Die Your Way Through Life Goes On: Done to Death on PS4 May 17

Life Goes On Done to Death Banner
What’s that saying? Something about standing on the shoulders of giants…

Life Goes On: Done to Death is a puzzle platformer that’s kinda like that, in that the combined contributions of a lot of knights is required to retrieve the Cup of Life for the king who’s decided he wants to live forever. Unfortunately, “contributions” in this case means things like letting yourself get impaled on spikes so that other knights can cross or freezing yourselves into blocks of ice so that the others can reach higher ground.

But it’s okay. In a twist of gaming conventions, dying in Life Goes On: Done to Death is not a setback; it’s the means through which you progress through the game.

So, like that saying, “over my dead body.”

Except literally.

Did I make it dark? It’s all funnier than it seem, as you can tell from the trailer below.


Developed by Infinite Monkeys Entertainment out of Edmonton, Alberta, Canada, Life Goes On originally released on Steam in 2014, winning acclaim at PAX Prime (PAX 10) and Best Character Design at the Intel Level Up Game Demo Contest.

Done to Death is an expanded edition that has “new features including an additional “sky” world called The Ruins, unlockable hats and weapons (think horse heads and spatulas), and other goodies like portals, zombies, and extra-challenging bonus levels.” The new stuff will be patched into the original release upon the PS4 version’s launch on May 17th.

Seems fun. Who’s up for this grail quest? Hit us in the comments.

A student of games, I play a bit of everything because I like to see what’s out there. Nothing better than first hand experience when it comes to knowing about games. Current game obsession: Anything MOBA (Paragon, Battleborn, Heroes of the Storm), except, ironically, the most popular ones, LoL and DOTA2.
