We've added Achievements to A Mortician's Tale!
We’ve ALSO updated the game with Achievements on Steam. We originally didn’t include any as we didn’t feel it was appropriate given the context of the game, HOWEVER we’ve heard your feedback and know that so many of you enjoy collecting achievements, so we've decided to add 3 achievements to the game:
“Rest in Peace” — Finish A Mortician's Tale
“Crypt Sweeper Keeper” — Win a game of Tales from the Crypt Sweeper
“Chatty Charlie” — Talk to every person at every funeral
Thank you! We hope you have a great month!
