You are an old retired person in a near future where people aren't having any children. There isn't anyone to pay for pensions due to those ungrateful millennials who prefer playing video games instead of doing actual work. With no one to cover your living costs, you - just like all other old people in this world - have no other choice but to survive on your own. How will you survive in a world that wants you to Just Die Already?...


Just Die Already is an old people mayhem sandbox game

Just Die Already is an old people mayhem sandbox game created by the designers of Goat Simulator.

Very much like Goat Simulator, Just Die Already is a game that's fun for about... 30 mins, and then it starts to get dull really quick... or it's going to be the best game you've ever played and you'll spend many a happy hour running around causing mayhem and destruction... all the while laughing so much it hurts. Unfortunately I was of the former opinion.

You start the game being kicked out of your retirement home, and your only option now is to perform dangerous challenges and explore the world for retirement tickets to qualify for free retirement care.


Play alone, or with up to 4 players in online multiplayer

The game's sandbox multiplayer allows you to play alone, or with up to 4 players in online multiplayer. Complete challenges together, or just cause mayhem and rip your friends’ limbs off. The game allows you to pick up and interact with a wide variety of objects. Everything from giant trouts, trampolines, guns, electrical wiring, and fireworks, bazookas, axes, trombones, air horns and jetpacks to mention a few.

Running around the environment you'll find countless ways to despatch other gamers or AI characters minding their own business. When you die, and you will many, many times, you respawn in the nearest dumpster ready to cause more mayhem.

Discovering new weapons, new ways to kill yourself and new environments will keep you respawning. And when you find a hidden treasure actually getting to it is never an easy task. You can be killed in so many ways, most of them truly gruesome... and it takes quite a bit to actually kill your character. You can still roll around as just a body with no arms, legs or head...


The game allows you to wield anything as a weapon

There's also, if you can find it, a glue gun that lets you attach anything to anything else. So you can, for example, attach fireworks to a bike, and then ride the bike. Or you can attach wings to your arm and fly around. The possibilities are endless...

It's cheap, it's stupid and fun in a very odd way. You'll either love it or really not get it at all.
