Our new Indie Games subforum is now open for business in G&T. Go and check it out, you might land a code for a free game. If you're developing an indie game and want to post about it, follow these directions. If you don't, he'll break your legs! Hahaha! Seriously though.
Our rules have been updated and given their own forum. Go and look at them! They are nice, and there may be new ones that you didn't know about! Hooray for rules! Hooray for The System! Hooray for Conforming!
No Point In Giving Me Advice, Why Can't You Just [Let It Die]
"Senpai, it's me, Uncle Death! I'm here to help you through Let It Die! It's the best game ever made!
Let It Die is a weird spin on Souls combat mixed in with rougelike deaths and weapon/armor expendability like a Dead Rising or survival game all wrapped up in Suda51's drug trip ascetic. It's free to play on PS4 and has a pretty decent microtransaction model (you can pay for instant-revives to keep your gear and character, but you also earn them in-game). Whenever you die, you need to either resurrect or track down your now-feral body with a different character and murder the shit out of it to recover not only the gear but the character as well.
Your dead character also infects others games like invaders in a Souls game to present tougher enemies, and you can likewise send AI controlled extra characters to hunt down other players to kill and rob them, and there's a weird turf war sort of multiplayer where you can invade others Waiting Rooms to steal coins and SPLithium from them. You can also steal characters defending the Waiting Room to convert into your own characters, though I think they're copies and not actual player characters. Both the defending the Waiting Room and potential of having to kill your dead characters means you should always keep a roster of evenly-leveled characters so you have good defenses and don't have to kill your high leveled main character with a level 1.
Also you can melt a guy's facemeat off with an iron.
It's fucking weird!
Handy Game Tips:
-You can increase the character inventory and currency limits via the Invasion Metro thing's menu after you beat Coen, the first mini-boss.
-Save blueprints and materials, as you unlock weapons and armor to unlock via a vendor and can increase the potency of them by R&Ding them multiple times.
-New character tiers unlock over time, and they have certain specializations like more inventory slots or certain stats prioritized. Higher tiers of characters also increase the level cap.
-The Magistrate lets you increase the potency of food/beasts and mushrooms, and any of the 50k decals you purchase from her persist after character death.
-Masteries (your proficiency with weapons that add stuff like alternate attacks) carry across all characters
-Also, don't quit the game outside the Waiting Room, cause it counts as a death, which is the only big error with the game.
