a very cute and informative game about the mortician process. the cover art is also beautiful.

I love this game, I watch a lot of Ask a Mortician (who I was not surprised to see in the credits) and this does a wonderful job helping you understand what they might have to go through.

You can use this in your curriculum to get a mortician job

Cortito, entretenido y "algo" reflexivo - en su momento no me hizo meditar mucho, la verdad. Quizá le vuelva a dar un tiento en otro momento.

Dear Future Me,
you really enjoyed this game because it made you think about death in a compassionate and respectful manner. In fact it made you tear up a little thinking about all the times you or someone you know could have died. Especially that scene with the car accident.
Fuck cars. All motorists are terrorists.
Anyway go discover some more death positive media, its good.
Kind regards,
xoxo etc

people complaining about this being slow and repetitive missed the point of what this should be, it's narrative driven so most of the "game" is getting the story through context by reading the emails
anyways this was really good i really loved it, death is a really sensitive topic and the game managed to pull some strong emotions from me somewhere 3/4 into the story
