A downloadable game for Windows

(CW: Death, decay, terminal illness)
Created by ME (Morgan Meehan-Lam)

The game about death that's actually about dying.

You're the new caretaker for a small community of the recently departed. Your job is to comfort and keep company the temporary residents of your haven before they move on.

(Roll with me here. This is more like a quicky tutorial for that idea.)

Prototype made in 3 weeks for an RMIT final year assignment.

Experimenting with 2.5D here. A lot of visual inspiration drawn from Hobart, Tasmania.
