Deadskins' podcast-cherry gets popped and mopped by Metal Shark Studio
Release date: August 2015
This game represents the BETA version of DEADSKINS; the Multiplayer game with a Single Player story mode. With the help of your feedback, playtesting and a kickstarter campaign, we'll have it produced by August 2015.

Play the video game as a Native American warrior, possessing powers only known to the Great Spirit. Or choose to play with friends in a crazed, bloodthirsty, zombie war party that unleashes a psychedelic Hell while riding demonic buffalo! This game offers Team Death matches, Capture the Flag, and Horde Mode. Or play the campaign to start harnessing the power of the "spirit world" and begin an epic battle with the ghosts of your ancestors to become the most powerful warrior among your tribe!

Deadskins is a work of fantasy set primarily in a fictional Spirit World...
The story begins in a fictitious past of North America. Back in a time when it was primarily inhabited by early natives.

It centers around a young brave whose tribe has just been massacred by a war party of mysterious origins. Shaman from many tribes come together, to discuss in a great meeting of medicine. Some describe seeing a blue man walking the earth, and wherever he touches, the land becomes sore. While others share visions of a world turned upside down and where everything living falls into the sky. "Our Mother is sick and the Great Spirit seems to wander without purpose".

Using the powers and secrets of your elders, you must journey on a vision quest to repair the Spirit World and heal Mother Earth. Quickly become a warrior and fight a psychedelic battle against a man who has forgotten that he has died. He is a man known as the Dead Skin walker. And his power over the dead, was strong enough to punch a hole through to the land of the living, sending many lost spirits in search of revenge.

Ancestral spirits come under an evil spell and begin to rise from the earth and mount war parties of the Undead. This ravenous group of zombies attack everything they see and they quickly become many like the stars. They are DEADSKINS; a crazed and bloodthirsty tribe of the undead. Mounted on zombie beasts, the demonic warriors begin to cross over to the land of the living and curse all creatures they encounter. You must follow the smell of death and leave it your trail. Everything rests on your shoulders so...
Good Luck!
