Causing fatal accidents for the grim reaper? There’s an app for that.
Death Coming opens with a joyful scenario: your death. Now that you have a gig as Death’s assistant, it’s up to you to collect souls by any means necessary. In each level, you’ll need to use various items to cause accidents rather than direct action. The possibilities for Final Destination-esque mayhem are numerous thanks to the variety in both objects and silly deaths. With open-ended design, cute pixel art and wacky humor, players will solve puzzles unseen on smartphones.
This comes after Death Coming’s nomination for the 2018 SXSW Gamer’s Voice Award: an award dedicated to indie titles with grassroots origins and lower budgets. Current winners of the award include SUPERHOT, Gang Beasts, and Owlboy. The official winner will be announced on March 17.
The puzzle game was originally released on Steam in November last year and is currently rated very positively. You’ll progress through the puzzles in a non-linear fashion which allows for a unique playthrough. You’ll also need to manipulate the environment that is rendered in a pixel art style.
Death Coming is available from today on iOS. If you’d rather play on PC you can download Death Coming on Steam for £4.99 / €6.99 / $6.99.
