11/30 EYEBALL Update - Part Two

Here is the second part of the EYEBALL Update! This adds new events, encounters, characters, weapons, and one new system: Golden Skulls. Read below for more details, and if you like what we're doing leave reviews and tell your friends. We completely depend on word of mouth!

These changes will also come to mobile, though iOS may take a little longer as we're also looking into sneaking some mobile specific control updates in.

Next Update: FEMUR

The next update should be coming early next year, probably in either January or February.

For FEMUR, I'm going to focus on adding a lot of new trading camps, both rare and normal. The number will either double or triple. In addition, I'm planning to add 4-5 new regular trading camps. Some of them will contain some special or unique attributes. That will make them somewhere in between rare and normal trading camps. We will also get in new characters and weapons.

I also want to do a bunch of new weapons to go with the trading camps, and some new characters. I'd like to start making the updates more focused on one area of content, especially after FEMUR. This will free us up to working more on prototypes and big features. I will probably start doing online polls for what people want to see next for content. More news on this later!


Changes this Update

Golden Skulls

- ZP skulls added! Touch them to get them to stop laughing at you for a moment and also give you a Zombo Point.
- ZP skulls can randomly be added to loot generated in most building types.


Rare Events and Encounters

- Road Event: Cursed Treasure. Permanently screw up a character in exchange for getting a pirate cutlass or other melee weapons. Or just accept a Goblin Gift Basket or the Dingusnomicon.
- Road Event: Chainsaw Hand Replacement. Also includes complimentary Double Barrel Shotgun!

- New rank of Rare Finder added. This will let you get up to 4 rare events per game and very slightly increases their chance (currently to 4/55 or so)

- City Encounter: Sewer Rodent
- City Encounter: Department of Motor Vehicles

- DMV Event: Completely Legally Binding Name Change


New Characters

- Rare Camp Recruit: Earnestine. Wielder of the Farmer's Shotgun.
- Rare Encounter Recruit: Tortuga. Some kind of green rodent?


New Weapons

- Sai: Like the ninja's kunai, except normal characters can actually use it.
- Chainsaw Hand: The tiniest chainsaw. Very efficient, slightly less damage output, stuck to your arm forever.
- Double Barrel Shotgun: Zombie obliteration for players with a big pile of shotgun shells saved up. Double the piercing of most shotguns!
- Farmer's Shotgun: Unique double barrel shotgun with +33% damage and faster reload times.


Tweaks and Fixes

- H*td*g Car and H*td*g Heaven now censored.
- H*td*g alternatives added.
- DON'T ASK, though I may write an explanation article for the above later.

- Text skip for mobile on touch
- Mobile adjustments for some narrow screen sizes

- Grim Reaper no longer drops his Scythe

- Removed the break chances when using the shotguns as melee weapons

- Big Dawg: Trader cost set to 35, down from 40
- Big Dawg: Piercing increased to 15%, up from 10%

- Typo fix: "the less busy side road"

11/27 Testing Branch (Windows/Linux/Mac)

This is it for all the big changes in the coming update. Let me know if there's any problems in the comments.

I was going to try to get one special trading camp in, but I'm going to wait on that and just do a big batch of them in the next update. I may try to sneak in a bunch of regular trading camps tomorrow, as they're easy to test. If I do this, I'm going to edit this announcement instead of making a new one, just so all the comments are in one place.

EDIT: NEVERMIND, some HDD corruption issues popped up last night. The above trading camp stuff is going to have to be moved to FEMUR.

INSTRUCTIONS

IMPORTANT NOTE: The testing branch and the retail version use different save files! Testing Branch saves also get cleared out on occasion.

HOW TO INSTALL: Right click Death Road to Canada on Steam. Go to Properties. Go to Betas. Select Testbranch, no password necessary.

CHANGES

- New Rare Camp Recruit: Earnestine
- New Weapon: Farmer's Shotgun, for the above character. 33% more damage per pellet than a normal double barrel, and fires 33% faster!

- New sprite added for Chainsaw Hand
- Chainsaw hand now does 0.8 damage per tick instead of 1 damage. This is mostly for flavor, as it's 20% smaller than a normal chainsaw.

- Double Barrel Shotgun now has 20% piercing instead of 10%
- Big Dawg: Trader cost set to 35, down from 40
- Big Dawg: Piercing increased to 15%, up from 10%

- Typo fix: "the less busy side road"

About This Game

Death Road to Canada is a Randomly Generated Road Trip Simulator. You control and manage a car full of jerks as they explore cities, recruit weird people, argue with each other, and face gigantic swarms of slow zombies.

Death Road is built for replay value. Everything is randomized: locations, events, survivor appearances and personalities. There's a different story every time you play, set in a world that doesn't take itself too seriously.

Death Features:
  • Up to 500 zombies can hunt you down at a time. Fight them, try to squirm past, or run.
  • Use the character creator to put yourself, friends, and family in the game. Have them show up at random to get eaten!
  • Find special and rare events, weapons, and characters with strange abilities.
  • Make tough choices in Interactive Fiction events. Get different options and results based on the traits of your party members.
  • Teach a dog how to drive a car.
  • Throw chairs. Get your characters strong enough to throw large sofas.
  • Most family friendly zombie apocalypse game on the market! Any gore explosion is in a cute style. We censor the word d*ngus once.
  • Tell people to "Cool it."
  • 2 player local same screen co-op where you control up to 4 characters!
