Steam Big Picture

About This 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.

The demo of this game was awesome and promising. I preordered it and really waited for the release. The time passed extremely slowly. The release date finally came and I have the chance to play it in it's complete state. The only thing I can say now is this: YOU MUST BUY THIS GAME! IT'S DAMN AWESOME!

It's basically a puzzle platformer, with the twist that you need to die (several times) to pass each level. You need to burn, crash, electrocute, stick up, jump to death with your knights to progress and all of these in the funniest ways possible. The puzzles have several unique method I've never seen in other platformers before.

There are several goals besides that you need to reach the cup, like time, number of deaths and you need to feed Jeff on each level, but these are just optional.

And the completely free DLC (for previous owners) with several new puzzles is coming soon!

It's a bit expensive, so get it on sale.

It's exactly what it looks like in the trailer. You have an endless stream of soldiers. When one dies the next one spawns and you can pile up the corpses to use for solving puzzles.

Interesting combination of puzzle game and platformer, mixed with the macabre fascination of using comically stalwart little knights as actual stepping stones to victory. With a host of challenging achievements, hillarious references throughout (especially to Monty Python), and a good diversity of challenge, this game is sure to please anyone looking for a lighthearted, unique take on puzzle gaming.
