One of the most iconic death sound effects in gaming is Roblox’s “oof”, and has become a staple of the game. It’s pretty iconic, and is now internet slang for getting hurt, in trouble or reacting to someone in one of those scenarios.

The sound appeared at the end of Messiah, which was a 2000 indie video game. You can view the ending right here:
What does this mean? Well, as a death sound effect, the “oof” will be removed, but will still be available for purchase. As for its replacement, we have no idea what it will be, and we’ll have to wait and see.
