Description

Grand Theft Cthulhu. An existential road trip adventure game through a nightmare, nostalgic Americana world. Drive through a fictional USA, stopping in small towns, gas stations, and rundown city limits. What starts as a road trip evolves into a game of survival against a progressively oppressive world.

History

Dead Static Drive has been in the back of my head for a few years. I really wanted to make a game for the Gameboy Advance that had a lot of the same mechanics - survival, horror, and overhead adventure. Later, in 2010, I came back to the idea in a really short demo I made over a few weeks - using UDK and making the game a little more like The Immortal. But after UE4 came out I decided to revisit these older ideas but with a real push to add as much driving adventure and retro nostalgia as I could.
