New Crosshairs:

I've added a bunch of new crosshairs that will hopefully make things easier if you need that extra help. Some are a bit nuts like the one above but I figure the more options the better.

I may have also fixed the issue with Dying Ember not giving Easy Mode achievements. I check the code over and over and it seems totally solid. I think if you didn't get the achievement then something particular funky must have been happening.

We'll get there in the end.

Have a good one!

Mini-Dead is coming soon and is FREE

Oh dang!

It's my birthday today which means presents! Mini-Dead is coming to Steam and will be free.

Be the first to knab it on May 3rd!

You can also play it over on but if you want certified Steam Achievements and a more polished experience then grab the Steam version.


Soundtrack DLC is coming soon as well as bug fixes, patches and all the good stuff that a good developer should do.

Thanks and have a good weekend!

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!
