Splat-tacular New Video Trailer Showcases 101 Ways to Die
Gory, dark and hilarious physics-based puzzler headed to consoles and PC from March 22nd
Mad scientist, inventor and weapons manufacturer of questionable sanity, Dr Splatunfuder, has just finished cutting together a brand new trailer for upcoming physics-based puzzler, 101 Ways to Die – which you can handily watch right now…
Developed by independent UK studio, Four Door Lemon, 101 Ways to Die seamlessly combines strategic and timing-based gameplay with a hilariously twisted concept.
Dr Splatunfuder has dedicated his life’s work to a twisted “recipe book” focused on the death of his enemies. However, an unfortunate laboratory accident resulted in the destruction of the first draft. As the ethically challenged assistant of Dr Splatunfuder, players must assist him piecing the fragments back together; page by page; chapter by chapter; kill by kill as they progress through a fiendishly clever array of game puzzles.
By utilising a variety of madcap and deadly implements, players must trap and punish lab-created creatures known as Splatts – before ripping them apart in the most stylish and imaginative ways possible. And whatever you do, don’t let them escape.
Players will be able to get their (soon-to-bloody) hands on the game in March, when it hits Steam on the 22nd, PlayStation® 4 on the 23rd and Xbox One on 24th.
About The Game
101 Ways To Die is the latest game from UK indie games developers, Four Door Lemon, due to be released on PC, Xbox One and Playstation 4 in 2015.
101 Ways To Die is a physics-based puzzler with a twist – it’s full of dark humour and gore.
In 101 Ways To Die, you play as the assistant to Professor Ernst Splattunfuder, an often ridiculed and ignored member of the scientific community approaching his twilight years, who has been busy with secret research that would affirm his scientific prowess. This legacy was a book called ‘101 Ways To Die’.
Unfortunately, having just completed the book, both the Professor and his life’s work were caught up in a terrible accident. The book was left in tatters… only pieces of the puzzle remained intact on each page.
Unable to rebuild his work alone he has hired you; a lab assistant with very loose morals. Your task – to provide the missing pieces of data that will rebuild his once great tome, page by page, chapter by chapter; each new entry re-telling the elaborate ways to hurt, maim, and exterminate, in the hope of reproducing ‘101 Ways To Die’ – It’s not just about killing… it’s about killing with style!
•Manipulate the environment to kill the Splatts
•Create mutilation, mayhem and destruction by laying
brutal combinations of tools
•A series of bone crunching animations showing your
creatures being maimed, sliced, burned, exploded,
ripped and impaled
•101 delightfully gory death Recipes to unlock

Gain points for killing lab created creatures – the Splatts – by using the arsenal of lethal tools. Gain more points for killing them with hilarious Recipe kills; combining multiple deadly tools to achieve the most outlandishly cruel deaths possible for the hapless Splatts. Do you have what it takes to restore the book with all 101 Recipes?
Our gameplay revolves around using tools and physics to trap and punish the Splatts before ripping them apart. It combines strategy, reactions and a twisted mind-set to make the most deadly combinations. The reward? Finishing a level and completing challenges is one side, sitting back and watching as the characters are grotesquely eviscerated is another. The post round replay system means you never miss your bloodiest efforts.
