She Wants Me Dead Out Today on PS4

Hello there! It feels awesome to be on PlayStation.Blog with some great news!

This time we want to tell you about She Wants Me Dead on PS4 — an unforgiving rhythm game with an evil cat that really, really wants to kill you. On the beat. To a dance song that will probobly dominate the clubs all summer long.

She Wants Me Dead, PS4

Long story short: super-house-producing-duo Cazzette (Sleepless, Blind Heart) came up with this crazy song called She Wants Me Dead. They brought in viral sensation AronChupa to feature on it and twist it even further.

The result was amazing and it instantly inspired us to make a game.

She Wants Me Dead is dark and quirky fun at the same time. It blends deadly traps with the feeling of both strategic and flowy platform puzzles. You play as Max, the owner of the cat Lula, who’s created a bunch of unmerciful gauntlets for him. The traps move in rhythm to the music and you better get your groove on to be able to bring Max to safety.

We immediately decided to avoid the procedural feeling of endless runners and put a lot of work into thoughtful level design. This makes the game perfect for expert players looking for an amazing speed run challenge. Adding rhythm-synced visuals and level assets was also important to enhance the connection to the song. On top of that, we created an extensive wardrobe, packed with pop cultural references for players to unlock and use to personalize their Max-avatar.

One crucial part was merging the gameplay with the actual song that inspired us from the start. How to use one single song for an entire game, without wearing it out?

We tried a lot of designs — build-ups with layers of the track, scripted queues, and more. Finally we decided on a straightforward solution and after having replayed the game and its soundtrack track a ridiculous amount of times, we’ve still not stopped loving the song.

Hopefully, you will like She Wants Me Dead just as much!

  • Looks fun. I wish I could buy it. I’m getting an Unable to purchase message when I try to buy things though.

  • I was able to listen to the song and see some gameplay on youtube. Looks like a lot of fun and I can vouch for the song being very catchy. I’m sure you’ll hear this a lot but this would be excellent on the Vita.

  • Ooh, looks really neat! Any plans for a Vita version?

  • I’d buy this on Vita too

  • I would buy a PS Vita version.

  • By the pics game looks good and by what I’ve read here too but gameplay is essential,should’ve posted a video along with this post.Guess I’ll have to search for it on YT but anyway looking forward to the game…looks very nice and add 1 more voice to the Vita version.

  • Yeahhhhh this isn’t actually PS4 exclusive. Not fooling me again

    Just like many other indies ‘PS4 exclusive’ at reveal then later ported to other platforms lol.

    This is timed exclusive for sure

    • Does it matter though? I mean, unless you’re waiting for this to come out on a different platform and getting the other version, if you’re interested in the game and willing to pay for it, why not?

    • Don’t think it claims to be an exclusive..
      It’s available on steam now

    • + joyrul96 It says nothing about exclusivity. You’re the same type that makes wild assumptions on rumors. I wish today’s youth could read.

    • No, it’s not a PS4 exclusive.

  • I would buy this game on Vita. Looks like a really fun game.

  • It doesn’t claim to be PS4 exculsive. Looks like a fun game. The last rhythm game I played was Parappa. You gotta believe! Did anyone see the Parappa spoof on Robot Chicken years ago? Funny! They may have did 2 Parappa skits.
