PlaySide Studios are happy to announce that the game behind the viral TikTok sound is releasing its next instalment, Dumb Ways to Die 4.
Dumb Ways to Die is back with a bang, and it has taken over TikTok as the hottest trend in 2023. The original Dumb Ways to Die game topped the iOS game charts in more than 22 countries worldwide. Now, PlaySide Studios are taking full advantage of the success to release the next game in the series. However, Dumb Ways to Die didn’t begin as a successful mobile game.
The Most Successful Public Service Announcement
Dumb Ways to Die is the most shared PSA ever. It was made by Metro Trains Melbourne in November 2012 to teach people about rail safety. The original video became a hit on YouTube and social media, and the song from the video was a top 10 hit on iTunes, selling 100,000 copies. The YouTube channel now has more than 325 million views.
The success of the marketing campaign led to the release of the first game, which has over 190 million downloads. The second game app, Dumb Ways to Die 2: The Games, came out in November 2014. It was the number one app in 83 countries, with over 130 million downloads from all over the world.
After the first two games, PlaySide Studios have continued to expand the Day Ways to Die brand, releasing multiple games, and even expanding its games past train safety to design educational games for children. Now, with the next chapter on the way, Dumb Ways to Die 4 is pledging to remind people to be safe in a fun way.
What is Dumb Ways to Die 4?
Dumb Ways to Die 4 is introducing a new world of fun, chaos and minigames for the original fans and new players on modern mobile devices. There will be over 60 minigames to play in various places and settings.
