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!

Probably!"



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.

    For the most part, it seems the correct choice on death is just drop the coins you've been looting into recovering them.

    Still good to use many slots, and theres some kind of classes thing going anyways.

    You can expand your maximum meatbags and currency limits from the invasion menu too.

    The main things that are cross-character are weapon masteries (hit harder, get new moves, etc) and the shop, which lets you unlock and buy stuff to bring on runs.

    Oh, you increase the Meat Bag and currency limits at the Invasion Metro menu? I'd heard it increases after you beat the first mid-boss, but I wasn't sure how.

    Added a helpful tips section to the OP to reflect this.

    Just learned this via the chat in the live Bombcast: the level cap of your Fighters increases based on the Grade of the Fighter. So all the starting ones will max out at 25, and to get beyond that you need Grade 2s.

    To get Grade 2:
    beat the tenth level.

    Apparently Mark Hamill is the narrator (not Uncle Death, I think, just the dude who says LET IT DIE when you boot it up) and Billy Dee Williams is one of the player characters

    the game's cast is good

    and it's made even better by the fact that the only character who speaks often, Uncle Death, is a Finnish tv writer???

    I played for a little bit. I did the intro, and picked a second character, and explored the waiting room, and got some presents.

    I don't understand how to save.

    I read the Bible thing, and it said go back to the waiting room, and then select return to title on the options menu, but I don't see that option.

    Maybe I need to die once with my second character.

    Nope

    I had to
    Kill my first character and make it through the first level to the elevator.

    I haven't played long but here's what I think you might want to do?
    I'm terrible and can't beat the second floor.

    I think you should do the first floor, use the elevator to go to lobby, level up, and repeat until you have good stats and equipment. turn in blueprints, sell stuff, level up, might get you a good foundation to play more.

    I tried to keep going without using the elevator and got all my characters killed and had to use 5k+ to retrieve them each, which is a much worse use of resources

    It certainly helps to get accustomed to Souls combat, but the stamina "meter" (aka your heart) seems more forgiving. Seems like you can pull off more attacks before backing off in this than a Souls game.

    Also every encounter has to be approached with much more caution since revives are tied to the F2P aspect.

    Yeah, I love Suda51 games, but I could go for a little more information

    Unless I missed a balloon note, I didn't see anything about the stamina meter

    It's cool that it's represented by your character's heart glowing through their body and clothes, but it's obtuse

    When you pay to recover a character you get back the money they had picked up. So it can be straight profit.

    Been playing this all afternoon. It's Suda and it's fun.

    Got 3 bodies lvl 26, and had a good run to a couple of areas.

    If your starting, run lvl 1 a couple of times and use the weapons you can. Getting the blueprints done is handy because you can just repurchase the item once it's been researched.

    Fireworks seemed lame until I unlocked the chain ability and it's way more useful as a weapon.

    Haven't tried multiplayer yet. Have spent some death metal on extra storage because having room is handy for mats.

    I think there's either a note or narration by Uncle Death when you fight two people at the same time in the tutorial about the heart and dizzy status

    Do later levels have different level styles? Like an office, or a mall, or a space station, etc. Or is it remixed sewers all the way up?

    So different elevators are in between some levels and escalators branch both right and left up as well on the map.

    Killing the bosses open shutters in other areas that you have may have passed.

    Killed the first two bosses, first one is easy, second one is a massive pain in the ass.

    Edit:
    Once you open lvl 4 you access the online TDM/Raid waiting room. Not tried it yet but you upgrade your bank etc in that zone.

    Woo, finally saved up the 50k to buy mushroom soup.

    Got mosquito tat. 3% life drain whenever I hurt anything. Yes, I do like having this permanently (the soup is random tat, but you don't lose it on death or anything).

    Raiding is stupid easy cash though. I have maxed out hammer. Buy hammer from shop for a bit over 3k... proceed to clobber people for 2.5-3k coins per raid, most people have all of one defender, and even level 25s can't take much more than 3-4 hits from me (because of that sexy, sexy 61% bonus damage from rank 20 hammer).

    Yeah so raiding is cool, not sure about the defense options because I'm plowing through defenders with my hammer/magnum combo.

    Had two raids with opponents in better gear and the hammer just tore them to pieces. Not sure if I want to put some fighters on defense detail when it's easy to beat the AI with a hammer like this.

    Floor 10 is the first proper boss. The previous ones are minibosses, and there's a real difference.

    But getting past 10 you can do without ever going down, though there are side paths you have to go down to open up and such.

    Guess who just reached Floor 11 and the second environment? (Also, unlocked grade 2 fighters, which have significantly higher base stats... like... comparable to my maxed out grade 1)
