For those new to the game, Life Goes On: Done to Death is a comically-morbid platformer where you use your character’s dead bodies to solve puzzles. On your quest to find the Cup of Life, you will sacrifice knight after knight to make your way through a trap-ridden world.
The gameplay of Life Goes On follows from a simple idea: what if dying didn’t mean game over? Instead, each time your heroic knight dies, a new knight is summoned to continue on, leaving a dead body behind. By summoning knight after knight, you make progress through a level by pressing buttons, springing traps, and manipulating dead bodies to serve as tools for the next hero.
It’s thrilling to have Life Goes On: Done to Death on PS4. Platform games work best on a console and using a controller has always been the most satisfying way to play Life Goes On. The game has been running amazingly on PS4, and we’re confident that players will be impressed. It’s been lots of fun playing with the features of DualShock 4, like playing the knight’s death cries through the speaker and creating custom rumble effects for each way a knight can die.
It’s like Super Meat Boy, but your bodies stay on the screen…
