Morgan is a writer, gamer, photographer, and heavy metal enthusiast. Her passion for gaming encompasses both AAA and indie, with a heavy focus on the latter. As AllGamers' resident indie expert, you can expect her to wax poetic about all the latest and greatest indie titles whenever the opportunity arises.
Morgan's typical day includes an indie gaming marathon and several large cups of coffee. Even on the weekend, you can often find her perched in front of the computer browsing through Steam's new releases. Her current platform of choice is PC, but having grown up with Nintendo, she also has a soft spot for the Switch (especially thanks to its ever-expanding catalogue of indies).
Let it Die is quickly becoming one of the most popular free-to-play indies on the PlayStation Store.
Let it Die released to the PlayStation Store on December 3rd as a free-to-play indie game with unobtrusive microtransactions. As of yesterday, January 4th, publisher GungHo Entertainment revealed that the game has already surpassed the 1 million download mark. In celebration, GungHo is giving players who log in between January 6th through January 8th bonus Death Metals.
Death Metal is a form of in-game currency capable of resurrecting your Fighter should they die in battle. While there are other ways to resurrect your Fighter in-game, such as returning to the floor where they died and taking them out (thus returning them to your Fighter Freezer), or simply paying Kill Coins to recover their body. However, Death Metal is the quickest way to revive your fallen Fighter and is critically important during boss battles.
The handling of microtransactions in Let it Die is superb, as you never end up feeling like you have to continuously lay down money to continue playing. Because of this, and more, it’s not hard to see why Let it Die has surpassed the 1 million download mark so quickly. Here’s to hoping the game sees continued success throughout the 2017 calendar year.
