Dead Man's Trail is a zombie survival game for PC, Mac, and Linux in the tradition of The Oregon Trail-style games with several modern twists. The game recreates the drama of modern zombie fiction by making team members core to the player's travel progress through randomly generated cross-country journeys. Each have their own job that will help the party along their journey: firearm expert, melee expert, paramedic, mechanic, and others. These characters must be kept happy and healthy through randomly placed obstacles and loot supplies in procedurally-generated 3D environments. Each journey the player takes in Dead Man's Trail creates different and varied undead drama.
