'A Mortician's Tale' Has Something to Say About Death

quote [ Indie developer Laundry Bear on being inspired by the 'Death Positive' movement and using a game to teach us about accepting the inevitable

A Mortician's Tale is trying to go there, by mixing a serious subject (dealing with dead bodies) with a crazy, cute art style and satisfying game mechanics. When I played the game at the Day of Devs indie games event last year, I shaved a corpse, pumped him full of embalming fluid, and later met his family. ]

A little hard for me to see fun here, but what do I know?

Steam says Available: Spring 2017, which is almost upon us.

Seems like a nice concept I guess, but when it comes to dealing with and accepting death and the true existential questions, the disposition of corporeal remains, while certainly interesting, doesn't really seem relevant.
