Rube Goldberg Death Traps Are The Best Death Traps

Rube Goldberg Death Traps are the Best Death Traps

Deception IV: Blood Ties is a game built around one concept: building elaborate, overly complicated death traps to violently dispose of the heroes sent against you. In the game, you have three kinds of death traps: movement traps — which do a small amount of damage but move the victim into another location, damage traps — which focus on doing tons of damage, and joke traps — which may be anything from a stepped-on rake to a banana peel.

While luring a helpless fool into a few of the damage traps one at a time is enough to kill said hero, it's not particularly satisfying — nor is it rewarding. To get the big EXP bonuses, you need to chain your death traps together in a near Rube Goldberg-style of complexity.

It's about as awesome (and over-the-top violent) as you would imagine. Check out the video above for an example.

Deception IV: Blood Ties was released in Japan for the PlayStation 3 and PlayStation Vita on 27 February 2014. It will be released on 25 March 2014 in the US, and 28 March 2014 in Australia and Europe.


    I don't know, looks really boring to me.

    Sounds a little like Trapt.
    Trapt was ok for a cheap game, those who don't know it:

    Am I the only one that sees the similarities for this and Trapt for PS2. I loved Trapt but holy shit this is a huge rip off of that game.

      Trapt and Deception are the same series

    Why have I NEVER heard of this series?

      The Deception series came out on PSX and IIRC most of the earlier games never made it here to AU.

      Only the PS2 game Trapt was released here.

      Glad to see the game's finally back :D

    I cant wait - i loved Deception, D2, Kagero & Trapt!!! woot!
