In-Depth Interview/preview on Metal Dead: Encore
Metal Dead: Encore on IGN's list of "10 Awesome Aussie Indie Games You Need To See"!
Release date: Third quarter 2014
Metal Dead: Encore is a horror/comedy/apocalyptic/zombie/cartoon/gorefest/heavy metal point and click adventure game. Phew!

This is the epic continuation of the Metal Dead story - and for anyone who hasn't played the first, every copy of Metal Dead: Encore will come with a free copy of the original Metal Dead. That's right, two games for the already low price of one!


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.

We here at Walk Thru Walls Studios have learned a lot and made a metric buttload of improvements since releasing the original Metal Dead. 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.

Metal Dead: Encore is currently listed as PC only, but we're investigating LINUX and MAC ports and hope to make them happen.

Also, if we get enough interest and manage to make it happen, we also aim for full voice acting - but no promises as of now! That's up to you guys. Help us out!

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.'
