A Mortician's Tale

A Mortician's Tale is a narrative-driven death positive video game where you play as a mortician tasked with running a funeral home. Take on the role of recent funeral direction graduate Charlie as she learns the ropes of the business and industry. Prepare the cadavers of the deceased (via embalming or cremation), attend their funerals and listen to their loved ones' stories, and interact with Charlie's coworkers, clients, and bosses.

A Mortician's Tale is is greatly inspired by Caitlin Doughty and The Order of the Good Death, and is an informative, honest, and sometimes humorous look at the current state of and the future of the western death industry.


"One Of 2017's Best Games... It elicits dark feelings, but asks players to consider where those feelings came from and what makes them dark."

— Kotaku

"82/100 — An approachable and thought-provoking meditation on life’s only certainty."

— PC Gamer

"Recommended — This is a beautiful game. It scared me. It moved me. Most of all, it made me stop what I was doing and think."

— Eurogamer

"In its debut PC game A Mortician’s Tale, death is not only natural, but something worth utmost respect. It’s an inevitability that deserves as much care as life does."

— Polygon

"A Mortician’s Tale is a game that lets you go behind the curtain of funerals, to step into the shoes of the people for whom this is just an everyday job like any other. Your grief is their bread and butter; your special, one-off occasion, lovingly planned and arranged, is their package deal."
