A Mortician's Tale is an informative, honest, and sometimes humorous look at the current state of and the future of the western death industry.


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

One Of Polygon's Best Games of 2017 — "The video game industry is built on the destruction of bodies of all kinds. How refreshing to play a game that asks you to care for them, even after their life has left."

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."
