Puzzle platformer Three Dead Zed to be Released 7.7.14 on Steam Really – no kidding this time.

Gentleman Squid Studio is proud to announce their first major release, Three Dead Zed, is coming to Steam on Monday July 7, 2014. GSS recently released a similar statement touting a June launch. However, as new developers to the Steam scene we quickly learned how impactful their Summer Sales can be on the visibility of other games. Valve graciously guided our studio to move the release date of TDZ to enjoy greater exposure by allowing all that buyer’s fatigue a chance to wear off.

Three Dead Zed is an action-packed puzzle platforming game inspiring laughs with soul crushing “motivational” posters, turquoise cats, and plenty of elderly scientists to tear apart. You play a zombie in a testing facility, where a breakthrough new procedure has given the undead the ability to understand and obey commands. Once you prove yourself tame and able, the scientists imbue you with the ability to morph into two different forms - a strong brutish female who can take a wallop but can barely run or jump and a skittish kid who can run and jump but can hardly take a punch.

Playing a zombie and engaging in dynamic transformation between three zombie characters are key features of Three Dead Z ed. In an age where zombie games have flooded the marketplace, Three Dead Zed stands apart by finally allowing the zombie to fight back. TDZ will be on sale for $4.99 upon release for a limited time and then list for the regular price of $5.99.
