This is the second zombie gamebook from author Max Brallier, creator of Can You Survive the Zombie Apocalypse?, which was released in 2011. Inspired by films like Dawn Of The Dead and Mad Max, and the ‘vehicular combat’ PlayStation series Twisted Metal, Highway to Hell is set in a world where the zombie apocalypse is in full swing.
You’ve probably read your fair share of zombie stories. But this time it’s different. In a horrific and hilarious cross-country road trip (or rather, suicide mission), you must overcome obstacles of every kind to save zombified America from utter collapse. You’re inside your prison cell, waiting to be released. Your name is Jimmy El Camino, and you’re a badass—in fact, you’re a supreme badass. Rambo with style. Snake Plissken with a failing liver. You’ve killed more men than cancer. But more men than the zombie apocalypse? That’s questionable.
Your mission? Drive your heavily armed 1967 El Camino from New York City to San Francisco in order to save the world. Along the way, you’ll encounter Ring’s Most Wonderful Circus Show; you’ll battle zombies gladiator-style; you’ll be forced to deal with lunatics. And every step of the way, an army of drivers in armored vehicles is hot on your tail—because there is one man, the mayor of New York, who will stop at nothing to keep this apocalypse of the undead alive.
Available in Trade Paperback and as an eBook, Highway to Hell also features a cover by Alejandro Colucci, and interior illustrations from Chris Mitten, as shown above. Further information about the book and author can be found here at the publisher’s page.
