About The Game

When we set out to create Life is Pain, we were looking to create a party game that was actually a game. and not just "who drew the funniest card?" A certain card game that shall not be named (hint: it rhymes with Shmards Against Shmumanity) has created an incredible experience and brand, to the point where people of all ages and lifestyles know the name. However, due to its success, party games have all adopted the "which of these things is funny" style of gameplay.

We wanted a game that would still be a game even if you removed the humor. Would people still enjoy the game mechanics of "insert game here" if the repetitive jokes were removed?

Life is Pain is a game that brings humor, fun gameplay, and above all, plenty of replay value. Life is Pain is unique because there truly are no winners of the game. Instead, each round results in a loser.
