Stop Dead Release Date

Developer Gridsnap Games and publisher Rogue Games have announced the release date for their upcoming frenetic first-person telekinetic brawler Stop Dead. Stop Dead is slated for release on PC via Steam and Epic Games Store on October 5, 2023. Stop Dead combines humor and intense action together to deliver a comic-book-inspired cityscape where catching a break will bring only death to you. Check out the latest trailer for Stop Dead below before we jump into additional details:

In Stop Dead, you will be able to use superhuman abilities to pick up over 160 unique throwable objects like guns, chainsaws, and the bloodied corpses of your enemies. The gameplay also incorporates leaping, sliding and other cool parkour moves for easy traversal on more than 40 levels and four biomes to achieve S ranks. Mike Moore, Creative Overlord at Gridsnap Games comments:

When we started working on Stop Dead, we didn’t have much other than throwing ragdolls, lots of blood, and chaos. When Rogue asked us to just ‘keep doing that,’ we knew we found the right partner. Rogue has given us nothing but great ideas and support throughout the development of Stop Dead and has helped us turn it into the best game it can be.

Rogue CEO Matt Casamassina also adds:

If you think you’ve played everything the FPS genre has to offer, I believe a few minutes with Stop Dead will prove otherwise in glorious fashion. The extremely talented team at Gridsnap has created an innovative new take on the genre that is as much about movement and flow as it is successfully traversing expansive worlds and using wild physics to thwart enemies and stay alive.

Lucky for you, you do not have to wait too long to experience the fast-paced gameplay of Stop Dead because the new Future Games Show demo is now live on Steam. This particular demo will give you a never-before-seen level and Twitch integration as well. The Future Games Show x Stop Dead competition will run at the same time and award two players with the highest score and fastest run in the demo will be able to win brand-new Xbox Series X and PS5 consoles. This competition and demo will run only for a week.

The Twitch integration will allow content creators to run custom commands that will let stream viewers apply effects onto the streamer and spawn items and enemies into the game. Streamers can also unleash their ghosts to race against other players and prove they moved faster. Viewers can also power up in-game enemies and have their chat messages appear above enemy heads as streamers are playing the game. Full HD customization allows streamers to optimize UI placement and an accessibility mode.
