Do you recommend playing this game with a keyboard or controller?

We developed Three Dead Zed with the PC platform in mind and then chose to port it to the Xbox 360. However, we recommend using the controller due to placement of the bumpers which gives a more intuitive response when changing characters.

I’ve seen videos of the game that look completely different from trailer. What is going on?

We’ve done a lot of updates to the game since our initial launch. We’ve updated controls, resolution, graphics, music, more levels, in game achievements, lighting, and hardware acceleration. So what you see is our older version of the game. We hope you like the effort we put into it. Check out the differences in our before and after trailer: http://youtu.be/FWK1sXLzAyE?hd=1.

What happened to the enhanced edition for Linux/Mac?

We initially developed the game in Adobe AIR. Unfortunately, due to limitations of AIR, we hit many roadblocks that did not allow us to make the game bigger and better without steep, unreasonable, hardware requirements. This issue worsened we discovered that Adobe abandoned support for AIR on Linux. In an effort to bring Three Dead Zed to Xbox Live Indie Games, we redeveloped the game in the XNA framework. Please be patient with us as we are seeking future options.
