Oointah no longer working with UltraShock Gaming

Dear Oointah and Death by Game Show players we have an important announcement.  

In March Death by Game Show signed up to UltraShock Gaming, a Steam publisher who we believed could help us find an audience.  

Unfortunately, the partnership has not worked out and we have decided to go our separate ways. We want to thank UltraShock Gaming for their effort and wish them all the luck in the future.  

We ask you now to please support us on Twitter, YouTube or add the game to your wishlist if it interests you. Also please check out our Steam Group for Death by Game Show.

Brand new Death by Game Show trailer!

We are proud to unveil the new Death by Game Show trailer. Less chaotic, more clarity and hopefully enough BOOM to make it stand out. Let us know your thoughts on social media or on Steam.

Please leave feedback on Twitter, YouTube or at our Death by Game Show Steam Group.

New localisations on our Steam Workshop

It would be fantastic if you could check out our new trailer, perhaps a lets play video or even the store page to provide feedback on what you think we need to take it to the next level?

Death by Game Show – The Soundtrack

Oointah are happy to release the Death by Game Show soundtrack.  These seven tracks have been added to the game by Will Phillips in patch 1.03 and have a quirky, orchestral sound that is both fun and uniquely Death by Game Show.  The tracks include:

  1. Welcome to the Show
  2. Bomber Blues
  3. Droid Death Dance
  4. Fightin n’ Fiddlin
  5. Robotic Rhythm
  6. The Big Time
  7. Wutt’s Waltz

Patch 1.03: ‘The Better Late Than Never’ Patch will launch today

Patch 1.03: ‘The Better Late Than Never’ Patch will launch today.

Yet patch 1.03 is not the only announcement today.  We are also excited to be joining UltraShock Gaming, who’ll be working hard to promote this quirky and unique title.  

Okay so what does patch 1.03 include:

  • At launch, we were too cheap, in 1.02 we were too giving.  The economy of 1.03 falls in the middle, so it should be just right.
  • We’ve been back and forth on the difficulty, our inner masochist wants a hardcore challenge but with 1.03 it’s much more balanced so anyone (almost anyone) can play, win and have a good time.  
  • With a better economy and refined progress, you’ll want to experiment with the games many droids and buildings – in 1.03 you can buy anything from the studio.  Finally, you can put all that money to good use.  
  • Reduced on-screen clutter.  Bye bye signs, bye bye tutorial pop-ups and bye bye building UI.
  • Seven new audio tracks have been added.  
  • The tutorials and levels have been refined.
  • We’ve added a Droid Noir graphics option.  It makes the game-high contrast black and white for those who prefer something more grizzly.

The Oointah Competition is Over!

The deadline has passed and the winner is EeuorT for his workshop submission available here:

http://steamcommunity.com/sharedfiles/filedetails/?id=632262710

EeuorT wins the winner of the $100 Steam Wallet prize which will be delivered early next week.  

We just want to thank you if you have submitted a video, screenshot or workshop item to #Death by Game Show’s’ community hub since our games launch.  

Although we would love to continue this competition, it’s not reaching or enticing enough players.  Therefore the competition must sadly (for us) end for now.  There will be an announcement made in the coming weeks regarding our new direction.  

Thanks for reading and have a wonderful week.  

What and when is Patch 1.03?

Hey everyone, we’re hard at work on patch 1.03 and wanted to give you a quick rundown of what’s being done next:

  • Adding several new audio tracks.
  • Adding a toggle to turn off the background signs. This allows you to see as much or as little of the background story/context as you like.
  • Making challenges 9-1 to 9-7 easier.
  • More money is rewarded for coins, spinner cash prizes, destroying droids and capping inventory.
  • You can buy any item at any point. No restrictions.
  • Reduce screen clutter during tutorial levels.
  • Move building UI from game screen into Strategy Camera. Reducing screen clutter further.
  • Add VO for the game show host.

Patch 1.03 will be live before the end of March so if you have any feedback on the above please get in touch.
