A Way To Be Dead is an asymmetrical multiplayer (4v1) horror game where a bewildered doctor is on the hunt for a group of survivors who are just trying to survive.

In A Way to be Dead, players can take on the role of Dr. Riley, the survivors or even the zombies, and takes place in the universe of another title developed by Crania Games, Roots of Insanity.

A Way to be Dead provides the players with the opportunity to see the same storyline from different perspectives.

Whether you chose to fight in the infestation, or become a zombie and kill anything that walks, you have the choice, but the fun is mandatory.

Escape | Kill | Eat...

The goal is to add more content and improve the design of the game, while daily checking in with our community and using their feedback to guide us in our choices. Besides the great feedback we are hoping to receive from our players, we are already planning to work on features such as:

  • New levels with additional gameplay mechanics that will diversify the experience
  • More character types for all sides, with their exclusive abilities
  • Completely different game modes (e.g. Survive in a level full of zombies)
  • Matchmaking and a ranking system
  • A deeper experience/leveling system
  • Character customization and attainable per-character perks through leveling

  • Visual improvements (new animations, improved character designs etc.)

Key Features:

  • Play as zombies, victims and Dr. Riley
  • Ability to improve the character using the Skill points gained by winning sessions
  • Environmental elements can cause the victims to raise a lot of noise. As victims, avoid them. As Dr. Riley, use the relevant visual and aural notifications to track down your prey!
  • Multiple paths to choose to move around in the maps. As victims, scatter around using the underground tunnels safely and reach key points quickly. As Dr. Riley, lay in ambush around those key points.
  • Help the other victims and escape together, or turn into a zombie and get left behind in August Valentine Hospital forever.
  • Customize all the variables in a match. Duration until the lights are shut off, the amount of zombies, loot ratios, Riley's mutation limit.
