Death Corp makes you an intern at the Grim Reaper's company

By - | Views: 20,389

Getting a job is tough but college graduate Art was lucky enough to catch the eye of the Grim Reaper. Hold on, does the Grim Reaper even have eyes? Currently in development with a full release planned early next year, some might recognise the artwork from Justin Wack and the Big Time Hack, with the animator on it now pursuing their own game with Death Corp.

More about it from the dev: "Let's start with an intern position...You play as Art, a young college graduate looking for his first serious job. After a series of unsuccessful interviews, the Grim Reaper itself materializes in front of Art's eyes and, impressed by the young man's skills, offers him a job as an intern at his own company, Death Corp.

Meet tons of ridiculous characters, harvest the souls of those who recently passed away and, sometimes, push forward fate by solving outrageous and hilarious puzzles. Dark humor painted in bright colors scenes divided in independent chapters with constant references to films, books and classic point and click games."

The game also has a demo on Itch.io.

Looks fun but my enthusiasm to back projects up on crowdfunding platforms has long gone. I'll rather wait for the release of the full game.

Sounds like the plot might take a little bit of inspiration from the Discworld book Mort. Not a bad idea at all, so on the wishlist it goes!

I'm still at 100% success rate with funding only games that have a Linux demo or a Linux predecessor.
