A Mortician's Tale News and Reviews!
Since A Mortician's Tale's launch a few weeks ago, we've been overwhelmed with the positive response we've received from players and press! Sincerely, thank you so much for playing our little death game — it means the world to us that people like it! We're currently in talks to bring the game to additional platforms and possibly localize it for other languages — we'll have more to announce within the next couple of months!
Here's what people are saying about A Mortician's Tale:
"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
"8/10 — [A Mortician’s Tale] is a short game, only an hour or so long, but it leaves an impact far beyond its runtime. Give it a chance, and it might just change the way you think about death." — Destructoid
"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
