What the developers have to say:

Why Early Access?

“We chose Early Access because we want to make a better game. And the best way to do that in our view is to listen and respond to player feedback and see what works and what doesn't.”

Approximately how long will this game be in Early Access?

“About a year to completion, probably.”

How is the full version planned to differ from the Early Access version?

“The full version will complete the story that we intend to tell with our game and add all the necessary gameplay features and polish that we have planned out. The latter plans we have however may be subject to change depending on where the community prefers us to take the game.”

What is the current state of the Early Access version?

“The game currently features 3 different characters each with their own weapon playstyle and chooseable traits, 6 Gods with 10+ Skills each to choose from during the runs, randomly generated items to grind and progress with from run to run, the first level with 7+ enemies of different behaviors, 1 final boss, map shrines and other minor features. The base content lasts for roughly 3-6 hours, depending on player skill and luck, though there is a decent amount of replayability.”

Will the game be priced differently during and after Early Access?

“The game in Early Access will be at a lower price, according to the respective content. We will gradually scale the price with each major patch.”

How are you planning on involving the Community in your development process?

“We're eager to hear player feedback and discussions on the Steam Forums and our Discord and to incorporate it in our development process. We may conduct polls and ask questions about new content additions and feature expansions. A lot of the content of our game can go in many directions and we intend to choose that path alongside our community.”

About This Game

"Many heroes throughout history had taken on the journey to The High Mount to enter into Death's realm and end his reign. None to return.
Yet this time, an unsung higher power had chosen to back our heroes in their quest. Toss a coin in my hat here traveler, if you wish to hear The Saga of Death's Demise."
~The Bard

Death Must Die is a roguelite RPG bullet heaven in which you play as the heroes trying to defeat Death.
A pantheon of gods guides the heroes in their quest, each granting different powerful blessings.
Learn why the gods have decided to stand against one of their own and uncover the personal stories behind each of the heroes as you explore the Underworld.


  • Destroy the thousands of minions of Death
  • Face off and defeat the Guardians protecting each circle
  • Discover ancient shrines, mythical creatures and the other inhabitants of the Underworld
  • Choose from hundreds of god blessings to create synergetic and varied builds
  • Collect randomized and unique items to make highly varied builds and ease your next attempts
  • Increase your odds of finding lost relics, at the cost of empowering Death's legions
  • Attempt runs with a varied cast of heroes, each endowed with game altering traits
  • Unlock unique and hard to access achievements

(We are a small team of 4 core developers that have chosen to release this game into Early Access to support its further development and expansion, and have worked tirelessly on it day and night and we hope to be able to continue to do so to provide you with the best we can offer!)
