HUGE Dead Drop Studios NEWS (Twitch Stream Recap! Stream Schedule! MORE ZELDA GIVEAWAYS!)
29 days ago – Wed, May 10, 2023 at 10:12:17 AM

Hey Survivors,

As you probably know, we had a HUGE Twitch stream with some big announcements and big giveaways. In case you missed it, we wanted to give you a recap and let you know that the fun is only just beginning!

Dead Drop Studios now has a pair of new Community Managers-- Myth and CMM! They'll be streaming consistently and frequently going forward. You can see our stream schedule for the rest of the week above! 

During each of this week's remaining streams,  two lucky viewers will win their choice of Zelda: Tears of the Kingdom, Resident Evil 4 Remake, or Diablo IV! These prizes are available regardless of your region, and for Zelda and Resident Evil 4, you can specify whether you'd like a physical or digital copy of the game (all copies of Diablo IV will be distributed via digital code only)!

To be clear, Evan will be focusing on Outbreak: Shades of Horror's development going forward, so he will no longer regularly appear on our Twitch streams. Although Evan will still be popping in now and again, our new Community Managers are taking the reins on Twitch.  The upside of this is that we will be live much more often, and we're really excited to spend more time with our incredible backers and community!

Don't forget to follow our Twitch so you can get in on the action!

As we mentioned the other day, Outbreak Collection Part 1 for Nintendo Switch is now available on Limited Run Games! You can purchase it either by itself or as a bundle with the Nintendo Switch version Outbreak: Contagious Memories! Outbreak Collection Part 1 includes Outbreak, Outbreak: The New Nightmare, and Outbreak: The Nightmare Chronicles on one tiny zombie snack of a game cartridge!

There's a new way to get ahold of Dead Drop Studios games and content!  We now have an official eBay store where you can currently purchase Outbreak: Contagious Memories* starting at $39.99* USD! There are even upgrade options to include a developer signature or a trading card! We also have a fan bundle* and a few other items available, with more to come soon!  Speaking of which...

We are raising money for charity with a pair of auctions that are now live on eBay! You can bid on a 9.4 CGC graded copy of Outbreak: Contagious Memories (PS4) and a 9.4 CGC graded copy of Outbreak Collection (PS4) from now until May 19th @ 6PM EST! We'll be giving 50% of the proceeds raised in these auctions to The Glaucoma Foundation, an organization with a FOUR STAR RATING on Charity Navigator.  As these are the first two Outbreak titles to EVER be graded by the CGC, please consider bidding to take home a special piece of Dead Drop Studios history and to raise funds for a wonderful organization.

Development continues on Outbreak: Shades of Horror! We are looking forward to sharing more information with you when we can!  In the meantime, you'll notice we'll be a lot more active on our socials, so please follow us on Facebook, Twitter, and Twitch!  You can also join our Discord to hear about upcoming streams and get the latest Outbreak news!  The future is looking bright thanks to your patience, support, and love!

That's about it for now, Survivors. Until next time, stay safe out there!

Hey Survivors,

This is just a quick reminder to tune in TOMORROW, May 9th @ 7PM EST over on our Twitch for a stream filled with announcements and some big giveaways!  We're happy to reveal that we will be giving away Zelda: Tears of the Kingdom, Diablo IV, and Resident Evil 4 Remake to two lucky viewers (winner's choice; digital code)!

Dead Drop Studios is growing, and we cannot wait to celebrate with you!  We'll be taking your questions during the stream on our latest announcements, on Outbreak: Shades of Horror, and more!

Also starting TOMORROW, May 9th @ 12PM EST, you'll also be able to pre-order Outbreak Collection Part 1 for Nintendo Switch from Limited Run Games!  This beautiful physical collection includes Outbreak, Outbreak: The New Nightmare, and Outbreak: The Nightmare Chronicles all on one delightful (and bitter) game card!  You can even buy Outbreak Collection Part 1 and the Nintendo Switch version of Outbreak: Contagious Memories together as a bundle via the site's drop down menu, so please take a look!

Finally, WEDNESDAY, May 10th is also the final day of the PlayStation Store May Savings sale! Until 11:59pm (your local time) on May 10th, you can still save big on Outbreak Co-Op Anthology for PS4 & PS5 as well as other select Outbreak series games!  If you need to catch up on the series before Outbreak: Shades of Horror launches, this is a great opportunity to!
