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 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.
