We’ve all done the unspeakable and knocked down a few old fogeys during our GTA escapades, but now it’s time for the tables to turn as the old biddies get theirs in the old people mayhem sandbox game, Just Die Already.
Curve Digital and DoubleMoose have announced today that they’ll be bringing the bonkers Just Die Already to PS4, Xbox One, Nintendo Switch, and PC. There’s no release date given at this time but the trailer states that it’s coming “soon”.
What is Just Die Already?
If, like me, you’ve never heard of it, here’s a brief breakdown:
You play as an old person in the near future where the population growth has halted. No new babies are being born, which means old people’s pension pots are not being filled and the free handouts that old people normally enjoy have stopped. And, to top it all off, you’ve just been booted from your retirement home.
As an old person without a pension or a home, you’ll need to perform dangerous actus to qualify for free health care. It’s called gaming the system, and it looks ridiculously fun.
You can play solo if that’s your style, or you can go online and play with up three other players to compete for that sweet, sweet free healthcare. This is probably the future anyway, so it’s good training.
If there’s something familiar about the chaotic way in which Just Die Already plays, that’s because it’s from the same dude – Armin Ibrisagic – who brought us Goat Simulator. So yeah, expect that level of silly when Just Die Already releases.
