Custom Bosses 11, 12, 13 and 14!

And that's it! That's all for now!

Shout out to Mik1 for his really cool design here. I can't redesign it because it's already proper good:

Out of all 14 which one would you want to fight?

Also if you could, like, spread this around the internet that'd be really useful.

Summer Update:

The hardest achievement in the game is now a bit more possible. Originally it required completing the game in Boss Rush Mode, Easy Mode and One-Hit Mode enabled.

This turned out to be so difficult that it became punishing. So now, to get the achievment, you need to complete the game in Boss Rush mode and Easy Mode which means you get your full HP, opportunities to heal and you auto-heal to full HP when travelling to a new boss.

  • "End of an Age" Achievement now only requires game completion on Boss Rush Mode and Easy Mode.
  • You now heal to full when travelling to a new boss in Boss Rush Mode.
  • The Silenced now produces projectile from his centre instead of the mask.
  • The Silenced next attack will be slightly delayed when blasted.
  • The Silenced will only do a self-explosion if the glow exists when dipping below 20k hp.
  • The Silenced next attack will be slightly delayed when blasted.
  • Spectre takes a little bit more damage when in Boss Rush mode.
  • Real Puppeteer takes a bit more damage from blasts. If timed correctly should be possible to kill Puppeteer in two clock rotations.
  • Cursor is now visible on the input choice screen.

“I started playing it and I already love it, the boss's are difficult but not impossable, the movement and dodging are fluid are dont fell clunky. Overall a really fun (and difficult) game.”
9 / 10 – ElectricOverkil

“This game was actually f***in awesome. I had a blast. I bought to play on stream, hoping it would give me an hour or two of fun, but unsure of it. However, I ended up playing 'till I beat it.”
10 / 10 – Castoreh

“This Game is awesome if a rating system was available I would give it 9001/10 it is that good.”

About This Game

A game about boss fights.

DEAD is a game all about that blissful, satisfying feeling when you've finally complete a hard boss fight.
That feeling of a well deserved victory as you sit back in your seat and exhale a deep sigh of relief.

DEAD pits you against ten spooky, meaty, angry bosses with tight controls and a banging soundtrack!

You'll die. A lot. And you might end the universe in the process.

Game play

Dead is tough but fair. It is not meant to be impossible and does not rely on cheap "gotcha" moments. With tight controls the greatest challenge will be yourself. Learn the moves, perfect the fight and pummel those bosses until their dead!

Want to heal? Stand still as long as you can!
Need to recharge your dodge? Don't attack!


NG+ comes with the ability customize your difficulty in layers.

These modes do not come down to "they have more health now" but will truly test your mettle.

Great for speed running or to experience easy bosses with a fresh coat of hard!


  • A tasty original soundtrack
  • Full controller support
  • "Youtuber" mode which shifts the UI around to allow room for your face or Twitch graphics.
  • Achievements, trading cards, badges and all those extra steamy things
