You Can Let It Die On PC Next Week
After two years of PlayStation exclusivity, Let It Die will finally be launching on Steam on September 26th, which is evidence that Grasshopper Manufacture is fully embracing Steam as a distribution platform as their infamous Killer7 is heading to Steam later this year as well.
For the unfamiliar, Let It Die is a free-to-play hack-n-slash dungeon crawler filled to the brim with personality and gore. In the near-future, chaotic-seismic activity plunged Japan into chaos as a massive spire rose out of the ocean. The game’s mascot, Uncle Death, encourages the player in their quest to reach the promised treasure atop of the Tower of Barbs. In each playthrough, the player will start stripped down to their underwear, and as the play progresses they will obtain stronger and better equipment. However, the game also spouts a permadeath system in which deceased players will become challenging NPCs in the playthroughs of other players.
While I am not a fan of free-to-play games, I think I will give the game a try when it launches. I’ve had my eye on it for sometime now due to Akira Yamaoka being among the many musicians to work on the game.
It also helps that the middle school edgelord in me is interested in anything with grim reapers in it. Additionally, Suda51, the game’s executive director, has accrued quite a reputation for making very interesting experiences unlike any other. Even if that experience isn’t great, it will certainly be a unique one worth having.
