I know, I know. How can we go from trying to make something unique like Death by Game Show to using RPG Maker?
Well, hold onto your horses as it makes sense. Trust me.
We’re not looking at RPG Maker to tell an intricate JRPG story but rather a series of fun-sized F2P episodes looking at the past, present and future within the Death by Game Show universe.
The game we developed never really dug deep into what we had hoped to be a comedic setting and our poignant fourth wall attempts failed to connect. So, we’d love to try and showcase the lore we built up but in a blatantly obvious way.
Our first story is called “Allen’s” and is about the first off-world junkyard where disgruntled male divorcees, mostly all named Allen are sent to work long hours to pay off court fees and alimony to ex-wives who won custody of Earth in court. After all, where else could bitter robots wanting to crush Earth and humanity really come from?
This is our Death by Game Show origin’s tale, of abandoned men and their junk collections in space. Sounds dull… Well think A-Team meets Monty Python in space.
And if it is dull… we won’t do more. I promise.
