Dead Island

What is Dead Island?

Dead Island is an open world action role-playing video game developed by Techland and published by Deep Silver. It is centered on the challenge of surviving a zombie-infested open world island with a major emphasis on melee combat. Dead Island features an apparent open world roaming, divided by relatively large areas, and played from a first-person perspective. Most of the gameplay is built around combat and completing quests. Dead Island is an action role-playing game and uses experience-based gameplay and character customization. The player earns XP by completing tasks and killing enemies. Upon leveling up, the player gains health and stamina, and can invest one skill point into a skill tree.


During setup, the program creates a startup registration point in Windows in order to automatically start when any user boots the PC. A scheduled task is added to Windows Task Scheduler in order to launch the program at various scheduled times (the schedule varies depending on the version). The software is designed to connect to the Internet and adds a Windows Firewall exception in order to do so without being interfered with. The primary executable is named DeadIslandGame.exe. The setup package generally installs about 81 files and is usually about 45.17 MB (47,359,928 bytes).
