but I'm working on a much bigger project at the moment.

This game is such a great rendition of the classical RE gameplay. It scratched an itch for a new fixed-camera title I didn't even know I had— amazing work!

Thank you, there does seem to be a lack of games like this but they are in a pretty niche genre.Glad to hear you liked it :)

Made a video

Thanks guys!

didnt play a lot of games like this growing up so it was a cool experience

I didn't grow up playing these kinds of game either, I was a bit too young for it, but I enjoy playing them now. Glad you liked it.

Loved it! It has that retro styled theme and the camera angles from R.E damn! 10/10 Would play again

Thanks very much :)

Thanks very much! glad you liked it.

This is really fun game and new experience for me too. I like this game that everything is does not make scene for me but Nice game!

Thanks!

This was FUN! The mood, lighting, and particle effects were terrific.Game just felt good to play. Yes, the camera can be tricky at times, but that is part of the challenge imo. The dev could have punished us with it, but instead he took the time to playtest to make sure it was balanced. At one point, I came around a corner and the camera switched and there was a zombie right in front of me, almost to the point of being a jumpscare! I think that's part of the magic of this style of game. Anyhoo, here is my playthrough(loved it!):

Thanks for playing! I really enjoyed the video, sorry you had to replay the start of the game, it looks like a bug that I never came across :)

Oh I see the retro style, I feel the resident evil vibes, I like it

Awesome! thanks.

I love the nostalgia of this and it definitely reminded me of how deeply I hate that control scheme!! This was so good though, I want more!!

Thanks very much! I do agree that controller support would be good, I just haven't really looked into how to do it. I have another game coming out in about a week called Slay Bells, it's a first person Christmas themed survival horror game if you want something else to play soon :)

Well it鈥檚 festive and it鈥檚 violent so that sounds about as perfect as a game could possibly be 馃槀馃槀

haha yep, it's certainly both of those things.

This game is amazing and should be commended for being fun and creative if you get a chance to play it I highly suggest it.

Thanks very much!
