Pippin Games and Top Hat Studios announced that Kawaii Deathu Desu is currently available right now over on the Steam store. You can pick up a digital copy of the game right now for just $3.99. The game is also discounted during the first week of release at 10% off the normal purchasing price.
The game centers around supernatural spirits who take the form of cute waifus, fighting against crazed fans looking to worship them, but there’s a twist: the supernatural waifus want to prove who is the most popular in the underworld by collecting the souls of their most rabid fans. Whoever has the most souls wins. You’ll have to select your spirit waifu and then go to work on hordes of fans as they attack you from all sides.
The game has a very simple design, where you stand in the middle and fight off the hordes of enemies that come from all sides. It’s pretty much like One Finger Death Punch, but with waifus and an anime art-style.
The game is only played with two buttons, where you use basic attacks and specials to dispense of enemies. Each waifu supernatural idol has a special ability you can use, as well as unique costumes you can unlock for each character after collecting enough souls.
The developers also have plans on updating the game with new playable idols, new skins, additional outfits and stages based on community feedback.
At the moment the game has a mixed user review rating because some claim that there isn’t enough skill involved and that the combat is just simple-minded button mashing. Maybe with a few updates and some tweaks to the controls and combat Pippin Games can upgrade the combat to be a little more skill-based?
Anyway, Kawaii Deathu Desu is available right now and if it tickles your fancy you can grab a copy over on the Steam store.
