is now available for Windows and Xbox One,

Dread Machine casts one to two players as government agents in a series of
escapades through New York, San Francisco, and all across the continent as they
seek to rescue the kidnapped President Roosevelt from the forces of evil. But

historical characters, like Zombie General Custer, Nikola Tesla, Annie Oakley.
