Stay Dead is the brucefilm's effort to build something fun around a simple and not yet really explored idea: to interact in real time in a movie.
Here what is NOT Stay Dead: It is not about graphic adventures, laser games or interactive movie.
Stay Dead is a REAL ARCADE-ACTION GAME, something that (probably) it was never done before.
Playing Stay Dead is like watching the movie ‘Indiana Jones’ and being able to command Indiana inside one of his action scene IN REAL TIME, just like if he was a videogame character. Actually it is more like command 'Chuck Norris' or 'Bruce Lee' in one of their action movie, because BRUCEfilm tried to capture that kind of feeling (starting from the strange and colorful foes), but the concept is the same.
In the end STAY DEAD is a fusion of a 'round beat'em up' game like Street Fighter with a lot of elements taken from rhythm games.
