These high-G injections have some serious side effects after pulling so many jumps.





"the DR2C official website posted:

Death Road to Canada is a Randomly Generated Road Trip Action-RPG.

You have to manage a car full of jerks as they explore cities, find weird people, and face up to 500 zombies at once.

Everything's randomized: locations, events, survivor personalities. There's a different story every time you play.

Find special events, rare encounters, and unique recruits. Find a grunting super-bodybuilder. Try to tame half-wild dogs.

Survivors have different personalities and quirks that may help or hinder you.

Create characters to find in the game. Make yourself, friends, family, and more! Share these custom jerks with others.

Fight or flee from increasingly gigantic hordes of slow, classic-style zombies.
Be careful, death is permanent!

Make tough choices in Interactive Fiction text events. Get different results based on the traits of people in your group.

Start in Florida and try survive the journey to Canada, the last zombie-free nation!

I need some audience participation in this low effort video LP. See the bolded part? Any of y'all want to go with me to Canada? I'll put you on the roster. DR2C not only chooses from the roster at the start but picks characters throughout the game. It's Canada or Death for the chumps on the list.

You need to tell me
--who you are
--your trait (choose one): Bandit, BERSERK!, Calm Under Fire, Charming, Civilized, Fierce Tempered, Frantic Whiner, Inventive, Irritating, Mysterious Past, Nuturing, Oblivious, Paranoid, Practical, Resilient Type, Warrior
--your perk (choose one): Athlete, Big Bruiser, Car Nut, Explorer, Fighter, Friend of Dog, Gun Collector, Gungineer, Health Care, Martial Artist, Mechanic, Megabuff, Surgeon, Ultrafit
--anything about your in-game appearance if you want. I'll just smack the randomizer otherwise.

If you have no idea what these mean, just pick what sounds good. Nobody explain it! The game doesn't explain anything, why should we? Pretend we're playing Mau. I mean if you've played before and you know what you're doing you can munchkin it or whatever.

Please don't spoil anything. This is a fresh save, reset all the unlockables, etc. I played the crap out of this game in 2019 and saw about 60% of it, so stuff is new to me too. If you drop spoilers, I'm knocking you off the roster.

I'm also looking for co-commentators if anyone would be interested.

I shall be Yams, the Inventive Car Nut.

As for appearance, I can just paste in a pic of my own DRtC character! I really like this game, it's a riot.



I can't remember if car nut actually does anything if you don't start with the character? I almost always start a run as myself. Regardless, it's my personal build, and so I am obligated to stick to it. At the very least I should become a car-repairing machine fairly easily.

I might be free for co-commentating at some point. I'm not sure when I'll be available over the weekend or the next weekend but I can let you know when I know. I live in the UK so time-zones will be a factor, I have another week of holiday from work but child-care is still a factor throughout it. If our schedules match up at some point then I'll be up for it.

I haven't played DRTC since the end of June last year but I put about 15 hours into it. I haven't done any co-commentary in about 5 years so I'll be rusty at both ends.

I think that you mentioned Discord. I haven't used it a lot but you can add me if you want: Rocket Baby Dolls#8790

Got mixed feelings about Mr. Notazombie (who is most definitely not a zombie wearing a mask) not getting taken along. On the one hand, we don't get to see him in action yet. On the other, things ended poorly for the first team.

Ah well, we'll just have to see if future teams (including the one that gets to have the not-zombie as a member) have better luck.

Incidentally, are there any rules regarding multiple submissions from the same user in this LP?

Things are probably going to end poorly for a lot of teams. I'm too used to playing The binding of Isaac on my controller and I either need to learn the preset button layout or change it to what I'm trying to press in game. I'm surprised we had four people for so long. Usually around day six or seven I lose somebody. Or the entire group.

Multiple submissions are okay. For now let's wait until the list gets shorter, that way people have a chance for their first character to show up.

We also have ZOMBO POINTS to spend. When I'm not at work, I'll post about how that works and entertain suggestions on how best to use our two (three?) points.

Adequacy Achieved!

We do have our passports, right? South Park Stick of Truth taught me that's the only way for non-Canadians to actually get into Canada.

Speaking of which, here's a character based on my favorite character from that game.

Name: The Canadian Guard (this is what he calls himself, and he won't reveal his real name)
Trait- Irritating- he constantly bugs other party members to make sure they have their passports, otherwise they won't be able to encounter Canada, and worries they may encounter dire zombies (like zombies, only dire!).
Perk- Ultrafit

Dresses like a Canadian Mountie or as close as the game can make it. Refuses to say anything about his past or why he's outside Canada. I expect the party to ditch him sooner or later, but keep him around if you want.

ZOMBO POINTS SCREENSHOT UPDATE



If you pick "unlocks" on the start screen, it'll dump you here with two random characters. The red robot shows the credits and the version number. The bird links to Rocketcat and Madgarden's social media pages. You get up to fifteen ZOMBO POINTS for following their pages. As I can only have ten points banked right now, this pushes me to eighteen points, and the game reminds me to spend them back to ten or else I lose them.

Off to the Perks & Traits shop!



The Last Bodybuilder increases physical perks, the Doctor unlocks new traits, the Debutante ups mental and social perks, and Rambeaux adds to weapon and shooting perks. All the traits and perks start at one and each trait and perk can be leveled up to three, spending that number of ZOMBO POINTS per level. Unfortunately, you can only choose from three options per trait/perk person and can't see new options until the current options are all leveled up. (Unless someone knows the method to the madness, in which case, please tell!)

I unlock City Seeker from the Doctor and use the Debutante to increase Friend of Dog and Health Care to level 2 so I can get my POINTS total under ten.

Over in the More Info booth...



...the blue robot shows off my all-time stats, the Mad Scientist lets me replay the tutorial, and the Data Deletion Dingus nukes your save files, unlocks, and custom characters.

Well, that about wraps it up. I still have nine ZOMBO POINTS to spend and could use some suggestions on future purchases. We could--

--wait, what's this?



(pretend I didn't miss the giant rodent hanging out next to the Perks & Traits shop)





Unomey the Unlock Gnome offers purchasable bonuses for future runs, starting with extra ZOMBO POINTS earned, increasing the POINTS cap and adding a camp trader that deals only in POINTS.

That should be everything. If you have any suggestions on how to spend or save our ZOMBO POINTS, post about it!

Personally, I'm all for earning as much as possible as soon as possible.

Since you're probably gonna earn more than one ZP in your next run, it'd be a bad idea to say "save up for the capacity upgrade," so instead I'll say buy Extra ZP 1 and bank the rest.

edit: ...and ninja'd by the next run. Figures. If that put you at 10 (haven't watched yet), go for the capacity instead.

edit2: Wow, you got a terrible team. Not one but TWO character ejection events?! I feel sorry for Yams.

Also, maybe you should've checked your combat strategy after the arcade machine; that would probably be why your partners ran headlong into the hordes.
