Set logic aside

And play the game where losing is actually winning and your character may be the dumbest person to ever live!

After waking from a terrifying dream of your own untimely death, you attempt to make your way to the Finnigan Brothers' Fun Park for its last day then back home again in this all new text-adventure from CoaguCo Industries. You must survive 10 pages of ridiculous deaths and traps spanning over 157 ways to die with no discernible way to navigate to safety. It's like playing Russian roulette with five chambers loaded, but more frustrating.

Warning, this game is mostly reading. Lots and lots of reading.

The game features

  • All-new Choose Mode so you can decide your fate instead of the computer
  • Soundtrack by Azucar
  • Two holidays modes: Halloween and X-Mas; active on their respective holidays
  • The Saboteur: fuck over people in the community or the computer and vice-versa
  • 20+ achievements
  • Of course, all your stats are backed up on the Steam (if playing the Steam version) and CoaguCo's servers

Recent News, Very Recent

One Way To Die: Redux Edition - New Sabotage Mode

Hey there, death-seekers. So the redux version of the game is nearly ready and we decided to drop a post about how the new sabotage system works.

If you remember, the old system allowed one random player to set “traps”, per page, that all other players would run across in their game. Collectively the players could un-set traps and, after enough were un-set, that would boot the saboteur and randomly select another. Well, that system didn’t work too well and caused a lot of network traffic for our server; mostly through poor optimization.

We later revamped it to do more of a community pool of traps that updated more slowly and allowed players to earn more saboteur points faster. This is what the current version of the game is using and isn’t really what we wanted to do.

With the upcoming version of the game and a new version of GodotSteam, we can finally have the sabotage system more like we intended. So when you boot the game up and click play, you’ll have a new game mode called Sabotage.

Selecting this will bring up a server list of available games you can join and sabotage. When a saboteur joins, they will appear in the lower right-hand corner of the HUD. There will also be a five second cooldown after a page displays before the player can make a choice; this gives the saboteur time to “trap” one of the available options, making it blood red on their screen. The player, unaware of which choice is trapped, will pick one as normal but if it is the same as the saboteur then they will die automatically. Picking a choice that isn’t trapped will count against the saboteur and after ten successes it will banish the saboteur from the game.

All of this can be turned off in the Options sub-menu, of course.

We will be putting the new version of the game into a beta branch in the next few weeks to let you guys try it out before full release. We will make another post once we get the beta branch up and have a firm date on when the update will be ready.

Stay tuned!, 22 Sep 2019 18:03:02

One Way To Die: Redux Nearing Release

Hey folks! Since the redux version of One Way To Die is entering the testing phase, we figured it was a good time to talk a bit more about it.

What’s New
All of the graphics are getting updated along with splash screens; an attempt to match the art styles with our newer stuff. The player character, Jenkins, will also be featured more visibly. Some animations have been added to break up the monotony as well. And there will be some new music.

There is a new story mode which will restructure how the game flows. There will be somewhat more paths to take, with possible ends at the usual array of deaths. The writing will also get a punch up. Once story mode is beaten, it will unlock the older choose mode and, of course, when that is beaten you can play random mode. Oh, and there is a new achievement for beating all three.

Statistics and leaderboards have been expanded. Some additional content has been added to the deluxe edition as well, with more goodies being added after launch.

We’re updating the trading cards (which are still all janky), the wallpapers, emoticons, and related stuff. The trailers are also being redone.

Finally controller support might make it in before we update but might be added shortly after… depending.

When’s It Coming
It should be out at the end of August or beginning of September barring any weird issues we hit before then. If there is a delay we’ll probably write more about it. When there is a definite launch date, it’ll get posted.

See you then!

One Way To Die: Redux This Spring


We are wheeling out the redux version of our first Steam game, One Way To Die, this spring. Both the free regular version and deluxe edition will get updated; though the deluxe will end up with a few more extra features. Here is some of what we have going on:

  • New content like more deaths
  • Various re-writes and update to existing content
  • All-new graphics
  • New story mode
  • Re-worked random and choice modes
  • New leaderboard system
  • New sabotage system
  • And more!

Our hero, Jenkins, first seen in our newest game Into Oblivion, will be more visibly present in this version. New mechanics added to the story mode will make your choices actually mean something instead of being a crap shoot. And make achievement spamming a lot more tricky.

Stay tuned for more information as we get closer to the date, including more screenshots and such.
