An approachable and thought-provoking meditation on life's only certainty.

Death gets its moment in a clear-eyed and uplifting game about the funeral business.

Death shouldn't be something we don't talk about and the death business isn't something that should exist in the shadows. A Mortician's Tale provides an excellent way to join that conversation while shedding some light on a mysterious business that would prefer to stay cloaked in darkness. It's 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.
