Press X to Not Die - All Seeing Eye Games
We noticed today that our DLC were still listed as Windows-only when in fact they work perfectly fine on Mac and Linux! We've updated their store pages!

Along with CD-Rs discarded in gutters and mod readme files, homemade movies offer some of my favourite weird looks into strangers’ lives. So heck yeah I’m interested in Press X to Not Die [official site], a scrappy action-comedy interactive movie set in a town gone wild where you’ll have to fight everyone from your girlfriend’s flatmate to a juggalo. After a stretch in early access, Press X to Not Die launched in full on Friday. I had a few pals who made movies like this as suburban teenagers: (more…)

Our final and largest Early Access content update is upon us!

What do you get?
  • (Spoiler Free Description) A new scene featuring 30 new clips! There is a new decision point at the end of Chapter 2. You will need to play through the game from at least this point to see the new content.
  • Blooper Reel – finish the game on Hard to unlock!
  • Last playthrough stats – An overview of everything that happened in your last playthrough.
  • Expanded Twitter functionality – Now the game can construct a custom tweet describing the details of your particular playthrough.

Press X to Not Die will be exiting Early Access on Friday October 6, 2017.

Here's a look back at just some of the things we've added to the game since those first days of Early Access:
  • Play the prototype (DLC)! Because it's even better when it's stuffed animals trying to kill you.
  • Virtually all the bonus features, including the Death Galleries (inspired by user feedback!).
  • Subtitles! An entire subtitle system had to be implemented, which then paved the way for localization into an eventual 7 languages.
  • The switchover from the XNA Framework to the FNA Framework proved to be a huge undertaking but necessary to resolve many compatibility issues players had encountered. Who knew playing video had so many compatibility problems! The switchover also paved the way for releasing Press X to Not Die on Mac and Linux!

The Beta is now over and the "Juggalo" branch retired. All new content is now in the game's main branch.

Our final and largest Early Access content update is (almost) upon us!  We encourage adventurous players to try out the new content by switching to the "Juggalo" branch of the game using the steps below: 
 
How to switch to the "Juggalo" Branch:  
  1. Right-click on the game in Steam and select Properties.  
  2. Switch to the Betas tab.  
  3. In the drop down, select "juggalo" and close the window.  
  4. Allow Steam to download a game update to switch to the "juggalo" branch of Press X to Not Die.  The update will be small as the new content is already preloaded into the main branch of the game. 
  5. You will know you have switched successfully if it says [juggalo] next to the game's title in Steam after the update.  
  6. Once completed, run the game!  
     
What do you get? 
  • (Spoiler Free Description) There is a new decision point at the end of Chapter 2.  You will need to play through the game from at least this point to see the new content. 
  • Blooper Reel – finish the game on Hard to unlock! 
  • Last playthrough stats – An overview of everything that happened in your last playthrough  
As of Sept 29th, the new content is now available in all of our supported languages: English, Simplified Chinese, Russian, German, Brazilian Portuguese, Spanish, and Italian.

And on the 8th day, there was Mac support.

It is a very new build and we have limited Mac testing resources (Macs are expensive!) so if you have any issues, please discuss in our Mac discussion thread:

After months of work, we are pleased to announce that we have converted Press X to Not Die from the XNA Framework to the FNA Framework. What does this mean for you? Glad you asked!
  • Improved compatibility: The XNA Framework was incompatible with certain hardware including some models of GeForce GTX graphics cards, rendering the game completely unplayable for a small percentage of users, frustrating them and us alike. Those users should now be able to play the game!
  • Faster video loading: The XNA Framework always froze the game momentarily whenever loading a video, making for a less than smooth experience when a lot of video switching was going on. FNA totally loads videos without freezing!
  • Native PS4 controller support: Plug and play, the way it should be, no third party software required! Note that the button prompts will still display Xbox button icons but, you know, Steam itself does that too... Will address in the future!

While we were at it, we also made a few tweaks.
  • Higher video quality: We had to re-render all the video to use with the FNA Framework which also gave us new render settings that we used to increase the video quality!
  • Improved crash handling to more easily give you the information you need to tell us that we need to help you! (That sentence made sense, right?)
  • You can now select options in pop-up menus with left and right on the keyboard!
  • A number of minor edits to videos to improve flow & correct some editing errors.

We've tested it thoroughly but of course we can only try a tiny fraction of the thousands of possible configurations out there so please let us know any issues you may encounter!
