New Year, New Start?
Development On Hold & Slow Development
Games Development
The game is going to be a first person and third person shooter, which will be free roaming.
The game is currently getting developed on the Unreal UDK Engine[], which will later on when we get the right amount of funding use the offical commericial [ur=""]Unreal Engine[/url].

We will also be adding Nvidia PhysX into the game structure. Which will add a dynamic and heart pumping exprience to the player of explosions and gore. The features will be:
  • Ripping and peeling flesh;
  • Fluid blood;
  • Damage systems;
  • And much more.

This game is far from even becoming a alpha build. Us, the Dead End Development Team know you are all excited about this game, but you are going to after wait a while longer for content to be published - we are developing and trying our hardest to bring you this game.

Becoming a Developer

If you want to help and become a developer or just support us, have a look at the disscussions page or our website for more information.

About The Game

The Dead End will be based within the United Kingdom, in a town called Huddersfield. We are hoping to make it a first and third person zombie shooter that provides heart pumping suspense and crippling tension round every corner. In the game there will be three main characters that you will be acquainted with. You will play out as them throughout the campaign, getting to know their secretive back stories along the way, however your opinions on the characters could shape the future that they may live in.

In The Dead End you are going to come across people that are trying they're very hardest to survive on the bare minimal... It will be up to you to be their salvation, or to be their last hope before they are cast a side in a world that forces the deepest and darkest actions within the most humane beings. With strong personalities spread across an entire neglected town filled with secrets, pain and dead men walking, you will ether find yourself with a reliable companion watching your back, or somebody else holding a knife to it when you’re not looking.

The story outline

Survival... you and your group will do whatever they have to do, to survive. Whether that be doing the dead a favour by slaying every withering corpse that they lay your eyes on. Or taking a more tactical approach with increasing avoidance.

Blood, gore and bone chilling excitement. Are sure you can handle the intensity of the weapons in this nerve savaging game? One minuet you could be ripping the head of a zombie with a deadly chainsaw. The next, you could be using a mere pen from a student’s desk in the local school.

During the game you will come across people that may be useful. They might help you and contribute towards you're ever growing group. Although they will be some people that you find may cause friction within the group, which isn't welcome when you have enough problems thinking about where you’re going to get your next meal for you and your group, trying to block out the thought that the dead are also going to come knocking for theirs.

Basic storyline description

You will play as one of the three main characters: James, Ryan and Kate. It will start off as a normal week getting to know I little about the characters you will play as. As the game goes on you will start to see the characters change... Most of the life they once lived will have disappeared along with their personalities they ones portrayed.

As you play the game you will have problems that you will have to handle in the way that you see fitting, however when situations are heated you will be forced to make a decision wether you are prepared or not.

With the world gone to hell and the dead arisen to feed on humanity: greed, anger, hate, love, desire and pain is all that still exists in this new world full of unanswered questions…
Unfinished stories... The last chapter of humanity... A new era, the era of the dead...


The game will be set in present day.
We are currently only developing single player - then will develop multiplayer later on in planning.

The Dead End, will be release onto the three main consoles: PlayStation 3, Xbox 360, PC.


Towards the PC community we are planning to make it a steamworks game (if VALVe agree).
Trying to support, low demanding computers, but having a high quality outcome.

PlayStation 3 & Xbox 360
The two consoles will maybe have a later release date, but may not have a retail sale, only online store/market releases. But will have all the features a PC, with console modding for advanced gamers, and other features.

We will try to keep you informed on developments of the game, also more art on this project will be developed and published for your viewing soon.

We will republishing our Facebook page and a website will be made so that you can stay informed on development.

We would like feedback from you so please leave comments. Your opinions are very much taken into consideration because we would like to take in to account that the public’s ideas should be thought about when developing.

We appreciate your support so far and thank you for your growing interests in The Dead End.But just remember... They're coming...

This is a rather interesting project to see, even as someone who believes that most independent zombie games are becoming more than a cliché these days and have little innovation.

However, one of my game design concepts was a zombie game set in a city (and the surrounding areas) the United Kingdom. Being British myself and believing the UK hasn't had enough limelight in the zombie apocalyptic genre (though Killing Floor is a great asset) which could justify the idea completely.

I will endorse this and see where we go from there. Though I would love more images and a video.
