'Death Coming' is a non-linear puzzle game where you take on the role of the Reaper. Your sole objective? Cause deaths and harvest souls while abiding by the Free Will Clause.

You Died.

Pure and simple, but death was not the end. You have become an agent of Death: a Reaper. You have the powers of Death, but there are rules in this supernatural afterlife.

The Reaper ends lives, but it cannot control humans directly due to the Free Will Clause. As the Reaper, you must plan and execute your killings by using the environment to your advantage. In the meantime, be wary of Minions of Light, who will try to save humans from their grim fate!

7.3 / 10.0

WIth its cute graphics and its original approach, Death is coming has the potential to become an instant classic. Ironically, its short life makes the game way too little, as far as some mistakes such as impossibility to replay some puzzles, are a heavy burden that make the game stay in the middle of nowhere.

This could have been the Hidden Folks of murdering. And it's all there, underneath the mess, waiting for someone to rescue. Sadly that has, so far, not been realised.

A great puzzler with a sinister twist. Embrace its strangeness.

While the value proposition across both platforms is similar, it's worth noting the first level is free on mobile. Maybe try it out there and if you're still curious, hop over to Switch and play it handheld. It's not worth trying any other way and it might be worth playing for the wanton death and puzzles.
