How late is too late?

Believe it or not, even though Death by Game Show has been an unparalleled disaster we are silently trying to turn it around.

Some people say that if it crashes and burns, leave it and move on. Yet I’m a firm believer that from ashes a Phoenix can be born.

What horseh*t.

What I’m actually a believer in is, not leaving things fudged up.

Almost anything, with the right TLC and jiggery-pokery, could become “something”. What that something is, is up to the market and how you market it.

Perhaps if we add zombies, goats, a top down twin stick shooter mechanic and repeated the same sh*t everyone else does it’ll work.

“Or make it a survival game where you chop down trees, kill pigs and make weapons to fight other players doing the same thing” shouted a team member.

Yes. Death by Game Show will become a top-down twin-stick survival game about making weapons that you can gank players with as they dress up as goats and zombies. Perfect.

Sarcasm aside, there is an audience for side-scrolling strategy games. Lemmings, Worms, Swords and Soldiers, Reus and others have proven this. Death by Game Show just needs to pivot and find them.

The journey continues.

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 released in 2015 and 2016 to find Steam a barren land, this glut of releases is possibly part of the reasoning. Especially if you didn’t reserve 50-80% of your games budget for bribes, marketing, and sexual favors.

With this brand new knowledge we’re thinking of running a Kickstarter campaign to raise enough funds to wine and dine the gaming media, to bribe them into laughter while streaming and to subconsciously influence via blatant product placement.

It’s that or use Kickstarter to try and move Death by Game Show to console…
