The 11 Best Indie Games of 2016

7. Death Road to Canada

There are a lot of zombie survival games out there, but none more quirky than a two week road trip from Florida to Ontario. The first thing that stands out is the zingy music; it’s chirpy, contagious and memorable and is an amusing antithesis to the desolate and desperate world on display.

The journey is full of broken cars, greedy bandits and constantly needing to replenish basic supplies. But, if you don’t make it to Canada, don’t worry -- just have another go. We love how the characters can be named after real life people and that there are other characters along the way who are inspired by pop culture.

When the zombie hordes arrive, players can literally use anything at all as weapons to defeat zombies, including regular weaponry. The ‘siege’ event is fun, as the area the player is in becomes flooded with zombies! Yes, players may fail, but with a couple of playthroughs, players will learn the intuition to succeed.

Overall, the game is a charming road trip game that, although occasionally harsh, is always fun. Death Road to Canada was released in July 2016 and is available on Steam and GOG.
