Face your fear!

Hey everyone!

It’s official - if you follow us on Facebook, Twitter or Google+, you might already know… But in case you don’t, here we go: Dead Effect 2 is coming to your mobile devices and PC/MAC this fall!

Check out the trailer HERE.

Thank you guys for your incredible support you’ve been showing us since Dead Effect 1. We wouldn’t be able to work on the sequel, were it not for you! We’re working really, really hard to deliver the best sci-fi FPS you can imagine. That being said, there is a couple of things we would like to run by you.

First of all, many of you have been calling for the multiplayer mode since Dead Effect 1 was first published. And we get it – the only thing that is more fun than blowing the heads off hordes of zombies is doing so with your friends (or complete strangers from the dark recesses of the internet, for that matter). We know, right? So yeah. Dead Effect 2 will come with a multiplayer mode. We can’t wait!

Another thing that’s been bugging both you and us is the Linux support for Dead Effect. As much as we would like to accommodate the wishes of the owners of Linux devices and make Dead Effect 1 Linux-compatible, we are currently lacking the manpower and time to do so. We’ve been focusing on Dead Effect 2 for the last couple of months – that’s a lot of stuff to deal with, people. Stay tuned then! We hope that you’ll all enjoy Dead Effect 2. Here’s a couple of cool screenshots to brighten your day :-)

Really, really enjoyed this. Perfect? Nope. Inspired? Probably not. Hectic spraying and praying while walking backwards alot? Yup. A serviceable story with generally bearable acting? Sure, why not. Believable, claustrophobic environments with a tense atmosphere around every other corner? Absolutely.

I'm 50 years old. In other words, I'm way, way ancient. As I approach having played through the campaigns of about four dozen sci-fi/horror/shooter/stealth games stretching back decades--some of the AAA variety and others that less than 15 people in the west even know about (Kreed, anyone?)--I am slowly learning that all interactive entertainment exists in context. Anyone grousing about this game probably has no idea what a truly bad game is. Dear complainers: While it may appear to have the proper trappings (and do a lot of borrowing), Dead Effect ain't Dead Space (or Doom for that matter). But to our benefit, it also isn't Run Like Hell or Alien: Colonial Marines. This game exists as a competent, complete (as in finished), challenging, bloody, entertaining, intentionally goofy (at times), highly derivative, technically stable title with generally wider-than-average blood spray patterns. I mean, what else do you want in an indie?

Enter Dead Effect's playground with the proper context, and it will easily rise to meet your middling expectations. (And I mean that in the best, brain-splattery way possible. Reload.)

Bar you not giving me an option and forcing this S%$^ upon me.... the game is pretty damn good fun. But your EULA is terrifying as hell. There is way more.... but you gotta pay to read it and by then you have already accepted and launched it to get to read it (you get no option to accept, launching the game is your acceptance) You do not have my permission to collect that from me.

Bet you have already though. If you didn't go all NSA on me it would have been a thumbs up.

I feel it fair for people to at least see only partially of what they accept playing these types of games.

Goodluck and may you do well in the upcoming rabies based ebola vaccine outbreak. Be sure to hoard all the zombrex, whoops, I meant Zmapp. As it will be worth a fortune.

By attaching Ebola to the rabies virus, Schnell's group was able to make a vaccine that may protect against both Ebola and rabies.

That will be the vaccine they pick, those will be the 2 viruses that mutate which = me with a cricket bat.

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=6WQtRI7A064 Bill Gates loves vaccines, listen to what he says we should use them for.

Oh yeah, I almost forgot, this game is pretty cool except for tracking EULA that you accept if you like it or not.

But I find it more exciting preparing for what they have been telling us they are going to do. Just look up what caused the 28 d/w/m movies outbreaks

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ben0g9odgeE If these guys are training then maybe you should too.

You can't tell me to put on my tinfoil hat because I don't need one, I was injected with a Thiomersal based tetanus shot (That is Mercury) So not only did I get a brain that works 10 times faster and nearly die but I got natural protection from mind reading gamma rays.

Edit: To be Fair they also state they do not sell all this information, But I still really don't care, taking it in the first place is what I seemed to be caring about when I wrote it. So I agree with drunk me and did you actually reset the funny counter on the review.

Also if my Fridget the Midget porn account details get hijacked, then i'll be coming for you.

It's pretty great. You can tell from the get go that a lot of time and effort has been put into it. It starts off slow and gets you into combat fairly easily. From there it gets harder but a lot more fun and creepy. It has a nice "Doom 3" feel to it, but the ease and accessability of the earlier DOOM's. You can load it up and start into the action right away.

If you're a fan of games like Left 4 Dead, Killing Floor, Doom, Aliens, or other FPS "Monster" genre games then I highly recommend this game. It has a campaign, survival, a nd a shop for customizing weapons. Along with hidden secrets in the levels such as credits for the shops, tablets for the lore, and much more.

Would throughly recommend this game.

Don't let the low price, the simple visuals and the fact that it's a tablet port fool you.

I would have never imagined myself playing a shooter ported from tablets on PC and having so much fun. First of all, it's miles ahead of the portable version, almost a different game. The fact that there are no microtransactions help you enjoy this as a wholesome product, albeit with a little bit of fair grinding.

A good zombie game needs 2 things: good zombies and good weapons. While this is far from many AAA titles, the weapons in Dead Effect look and sound meaty enough to feel the punch of every shot, but don't expect spectecular quality of animations and sounds.
The zombies however are a whole other dimension, and are at the core of what makes Dead Effect so fun, as they should be. Despite the small scope of the game, it features quite a few types of enemies, each of which in its turn has its preset of behaviors, some of which are randomnly generated depending on difficulty. In other words: zombies are dangerous and unpredictable, and demand the best of your attention, reaction and situational awareness. The dodge funcion is in this game for a damn good reason. This, combined with the very much Doom3-inspired leveldesign, make up for a great immersive atmosphere of an ever-so-popular contaminated spaceship setting. There's even a small cheesy story that works well enough to glue the events together and give the player a sense of purpose in addition to a sense of place.

If I had to complain about Dead Effect, which would be stupid considering the price, I'd say some will find the grinding tiresome (althought there's not THAT much of it compared to other games of this type), and not much variety beyond the campaign and the survival modes. While admittedly true, these problems didn't stop me from finishing the game twice, and I'm sure I'll be going in for a third time on Hell difficulty where almost every zombie hit is deadly.

In conclusion, Dead Effect is easliy one of my best surprise purchases on Steam. It's like Doom 3 and Killing Floor had a baby that doesn't know much yet but already shows great potential for being its own thing. Big thing, hopefully.
