About

Dead End Road is an atmospheric driving game, with a low-fi aesthetic, perma-death and procedurally generated elements - Designed for multiple short "runs", featuring a unique "wish fulfilment" text parser system to generate a new ending each play-through.

You had been warned not to dabble in the occult, not to trifle with ancient knowledge that you could not possibly hope to understand. Yet you opened Pandora's box, and you did not like what you found inside.

Now something is pursuing you, terrorising you - Something that isn't bound to the rules of our reality. Ghosts? Some sort of demon? You wish you knew, although part of you is also glad you don't. What you do know is that you have to finish what you started - and fast.

Terrified and desperate, the only thing you can think of is to seek the assistance of the old woman who first told you of the ritual. She is the only one who can help you end this nightmare.

The Game is so minimalist, but still awesome. The retro look alone pleases. In addition, the Idea of a "hellish" Car Ride is good, in Combination with Challenges such as running Errands, paying attention to the Money, possibly having some Luck and still paying attention to yourself and the Car. After my first Pass, I made a Video directly to introduce and appreciate this Game. But I would suggest that you discover the Game for myself. The Price is more than reasonable. Definitely play several times yourself, because thanks to a perma death and procedural System you always Enjoy it. https://www.dailymotion.com/video/x57du80_dead-end-road-die-autofahrt-durch-die-holle-vorstellung-mit-moderation_videogames EDIT: As I myself noted, you should play several times not only because of the procedural System, but also to ensure that Find out The possibilities and secrets in the Game. 1 or 2 Whiteches are not enough for this. :)

Wanted to do a little Review quickly, even if I haven't been looking for long. The Game in itself really isn't bad, the Price is really a Joke, for 2.99 you can risk a Look I thought! It works very Retro, the Graphics are a Mixture of pixelated 3D and 2D Objects but has its own Great Style and so offers quite a bit of Shock moments. It's a rogue-like Driving Creepy game or anyway ... The Gameplay is quickly explained, first in a Ritual you can ask the "Dark Powers" for a wish that you have to enter yourself and you have to have acquired 3 Items until the End. Then you actually almost only drive the Car and have to deal with all sorts of Things (from Garbage Cans, ghost Drivers, People, etc.) until you arrive at a certain Destination, in between you have to Stop in Cities more often to Refuel, reduce Stress. Don't know exactly what this triggers, but believe that so more is happening on the Street) and buying Things. Pro + + Düstier atmosphere + Unique Setting + Graphic Style (if you like it) + Shock moments + + The PRICE Neg-When ritual at the beginning, the "Dark Power" usually doesn't understand what I write as a Wish. -: Edit: Unfortunately some Ends seem to be the same, I wrote Nonsense as a Wish like & quot ♥ ♥ ♥ ♥ ♥ ♥ in my Pants and in the End I get in the Text a Pair of trousers as a win, but nothing with any ^ ^... Pity-Graphic (if you don't like it ^ ^) Conclusion: At the Price you can't really do much wrong, who wants to play something strange by the way and want to scare some times, I can recommend it.
