About

Welcome to Death by Game Show. A game of pop culture, decision making chaos and hidden parodies starring U.H.Wutt. A lead-footed tub of goo sentenced to rehabilitation in a time of droid tyranny and human ignorance. Become the smarts behind Wutt’s rehabilitation, or as the fine print calls it “kidnap-come-illegal-trial-leading-to-banishment-and-death-sentence”. Fight back against the tyranny, free the minds of humanity and find freedom-for-all! Twitch Strategy - Death by Game Show puts survival and success into your own hands. It’s not about power but how resourceful and reactive you can be. Can you think your way to victory? The Learning Curve - Anyone can spawn a droid but can you do it while grabbing coins? ...placing buildings? ...spinning for loot? ...dodging attacks? Can you react decisively and win? Customization - You can modify the game’s text, give the droids a paint job and build your own levels. Can you make and share the best via the workshop and win a prize? Story delivery - In Death by Game Show the story is told through short social exchanges, battlecries and hidden messages. Can you cut through the BS and find the truth? Satire - Death by Game Show is about fictional characters, in a fictional show within a fictional universe based on our satirical view of modern day life. Meanings, metaphors and parodies are everywhere but will you spot them? Death by Game Show is still very much being refined and improved. Reach out to us via the discussions as we take all constructive criticism seriously.

Death by Game Show reviews and comments

Very good tower defense to hang Out In Death by Game Show You are a human in a world dominated by robots. You'Re considered too smart and therefore you have to go through rehab, which is to survive waves of droids trying to eliminate you in what looks like some kind of reality show. As in every tower defense that boasts, you have to eliminate the enemy base to overcome the level. Some levels consist of surviving until time runs out and others destroy all enemies and bases. You Can use several attack or defense robots and also build buildings. In Addition, you have a clip that you can throw to catch coins and power-ups. During The levels you can also use a roulette that will give you money or a power-up randomly. The first levels are very easy, but the difficulty increases quickly and the game becomes a challenge. The art style is curry, very nice and such. The music is also decent. The best is the "Get to Da Choppa!" by Schwarzenegger that is heard when completing the levels. The downside is that there is a lot of text on the screen that becomes heavy to read. The game is also compatible gamepad, although I am more supporter of Keyboard + Mouse. Recommended for all tower defense lovers and games with high difficulty.

Death by Game Show is a parody of reality shows, only with robots and a smart human who is the main and funny character. So smart that he has to go to rehab. Depend on us to stop that? About gameplay. At the beginning is not complicated, level 1 is a sort of tutorial. From my viewpoint, level 5 starts to get hard and then, well, just trying to pass the rest! Something I don't like is the quantity of information you have on the screen and there's no pause button to read everything, so you have to be very fast to follow up the game properly. Passing levels it's easier to understand the powers and achievements. Difficult to get all the money! We have an audience and ratings and in the middle, a wheel of fortune that can help us with an extra money. The level editor, something I couldn't test, seems to be a great idea. Graphics are really good. Indie like and remembers some comic strips. Also, there are a lot to read, I mean rules, and that's a mess when you are playing. Rich colors and textures. I like the 2D touch. Music is nice. I always like good music but I understand is not always the main thing in a game, but sometimes could help. This is not the case, ambience sounds are great, just as we expect in a TV reality show. I recommend it! Lovely game, you can pass hours try to improve a level and get the achievements. I really recommend this game, funny and with enough levels to get frustrated, I mean to have fun! Congratulations developers!
