DEAD YEARS: survive with your dog!

- indie
- open world
- survival
- exploration
- action

THE STORY
The game is taking place six months after a virus outbreak. You are one of the few remaining survivors, exploring the wastelands with the only friend you have left, your dog!
- Captivating elaborate story that will keep you hooked!
- Complete freedom to quest and to explore at your own pace.
- Hundreds of side quests with amazing rewards.

YOU
- Build strategies in order to survive
- Fifteen skills to improve like mechanics, first aid, scavenging, etc.
- Gain ability points and use them to customize your style
- Complete independent ability trees for your dog companion

YOUR DOG
- Your best friend, always at your side
- Knows how to fight enemies
- Has the intelligence to learn new skills
- Complete independent ability trees for your dog companion
- Level up as a team & craft armor for your dog

THE ENEMIES
Your enemies surround you - hundreds of enraged zombies, dying to taste your flesh. Bad news: they run! Even worst news: zombies are not your only enemies: wild animals, other survivors, nasty weather, bacterias and diseases... They all want you for themselves!

So, wear armor at all time, and don't go out there wearing a T-shirt! Also, keep your thirst for improving your combat and survival skills. Scavenge and craft to improve your gear.

THE LANDSCAPE
- Hundreds of unique locations to discover.
- Walk on abandoned highways, explore cities and desolate wastelands.
- Six months after the outbreak, this is a world like you've never seen before. Scary, but somehow deeply beautiful!

Hello everybody!

We've got some news!

Since the last time we posted, we actually kept working hard on Dead Years! For the last few months, we've been building the small touristic town of Mount Ox. This is where your adventure in the game will unravel! The level design of the town is completed, the engine is pretty much ready, and now we're working on adding some cool features, such as the skill system, the dog and human communication system, the quests, etc.

Another exciting news: we will have a booth at PAX East (Boston, April 22nd to 24th)! W00t!! It was a total blast last year, but this year we feel like pros : we know how to pick our pretzels, and how to make our booth more comfy. Also - well, the game is totally on another level! So, you NEED to come by out booth (#6224), say Hi, and play some Dead Years!

Until then, here are some new screenshots from the game! Stay tuned, and cheers to you all,

The devs (Nat & Phil)

i will definitely buy this game when it comes out on steam. it would have been really great for me if it was 1st person or 3rd person view like day-z or h1z1 but i love it though. cartoon graphic is truly awesome. by the way, when is the release date??

Hey there @INtense!! Visually it is Borderlands that inspired us a lot. And then, of course, we put our own twist in it:)

Hey @henito, please start to be happy ;) We're working hard to lower as much as possible the tech requirements for the game. Recently we exhibited the game while running on a Surface Pro 2, and it went super well on medium graphic settings. No other requirement, just pure pleasure:) (at least, we hope!)
