We’re having a droidgasm

So last week we spoke about a new route for the Death by Game Show entourage. It’s all still very much in discussion, but here’s what we’re thinking. Firstly, our WIP title is Droidpocolypse but it may become Droidgasm. Secondly, it is inspired by Clicker Heroes. I can hear the moaning already but remember, we […]

The reckless abandon of sense and fair value!

Yeeeehah, there’ll be a patch released this week.  Yeeeenah, don’t get excited it’s just a bug fix.  A requested fix by a gamer who has impressively completed the game, see, we’re caring developers.   So what’s with the radio silence last month?  Well, we were making the hard call to go bundling.  So expect to […]

Pre-emptive Good Intentions

In a previous blog I spoke about a looming update that would reduce the difficulty, and then went onto explaining how. That explanation, albeit with good intentions was pre-emptive. Don’t grab those pitchforks yet as there is still a patch coming. It will include 15+ changes, mostly minor but they should accumulate to a big […]

Another Year, Another Consideration

We’ve had some more feedback during the Steam Winter Sale and it’s pretty darn clear Death by Game Show is too hard, too unintuitive and worst still, doesn’t fit our envisioned target audience.   The reason it’s too hard is simple, it’s meant to be old school arcade and we’re still being blamed for players […]

Kickstart Death by Game Show Part Ugh

It’s been sobering and alarming how the Steam marketplace has changed since we plotted the creation and release of Death by Game Show. The statistic revealing 70% of Steam’s current content has released since 2015 is something any and all PC developers should be noting down at this very moment. For all developers who have […]

Please support creativity and difference this Black Friday

As a gamer first, and a developer second, I am tired and frustrated by the overwhelming support cookie cutter games continue to get. On a weekly basis creative games fade into oblivion because they get no coverage. The risk takers are dying off, creative roles are being lost to data scientists because of familiarity and […]

‘Tis the season to be jolly, Fa la la la la la la la la.

Quick question. At what point did the holiday season become all about Black Friday? Regardless, in honor of this years sale-extravaganza, we’d like to announce that over the coming season sales Death by Game Show will be scattered across the internet at an ultra-low discounted price. Forget 50%, 60% and even 75% off! Death by […]

We’re not in Kansas anymore

Games aren’t games anymore, they are visual representations of scientific laboratories chemically tricking your brain into addiction, false social value, and self-worth. And yes, we are game developers admitting that. Everything you see is timed and limited to a set of principles of how best to create dopamine and then cut you off before the […]

From old school hard to newschool friendly

Since Death by Game Show released a fair amount has been made of its difficulty, frustration and learning curve. We listened to the vocal majority who demand challenge and gratification via skill. The problem being, the most vocal aren’t supporting the game. With this in mind, it’s time to forget our own goals and look […]
