A new game from developer Four Door Lemon Vision called 101 Ways To Die will be coming to the PS4 soon, sometime in March. The game was recently announced over on the official PlayStation blog by Vision Games' Simon Barratt. The announcement was accompanied by a debut teaser trailer.

The PlayStation blog details some of the gameplay mechanics as well as the story behind the title. You can check out the teaser trailer below.



So the story is that a mad scientist had a book called “101 Ways To Die”. It was going to be his magnum opus. However, a lab accident occurred and his grand book was destroyed. The book detailed ways of exercising mutilation and destruction against others, and players take on the role of a lab assistant who must recreate 101 ways to die in order for the Professor to finish his book and cement his legacy as a brilliant, scientific mind.

The contraptions and deadly devices will be constructed across 50 different levels. The levels are pre-constructed with some devices and traps already present, it will be up to players to use their afforded accessories and tools to devise even deadlier traps to kill the lab-created mutants known as Splatts.

101 Ways To Die seems reminiscent of games like The Incredible Machine or Deception. The big difference is that unlike The Incredible Machine, players will use their wits to kill, maim, and destroy. In fact, this game is even more devious than Deception, given that the most that happened in that game was that the characters were tortured, humiliated, stripped of their clothing and beaten down. They certainly weren't ripped to shreds or involved in complex machinery that seem like they came out of a Mortal Kombat stage.

In a way, 101 Ways To Die is very reminiscent of Robot Entertainment's Orcs Must Die. In fact, many of the traps seem quite reminiscent of the tower defense title where players must kill and destroy as many Orcs as possible in each round.

The upcoming strategy title for the PS4 is due for release in March. Gamers with a bit of a sadistic side will be able to construct some ridiculously over-the-top tools to bring pain and suffering to the Splatts, including making various bumpers bounce a Splatt around before tossing them into a lava pit, or setting down slime and having them slip and slide into a grinder. There's the ability to set them on fire, catapult them into a ceiling filled with spikes, or even ricochet them off the wall into a group of spinning blades. The creativity and possibilities are endless.

The game is definitely designed for an older crowd, but the impact of the gore and violence is lessened thanks to the over-the-top, caricatured violence. They don't roll out a price in the piece on how much this new PS4 title will cost, but some commenters are already asking for 101 Ways To Die on the PS Vita.
