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.
