Shiny Shoe Launches Death's Door: Aftermath, A Mixer-Exclusive Streaming RPG
The 20 Million Strong Mixer Gaming Community and Dynamic Dungeon Master Hold the Power to Change the Game Direction One Vote at a Time
San Francisco, June 25, 2018 – Shiny Shoe, the indie game studio behind the live mobile game played at Madison Square Garden, who has contributed to hits from Double Fine, Stoic, and Telltale, today launched Death’s Door: Aftermath available exclusively on Mixer, Microsoft’s streaming platform. Mixer is a next-generation interactive livestreaming service that gives viewers the ability to watch and engage with their favorite games and streamers in near real-time or to easily stream their own experiences.
This pioneering social game offers RPG gamers, Dungeons & Dragons fans, and those looking to play or chat with friends a unique interactive experience. Join the Death’s Door: Aftermath community on Mixer starting today from 10 am - 10 pm Pacific on https://mixer.com/deathsdoorgame. Streaming Tuesday through Sunday during those hours, the game will continually evolve with each community vote and new content updates.
“We’re excited to greet the Death’s Door: Aftermath gamers on Mixer today who will determine how this new episodic experience will evolve,” said Mark Cooke, Shiny Shoe CEO. “Part choose your own RPG adventure and community gathering place, the dynamic Dungeon Master events are sure to shake up the gameplay in fun and sometimes controversial ways.”
Set in a post-apocalyptic wasteland, Death’s Door: Aftermath is the only live-streaming community-activated game of its kind where through a timed voting mechanic, players determine the path forward across the newly designed branching map. Each vote by the community such as: “flee or fight,” guides the Revenant through the adventure clouded by ancient evil from The Faceless One. Unexpected gameplay twists, snarky responses directed to players and more will happen when the live Dungeon Master (designated player/moderator) enters the stream. Mixer channel subscribers will benefit from special subscriber-only voting periods, custom emotes, and access to a subscriber-only Discord channel to chat with the development team directly.
“Shiny Shoe continues to pioneer interactive streaming on Mixer, leveraging some of the latest and greatest MixPlay features,” said Ben Favreau, Mixer product marketing manager. “We’re looking forward to Death’s Door: Aftermath,building off of the success of the first Death’s Door chapter, which surpassed over 1 million viewers on Mixer last year.”
Implementing valuable community feedback from the first game, Death’s Door: Aftermath offers new character customization options, a world map to explore, and a new gameplay experience each time the player signs on to the MixPlay stream. Fresh content, game events, and industry influencers taking on the role of the Dungeon Master will keep gamers coming back to restore their Revenant soul.
