March update: GDC 2018, adding Achievements, and more!

Laundry Bear Games has a lot of stuff going on this month, so here's a digest of some of the cool things we're up to this March!

We're heading to GDC 2018!

Laundry Bear Games' Andrew Carvalho and Gabby DaRienzo, as well as the rest of the Mortician's Tale team will be at the Game Developer's Conference in San Francisco this week! A few of our teammates are giving talks, so if you're heading to the conference be sure to check them out:

We're nominated for an IGF Award!

Our game A Mortician’s Tale is also a finalist in this year’s Independent Games Festival Awards at this year's GDC! We’re super honoured to be nominated for the Nuovo Award alongside so many other amazing games, and to be named as an honourable mention for the Excellence in Narrative Award!

The IGF Awards Ceremony takes place on Wednesday, March 21st! Wish us luck! 

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!

If you enjoyed A Mortician's Tale, please consider leaving us a review! It helps other players decide if it's a game they'd like to play, plus we'd really appreciate it! 


Thank you so much for your support, and have a wonderful March!

Happy Holidays and thanks for an incredible year!

2017 was an amazing year for us! We released our debut game A Mortician's Tale in October, and have been so overwhelmed with the massive critical praise it's received. On top of releasing our own game, we also had the pleasure of working on some of our friends' games this year too. Gabby made artwork for Graceful Explosion Machine, as well as the upcoming games Celeste and Parkitect, and Andrew did some development work on Blasters of the Universe VR as well as taught game design at Sheridan College.

We want to say thank you to everyone who has supported us over this past year — it means a lot! 💜

Some Recent Highlights:

We're so honoured to be on these lists alongside so many other amazing games and studios!

In 2018 we'll have more Mortician's Tale news and updates to look forward to! We've also been prototyping a ✨ brand new game ✨ which we're excited to continue developing into 2018 (it's a secret for now, but we're excited to share more about this project when it's ready!).

Thanks for an amazing 2017, and here's to an even better 2018!

Lots of love,
Your pals at Laundry Bear Games.
