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 heard correctly - a friggin' landshark... with the ability to infiltrate dreams and turn its victims into members of its own evergrowing ravenous undead army!
You play as Malcolm, a mild-mannered, intelligent, anti-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, ear-bleeding heavy metal soundtrack
- Hilarious dialogues and bizarre, disturbed characters
- Fully integrated achievements
- A heartfelt story full of zombies
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!
