Dead Static Drive Is A Survival Horror Game Set In Small-Town America – Video

Last week we headed over to Xbox’s gaming loft in London to check out a load of [email protected] games, to see what was on the horizon for Microsoft’s indie development publishing arm. And let me tell you, folks, there’s a lot of cool – and really original – titles coming your way in the not too distant future, so this week we’re going to give you a look at 6 of them.

First up is the survival horror game, Dead Static Drive, from Australian indie developer, Mike Blackney, which throws you into small town America, where you have to drive, loot and survive while monsters roam the streets.

With nods to Twin Peaks littered throughout, players will race across small-town America, from gas stations to diners, trying to survive against the odds in a world that has completely gone to shit. You’ll need to loot food & drink, load up on weapons – and cool cowboy hats – and recruit locals to help you survive, while avoiding monsters galore, like the large snake-like monsters that live underneath the not so mean streets of what was once a really idyllic part of the world.

Plus, it’s got a really, really unique art-style which is absolutely beautiful. It's worth giving it a look for that alone.

So, if games like State of Decay sans zombies are your bag, and you fancy checking out a game that Blackney refers to as “Grand Theft Cthulhu,” then Dead Static Drive might be right up your alley. Here’s 10-minutes of gameplay with Rich and myself having a good old natter over the top to brighten up your Monday.
