NOTE: WebGL has been re-enabled and is functional but I would still recommend the download as per the devlog as the WebGL build has a couple of minor issues.

Welcome to the wilds, survivor!

The world is in chaos after world leaders ignored an evolving virus that eventually turned the dead into walking corpses. With governments in shambles, some holdout organizations and communities have survived and evolved.

You are on your way back from a mission when an unknown assailant brings your chopper down in a small overrun town surrounded by forest.

Work with an unknown savior to survive, recover something of importance to her and escape with your life.

Dead Runner is a 3D FPS game made with Unity. It was made as part of the GameDevTV Unity3D course (the final project) and using Synty Studios' Polygon Apocalypse Assets.

- Pause and option menus

- Flashlight with battery power

- One pretty cool explosion!

Notably missing:

- Clips for guns... It would add realism :)

- Hands... This is more like Wolfenstein days :)

Feel free to leave feedback on what you would want to see added to the game next if this were a project headed for larger scale development :)

Loved it! At 71 years old, I think anyone under 70 can play this!
