Life Goes On Launch Pushed Back 24 Hours

April 2nd, 2014

As with most news you read on the internet on April 1st, yesterday’s announcement of Life Goats On wasn’t serious. We hope that you enjoyed it though, and if you didn't see the fun, check out our blog post and video here.

Today we do have some unfortunate news though -- the Life Goes On launch date is being pushed back. Fortunately, it’s only 24 hours. The game will be available on the April 17th. We need the extra day to make some things work on our end, and we are very sorry for the delay. We promise that this token launch delay is absolutely not goat related...

To ease the pain of the extra day of waiting, we have some info about our later game content that we are revealing today. For more info, go to our blog.

We're also pleased to announce that Life Goes On will launch on Steam with a 25% launch week discount. This means that you can pick up LGO for $9.74 USD, instead of the regular $12.99 USD. The launch discount will also apply to international territories.

About the Game

Life Goes On is a comically-morbid platformer where you guide heroic knights to their demise and use their dead bodies to solve puzzles. On your quest to find the Cup of Life, you will summon knight after knight to be brutally sacrificed. Impale knights on spikes to create a safe path. Catch a knight on a saw blade (ouch!) to strategically land the body on a button. Freeze your knights into blocks of ice to reach higher ground. As you journey through treacherous and trap-ridden worlds, you’ll show no mercy to solve each challenging puzzle.

In Life Goes On, death is not a setback. It is the only means to success.

  • More than 50 levels that challenge your puzzle-solving skills in morbid, yet fun, ways.
  • Puzzles that can only be solved by figuring out how to kill knights.
  • Each knight you summon has his or her own unique name.

  • A new, unique name for each knight summoned.
  • Three worlds full of spike pits, lava, cannons, ice, and more.
  • Speed-run times and death minimums to beat.
  • A fresh look at dying in video games.

I was asked to check out Life Goes On for my first impressions video series. I'm very glad I was as it's a very imaginative puzzler that I've continued playing in my off time as a result of enjoying it so much. The game has a much needed sense of humour about things (since otherwise you're just commiting mass puzzle solving murder) and is a lot of fun. The puzzles themselves vary a bit in terms of difficulty but once you get a grip on the mechanics I don't think you'll ever get frustrated to the point of giving up. New mechanics get introduced with each new location you visit also, such as being able to freeze your knights or make them levitate.

If you're curious to see it in action my first impressions video can be seen below.

Life Goes On is a sidescroller that has you killing knights and then using their lifeless corpses to solve puzzles. It is morbid but enjoyable at the same time. Every new knight has its own unique name and the less knights you have to kill to reach the end of a level means a better score. I suggest trying out the demo for yourself.
