Dead State-CODEX

Dead State is a compelling, high-tension survival RPG set in central Texas at the collapse of civilization and the dawn of the undead apocalypse. As society is beginning to fall apart, the player must organize a group of survivors together, fortify a shelter, scout for food and supplies, negotiate with or defend against other factions, and maintain order inside the shelter as humanity teeters on the brink of extinction. Dead State is a full-fledged RPG featuring base building and management, turn-based tactical combat, and reactive story and dialogue with an emphasis on survival at any cost.


  • Turn-based, isometric 3rd person perspective using Iron Tower Studio‘s Age of Decadence engine (Torque 3D).
  • Developed cooperatively with Iron Tower Studio and other talented independent developers.
  • Set during the breakdown of society as emergence of zombies causes widespread panic and disorder.
  • Slow, shambling zombies. Spreads like a virus/bite transmission.
  • Serious examination of a national crisis or natural disaster. Humans and a lack of order are a bigger threat than the undead. Think Hurricane Katrina, Children of Men, Dawn of the Dead – NOT Resident Evil, Return of the Living Dead, zombie shooter-type games.
  • Game is about survival. Scavenging resources, exploring the area, dealing with other survivors, and managing a “shelter” of sorts are the main focus of the game.
  • Game is open-ended. There are characters and events that could happen, but the story depends on where you go, what you do, and who you meet.
