Play OverviewPlay Overview

Dead Static Drive is a traversal game about a nightmarish road trip in a sinister version of 1980s small-town America. Play involves moving through the world in your car, getting out to scavenge for supplies and defend locals. Unlike other driving adventures, your end is inevitable so it's more about prolonging your survival and helping people along the way.

You play by embarking on a never-ending road trip, travelling through little settlements in search of supplies and allies. You can choose to get out and explore a town but must be wary of the unnerving monsters who are never far away. Exploration is rewarded by finding diners, gas stations, party members and equipment. You can decide to settle down and build a bunker for yourself, but your sanctuary won't survive forever, forcing you to get back on the road.

As you progress, you need to equip weapons and acquire robust vehicles to kill the monsters. At times you also need to defend yourself against the local police. The long drive impacts your sanity, making it harder to discern who you should help and who, in fact, are dark forces out to get you.

The result is a road trip game where the horrors of the world steadily take their toll. The fun focuses on discovering the unnerving aspects of this reality as much as mastering the systems.
