FREE DEMO WEEKEND!!
Hey guys! We were thinking of a nice thing we can do for the holidays and we decided to open up a paywall and put our game demo out for free this weekend! https://www.patreon.com/posts/3447939 Starting now until Monday anyone at all who is curious about our game can go to the above link and download it free with no strings attached! This is a very basic show demo we used at Topatocon and there’s a couple rough edges, but if you run Windows and you have a USB controller you can download it and play it yourself!
Thanks, and happy holidays!

Hi guys I’m back! There’s a new comic page up to read as well http://www.deadwinter.cc/page/548. This page took me a lot longer than I anticipated, I’d hoped to follow up the last page with a new one but I ended up spending longer on panel one than I did on the entire rest of the comic.
I wanted a nice night-to-day establishing shot to move time forward, but the way I had it planned meant I had to render the entire town, which I could have done as a quick silhouette but instead of the smart way I went back through my comic, referenced every single background building and arranged them all in a correct, 100% accurate placement within the town, so every scene occurs in a specific place in town and you can retroactively find those places on this panel. If you want to see a big zoomed-in version of the town I uploaded one here, in case Tumblr compresses this one too much: http://i.imgur.com/qyRGXxF.jpg. I documented my process in painting and building the town on my Patreon, if you’re a subscriber you can check that out too http://patreon.com/deadwinter.
Anyways, thanks for reading!

Dead Winter is an action-filled modern fantasy/sci-fi horror story about a post-apocalypse living-dead zombie infested present-day world. It isn't really about zombies, though. It's about people. It follows the lives of a rag-tag group of survivors who struggle to further their agendas and live through a lawless, disease-torn reality where everyday job skills take on new uses and nothing ever really goes according to plan.
