What the developers have to say:

Why Early Access?

“We've been working on Dead TrailZ since we made finals in the The Walking Dead game jam in 2013. Between weapons, maps, multiplayer and extended Twitch support, help us make the right calls for the final weeks.”

Approximately how long will this game be in Early Access?

“Three months if we are not seeing major changes.”

How is the full version planned to differ from the Early Access version?

“We would really like to implement additional weapons and try a few things with the AI rules. Both will enable new strategy level approaches.
Multiplayer Coop, where one plays the sniper and the other player controls the runner would be a ton of fun if there is interest.
If you are streaming, let your audience identify the soon-to-be hotspots for you to jump to.”

What is the current state of the Early Access version?

“Dead TrailZ is fully playable with two maps, both in endless runner and in strategy mode (15 levels per map). Graphic settings are available and should make the game run at 60fps on a broad range of machines. Full controller support with aim control is also part of the first EA version.”

Will the game be priced differently during and after Early Access?

“Depending on the scope we are going to take on during EA the price might go up, but not more than 20% to the current sales price.”

How are you planning on involving the Community in your development process?

“We'll be happy to discuss changes and add-ons through the forums & email. Feel free to ping us on Facebook or Twitter, too.”

About This Game

"Dead TrailZ captures a slice of the zombie apocalypse beautifully." - Eurogamer
"I just like sniping as a game dynamic, and I liked how the game was trying to combine that with tactical placement.” - TechCrunch

Escape the Apocalypse. Zipline between vantage points surrounding the battle field and use heavy weapons to cover your teammate on longer and longer supply runs.

Basic rules:
- Runner starts and ends at the train station
- Runner has a certain amount of ammunition which refills for each run
- Predict the runner's path and pave the way for him to return safely

The main game is about scavenging a series of maps, finding enough fuel & weapons in each stage to progress to the next.
Your runner finds supplies & fuel in the boxes, which he hands over to you after each run.
If things get tight, call the runner back any time.
Gather XP with your shooting kills to unlock perma-boosts and make sure to pick up some helicopter drops.

The first two maps can also be played in an endless practice scenario & also feature 15 strategic levels, each with a unique solution path that requires more than just shooting. Levels have a fix setup of where survivors come in and where the zombies are and can only be resolved with strategic and well-timed use of the available weapons and tools.
