The original Metal Dead now on Steam!
The first Metal Dead adventure available on Steam - Oct 3rd
Release date: 2016
Metal Dead: Encore is a horror/comedy point and click adventure - the epic continuation of the story that began in the first Metal Dead adventure.


The seaside village of Rodeo is usually a peaceful place to live... but once a year the Hoofs and Horns heavy metal festival rolls in and makes a hell of a lot of noise. Things get even noisier when an evil genetically mutated landshark bent on world domination escapes a research facility and rampages into town. You read correctly - a friggin' landshark... with the ability to infiltrate dreams and turn its victims into members of its own ever-growing ravenous undead army!

You play as Malcolm, a mild-mannered, intelligent, non-stereotypical metalhead drawn into all this madness against his will. Tagging along on his quest to defeat the evil nightmare-landshark is his best friend and ex-bandmate Ronnie. Ronnie has a problem, you see. He's a metalhead. Literally, he's just a head! An undead metalhead who follows Malcolm around on a brand new set of spider legs!

Metal Dead: Encore is a tale of friendship, heavy metal, and overcoming adversity in the face of the undead horde.

Metal Dead: Encore features:

  • Smooth hand-drawn animations
  • Beautifully detailed backgrounds
  • An intense, completely original ear-bleeding heavy metal soundtrack
  • Hilarious dialogues and a cast of bizarre, disturbed characters
  • Fully integrated achievements
  • Unique hint system in the form of Ronnie, your undead spider-head buddy
  • A heartfelt story full of zombies, gore and mayhem


Everything you see here is early progress. Expect the final game to be even more awesome.

And remember - heavy metal is your weapon!

Praise for the original Metal Dead

Rock, Paper, Shotgun
'I’d be more than willing to say this beats out early LucasArts efforts in pure laughs-per-minute.'

Alternative Magazine Online
'Stuffing a zombie head down your pants has never been so much fun!' - 8.5/10

Adventure Gamers
'This first outing by two-man developer Walk Thru Walls floored me pretty much across the board with its humorous, gory, zombie-filled romp.' - 4/5

Gnome's Lair
'Metal Dead is, you see, the closest we've come to the brilliance of Maniac Mansion since, well Maniac Mansion. It's the Shaun of the Dead of adventure gaming.'

Any release date yet? It seems the developer is constantly posting "almost done now" posts with no news whatsoever about a release date.
