A sequel, ''[[VideoGame/DeadIslandRiptide Dead Island: Riptide]]'', was released in April 2013. Techland has also trademarked the title ''Dead World''. A tie-in short film [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=GbrKIDv9wZ4 "No Retreat"]] was also released. On August 7th, 2013, Deep Silver announced ''Dead Island: Epidemic'', a {{MOBA}} with heavy emphasis on action and killing AI-controlled zombies. It was closed in October 2015 due to the lack of interest combined with very low playerbase.

Originally, Techland had proposed and designed a much more realistic "layer" system that modeled skin, muscle, bone being independently modeled and deformed in real time. According to Techland, [[WhatCouldHaveBeen their testers barely noticed]], so they went with a much less intensive prebaked damage model.

** In the Laboratory area, there's a scientist named West. Frankly, anyone who didn't anticipate problems with a "Dr. West" working with zombies hasn't seen ''Film/ReAnimator'', played any of the ''VideoGame/{{Splatterhouse}}'' games, or read the original Creator/HPLovecraft short story "Herbert West - Reanimator".

* MisplacedWildlife: The orangutans mentioned under RaisingTheSteaks below. Orangutangs are only found in Borneo and Sumatra, both of which are [[CaptainObvious quite a long way away from Papua New Guinea]].

* GottaCatchEmAll: Personal IDs, blueprints, notes and tapes that provide backstory... there are a LOT of collectibles in this game. So many in fact that you only need to find around half of them to unlock both of the achievements that are tied to them.

* NoHeroDiscount: Most of the survivor base areas have vendors who will sell you equipment. Despite the fact that the island has been overrun with zombies (thus making money useless), the fact that you constantly perform missions to help them, and the fact that they face certain death if you are killed, the vendors still insist on charging you money for their items

* NoZombieCannibals: Averted. Though it's relatively rare, it's entirely possible to run into one zombie eating another. However, they'll both get up to try and eat ''you'' instead if you get too close, of course.

* CerebusRollercoaster: The first ''Dead Island'' has a decidedly uneven tone, with (for example) things such as the grim scenery of survivors crying in desperate anguish being mixed in with your character gleefully lopping off zombie heads with an electric katana and spouting one-liners. It's as if the developers weren't sure if they wanted to create ''VideoGame/TheLastOfUs'' or ''VideoGame/DeadRising'' and just ended up with a slightly awkward mix (the heart-wrenching trailers are further evidence of this). For the record, though, if the first trailer for ''Dead Island 2'' is any indication, they seem to be sticking with the wacky route going forward.
