Greetings! I'm Liam O'Sullivan, and I love video games. I love them so much, I even enjoy writing them! I'm the writer/designer/co-founder at Walk Thru Walls Studios, the Brisbane-based creators of Metal Dead and its upcoming sequel, Metal Dead: Encore. I co-founded the company in 2010 because I had a need to create the kind of game that I would personally want to play... a point and click adventure filled with heavy metal and zombies! Metal Dead was released in late 2011, and received acclaim from a wide variety of media sources. Let's take a look at a few examples!

"I’d be more than willing to say this beats out early LucasArts efforts in pure laughs-per-minute."
"My first impression of Metal Dead was: this game is funny. The polished writing surpasses that of efforts from much larger studios, and reminded me a lot of LucasArts in its adventure heyday. The jokes come quickly, and are rife with pop culture and movie references, hitting far more often than not. So much so, I'd stand writer Liam O'Sullivan's script up to anything written by Ron Gilbert or Tim Schafer. In addition to the witty dialogue, the story holds its own with unexpected twists, turns, and reveals—including an absolute riot of an ending."
