Should we Kickstart Death by Game Show Part Ugh

It’s been sobering and alarming how the Steam marketplace has changed since we plotted the creation and release of Death by Game Show late 2014.

The statistic revealing 70% of Steam’s current content has been released since 2015 is something any and all PC developers should be noting down at this very moment. I know we have.

For all developers who have released in 2015 and 2016 to find Steam a struggle, this glut of releases is possibly part of the reasoning. Especially if you didn’t reserve 50-80% of your games budget for bribes, marketing, and sexual favors.

With this brand new knowledge we’re thinking of running a Kickstarter campaign to raise enough funds to wine and dine the gaming media, to bribe them into laughter while streaming and to subconsciously influence via blatant product placement. Good idea?

We joke of course. In truth, we’re looking at creating a new version of Death by Game Show that simplifies so that any and all can find fun in its strangeness. However, this is only possible via Kickstarter, so we are curious - should we even try? Check out the game and let us know.

Thanks for your support.

About This Game

Welcome to Death by Game Show. A game of pop culture, decision making chaos and hidden parodies starring U.H.Wutt. A lead-footed tub of goo sentenced to rehabilitation in a time of droid tyranny and human ignorance.

Become the smarts behind Wutt’s rehabilitation, or as the fine print calls it “kidnap-come-illegal-trial-leading-to-banishment-and-death-sentence”. Fight back against the tyranny, free the minds of humanity and find freedom-for-all!

  • Twitch Strategy - Death by Game Show puts survival and success into your own hands. It’s not about power but how resourceful and reactive you can be. Can you think your way to victory?

  • The Learning Curve - Anyone can spawn a droid but can you do it while grabbing coins? ...placing buildings? ...spinning for loot? ...dodging attacks? Can you react decisively and win?

  • Customization - You can modify the game’s text, give the droids a paint job and build your own levels. Can you make and share the best via the workshop and win a prize?

  • Story delivery - In Death by Game Show the story is told through short social exchanges, battlecries and hidden messages. Can you cut through the BS and find the truth?

  • Satire - Death by Game Show is about fictional characters, in a fictional show within a fictional universe based on our satirical view of modern day life. Meanings, metaphors and parodies are everywhere but will you spot them?

Death by Game Show is still very much being refined and improved. Reach out to us via the discussions as we take all constructive criticism seriously.
