It’s the end of the world, but there’s also an important deadline coming up.

We remade this jam game into a full coop game (English/German/Spanish):

Deadline of the Dead

If you want to keep your job, you’ll have to stay behind and pull some serious overtime! That's a sacrifice you're willing to make for a steady paycheck, right? Balance work, coffee, bathroom breaks, and not being eaten by zombies, in this corporate action shooter. Your goal is to finish all 20 jobs (blue).

This game was made in 72 hours for Ludum Dare 43. It ranked 11th overall and 4th in fun out of 1750 entries. You can play with mouse and keyboard, but we recommend using a gamepad.


  • [WASD]/[L-Thumbstick] to move
  • [Mouse]/[R-Thumbstick] to aim
  • [LMB]/[R-Trigger] to shoot
  • [RMB]/[L-Trigger] to interact

Had a funny plot and a great style of gameplay. Certainly felt the same way the protagonist did when I had to alternate between fighting and managing tasks


Funny game XD

i play this game and it's a cool game


Accidentally saw this on the ldjam website and it looks really cool. Looking forward to the remake version 


When double clicking the application file, the game will load to a black screen with a cross-hairs for a mouse, and then promptly delete itself.


Just found out that Avast sent it to the virus chest without warning.


That's good to hear! We were trying to look into your issue, but had no idea where to start... :D

Really good game, especially for a game jam !

This is quite the fun and stylish arcade style game, it's hard to believe it was all put together over the course of just 72 hours! You've earned yourself a new follower!
