Dead Maze is a 2D MMO game set in a destroyed contemporary world, filled with zombies. The aim is to explore the world, scavenge and craft as many items as possible, to survive the hostile environment and upgrade your gear and camp as you go.


Dead Maze's history begins a long time ago, back in 2008. Jean-Baptiste Le Marchand, now Atelier 801 co-CEO, started developing an ambitious survival game in Flash all on his own, and documenting his journey on various forums. Unfortunately, life made him drift away from the project after many months of development, but the idea of a complete survival experience never really left him, and is now being remade with all Atelier 801's experience from previous released games.


  • Play with thousands of other players and help each other
  • Fight hordes of zombies in a hack 'n slash fashion
  • Grab anything you see on the map and fight with it (yes even that old sock)
  • Coop AI: zombies will collaborate to hunt you down
  • Watch out for your items wear and tear, they'll break down after too many uses
  • Survival mechanics: manage thirst, hunger, health and various symptoms before you go exploring a zone
  • Find out the best craft recipes and improve your gear and your camp
  • Full housing features: craft dozens of furniture elements and arrange them as you wish in your camp
  • Community hubs of players' camps for better survival chances
