Zero Deaths is a meme-filled post-apocalyptic action platforming adventure that follows PewDiePie as he makes a comeback from the Sub-Bot War of 2019.
Let’s Player fan games are nothing new, but Zero Deaths is actually a very good one and it even contains voice acting by PewDiePie himself. It was created by developer Thomas Brush (creator of Pinstripe) who dared PewDiePie to dare him to make a game in 14 days and aside from a few little bugs, it’s a great little action platforming adventure.
Zero Deaths takes place in a post-apocalyptic world that was thrown into disarray after PewDiePie was defeated by T-Series in 2019. It’s a dark and desolate world filled with dead memes, deadly bots and deranged nine-year olds. As you make your way through the world you’ll fight enemies, collect cash and earn new abilities. Collecting the cash isn’t optional – you’ll need to collect nearly all of it to make your way through the levels.
There are a few rough edges, but it’s a pretty ambitious project for two weeks of solo development. It’s got a very cool visual style, great audio design, challenging action platforming gameplay and lots of fun little surprises and in-jokes. It’s unlikely you’ll get through it with zero deaths though – it’s a pretty tough game (particularly the final battle!)
