We’re excited to announce the development of Dead Frontier: Still Alive—a standalone cooperative multiplayer game set within the Dead Frontier 2D (DF2D) era coming to Steam.
Aiming to replicate the experiences of the original DF2D gameplay, there will be a matchmaking system from which to choose various game modes. The overall feel is Dead Frontier Night series meets SAS: Zombie Assault.
Basic Gameplay OverviewDead Frontier: Still Alive leans into the series’ action-horror elements.
Each match should last anywhere from 10 to 30 minute, but this may vary depending on the mode and the settings you choose. You can play with up to 5 other people (6 total) in any of these modes just like in DF2D.
Kill to your heart’s content
Infected will appear in much greater quantities than originally found in DF2D. The amount varies, but there will be enough to keep up a nice pace and fulfill all of your zombie slaughtering fantasies.
Loot for goods
Scavenge for supplies and equipment by looting objects in certain game modes. They will reward clusters of ammunition, medicine, barricades, other low tier items, and temporary equipment you cannot purchase.
Make big equipment upgrades using the marketplace
The items within here have preset values for buying and selling rather than being player run. You can also mastercraft or godcraft items, repair armour, etc. We're staying true to the Dead Frontier 2D era and limiting items to what existed then (2008-2009). All of the classics will be making a return and will be just as powerful as they were then.
Seamless transition between exterior and interior areas
Maps are seamless areas when it comes to interiors and exteriors if they contain both. So after the initial loading, there are no further load screens or fades. This means barricading doesn’t grant access to temporary outposts, but act as a temporary barrier to steer away and hold back infected until it’s broken. The size of each map varies, but on average is about the same as one or two blocks in DF2D’s Inner City.
ProgressionProgression will mostly happen within matches rather than in the MMO-style. With that said, it works the same way as with what you're familiar with. You choose your pre-outbreak profession that grants advantageous passive bonuses. You kill zeds to gain experience; doing that enough will net you a level up. From there you can allocate points into both stat and weapon proficiencies of your choice.
Long term progressions outside of matches will unlock higher-end equipment, professions, maps, mutators (modifies existing game rules for a change of pace), difficulties, and more challenging game modes. Now for the cherry on top, we will also be integrating Steam leaderboards and achievements.
Remastered Visuals and SoundThanks to using a game engine over Flash, plus other advancements in graphics rendering, we're remastering the game's visuals giving it major a face-lift. This includes eye-candy such as real-time lighting, shaders that create a unique 2.5D look, and added detail to effects like gore.
There will also be improvements to the sound elements. For example, satisfying reverb to weapon firing sound effects while indoors that reflects the size of the area. More excitingly, all of the old soundtracks you know and love will also be getting remastered.
This project is still in active development and an ETA hasn't been settled on just yet. With that said, you can follow our progress in the Official Dead Frontier Discord server. There's a dedicated category for the game there titled DF: Still Alive. Stop by and say hi, ask any questions you have, and share your ideas. :)
Now this is interesting. Look forward to playing it. Good luck!ReplyDelete
Glad to hear it. I'll keep people updated as development progresses. :)Delete
Well done Clay-bear, can't wait to give it a test run if it's going to be a thing. :PReplyDelete
Thanks Garp, means a lot.Delete
Nice game Post Malone, love itReplyDelete
Nice one haha. Thanks.Delete
Sounds good, my brother would love it...ReplyDelete
oh hell yea the best version of this gamme !!!!!!!ReplyDelete
I like most versions, but I have a ton of nostalgia for 2D. That's when I started. I will do my best to do it justice.Delete
oh yes!! or clayton make a mobile version of this lol! would love to play this regardless! brings back so much old memories!ReplyDelete
If things work out maybe it's something we can look into. For now I am focused on PC. As someone that started playing DF in 2D I'm pretty excited too haha.Delete
So, are you basically reviving and bringing back DF 2D?ReplyDelete
Not exactly, though I want to get as close as I can get to that feeling!Delete
please, create other server like df 3D.ReplyDelete
¨#_Dead frontier reborn
It would be great!!!
Mal posso esperar, sonho realizado!!!ReplyDelete
DF meets SAS.... almost sounds too good to be true :)ReplyDelete
looking forward to this
Yoooo I am so hype for this! Nothing has quite hit the sweet spot of gameplay for me since it originally moved to 2D. Thank you so much for putting work into this man :)ReplyDelete
Is there going to be a way in future, to participate in alpha or at least in beta version?ReplyDelete
Heya, very excited for the new game. I'm a very proud supporter of the community you guys have made over the years, greetings from South Africa! :DReplyDelete
Excited since that was when I first started playing the game, would there also be a mobile version of the game coming to phones? If it is I would definitely spend hours on it!ReplyDelete
Well... so much for leaving the franchise for good haha.ReplyDelete
Honestly this looks amazing. Dead Frontier could have been great but failed, but doesn't mean its over, I personally think he should've literally remade the same game (3D) and get rid of the Pay 2 Win System and pushed the game to steam it would be a huge SuccessReplyDelete
I say the same
did you think admin would make new server?Delete
well it's not pay to win if just limited edition items for short times like just 3 or 1 weak and it's gone
but the merc and old player will be buying power items
look at that wraith cannon it's doesn't been removed lol

There is a security flaw in the system and there is an email going out that sets your username and password when you click the link so your information can be stolen. Do not click password reset links that you did not request,they are FAKE and the developer hd all but abandoned this project and I could not locate contact info for the admin so I am posting this publicly for quick resolution.ReplyDelete
Poderia ser aplicada em mobileReplyDelete
I've been waiting ages for this!
I look forward to checking this out! keep up the good work mate.ReplyDelete
Very nice! Do you plan on reusing any of the new-created in game interfaces to drop Flash Player dependency out of Dead Frontier 3D?ReplyDelete
i would love this , when can we play this game . but i honnestly think we need more players in dead frontier , i know it's dyign but has a ton of potential . maybe transfer the game to a good graphic engine (remake it since remaking games is the trend rn) associate game to steam , i liked df1 more than df 2 it's just not the same, would have been better if df 1 was remade with new graphic engine with the same gameplay and style to cater newcomers bc let's be honest the graphics of df rn will not attract new comers anymore.ReplyDelete
just a suggestion, for the future of this game i want this game to live on for another 10 years or so.
I forgot the email i've registered, and i cannot enter in to my old account, Herphaitos is the acc, i just need to know the email i've registered itReplyDelete
Was this plan dropped?ReplyDelete
most likely.. wouldn't take this longDelete
As he say he didn't rush about this project, but he still develop it bit by bit and continued.ReplyDelete
I have some brilliant ideas for the original game I wouldnt give up on it DF1 is a solid game all you need to do is work on it divert all money back into the development of DF1 and your game could be as popular as world of warcraft I promise even if all you did was create third person gameplay millions of user would return and even pay to play!ReplyDelete
