Fiercely independent game developer, Those Awesome Guys, and go to market gurus Reverb Triple XP have launched today Move or Die onto the PlayStation®4 computer entertainment system. PlayStation gamers can now experience the fast-paced, sweat-inducing, multiplayer frenzy where game modes change every 30 seconds – you gotta MOVE or you will DIE!
With content from the critically-acclaimed PC version including characters from Rick & Morty and Shovel Knight, Move or Die boasts an extensive collection of over the top game modes, some of which feature mechanics from indie classics such as Superhot, Heavy Bullets, or VVVVVV. On top of that, the PS4 version will also be debuting exclusive content in an upcoming launch-day patch. This will include six new characters, four additional game modes, three zany Mutators, and introduces the voice talent of Youtube star ProZD as an official game announcer.
“We’ve had so much fun building Move or Die on PC and there have been a lot of community requests for a console version given its button mashing action and over the top characters,” said Nicolae Berbece, founder and lead developer for Those Awesome Guys. “Today’s launch is a very big deal for us, as three years’ worth of free updates and weird ideas have manifested as game modes and characters in this odd game I managed to put together with a team of great people from all around the world. It’s a kind of an awesome new beginning!”
Move or Die has a simple fundamental premise: players who fail to move their oddball characters will see their health bar drop very quickly and eventually die in colorful, splatty explosions. Players will battle each other in an ever-growing list of mini-game modes that change every 20-30 seconds. Outrageous level designs and rule sets promote hours of laughter.
