Grasshopper Manufacture’s offbeat dungeon crawler Let It Die hits PC on September 26th after nearly two years on PS4. While studio head Goichi “Suda51” Suda isn’t director on this, his influence feels clear – as blood and rust-caked as Let It Die is, it’s a very silly game, with an absurd joke to offset every Mortal Kombat-esque fatality animation.
Part Dark Souls (especially in its combat) and part roguelite (there’s long-term progression), players climb The Tower of Barbs – a massive dungeon – at the behest of Uncle Death, the game’s ever-cheerful Swedish skateboarding reaper mascot. Let It Die is free-to-play, and after playing it a lot on PS4, I reckon it’s worth at least a peek. Below, the original 2016 launch trailer.
