DeathRun TV just received its world premiere at the Future Games Show powered by WD_Black.
DeathRun TV is a top-down roguelike set in a dystopian future where you’ll have to fight your way through a TV glove to survive. Unfortunately, in a world where death means nothing and your social media presence is paramount, the spectating audience is on the hunt for blood, and you will have to impress them with your antics in the arena if you hope to win them. .
The gameplay trailer revealed in today’s showcase is particularly reminiscent of the classic roguelike Nuclear Throne, but DeathRun TV somehow manages to put even more pomp into the proceedings. As you progress through maze-like levels, battle monsters, and dodge elaborate traps, you will also have to face the trials and tribulations of reality TV. Fortunately, the upgrades you gain over time should make this a bit easier, offering new weapons, increased movement speed, or more of DeathRun TV’s most important currency – social media engagement.
