Death by Game Show is a twitch-action and strategy game, a hybrid where reaction and resources are equally important. Inspired by the movie Idiocracy, pop culture, and game developer Oointah's skewed sense of humor, this is a unique twist on off-the-wall-strategy.

“We set out to make a frenetic arcade game coupled with a quickfire strategy element—essentially a game covered in Elvis dust that we'd want to play,” said Malcolm Michaels, founder of Oointah. “During development, the team was inspired by middle-out algorithm and a shared affection for Idiocracy, and thus Death by Game Show's story has unintentionally become a love letter to writer/director Mike Judge's brilliant movies and TV shows.”

Death by Game Show Features

  • Blast through 50 challenges of rehabilitation: cause destruction, fight for survival, and beat pre-set conundrums!
  • You're chained to the Game Show Intimidation Masheen of Pwnage (“Bring out The G.I.M.P.”) - Use it to spawn droids, call in building support, and dominate the field of play.
  • Win an arsenal from the Wheel of Misfortune game show spinner and then risk it all as you struggle through many brutal challenges.
  • 10 different Force-crushing droids including the roller-skating ninja Madichin and the toothy British airborne bomb dropper RD-SLK. (BB who?!)
  • 10 defensive weapons & buildings that feature “Upgrayedd” technology, including:
    • Yeah *Bleep*! Magnets! - a giant toaster that shoots over-sized exploding magnets.
    • Droid Barracks -- wait, a more alarmist name would be… Kent Brockman's Killbot Factory.
    • Die Superhero Die – all superheroes, zombies, and minions were rounded up in the 22nd century and electrocuted with this invention.
    • Rust in Peace – delivers a Megadeth-sized barrel of bereavement.
    • The GOFU – protect yourself before the droids wreck yourself with this shield of love.
  • Six unique power-ups including the Speed Runner, It's Got Electrolytes, Sexy Time, and Mama Said Knock You Out.
  • Build challenges, customize skins, and edit all text in game - Make the Death by Game Show experience your own via the Steam Workshop.
  • Windows, Mac, and Linux versions will be available at launch.

Product Description

In the 26th century, humanity has become utterly and irreversibly stupid… more so. Only a lovable tub of goo by the name of U.H. Wutt demonstrates an acceptable level of intelligence, but the droids and robots who now run the world don't take kindly to U.H. Wutt's non-moronitude. Because of it, U.H Wutt has been sentenced to Death by Game Show.
