Death Coming is now available for purchase on Steam – Early Access – developed by NEXT Studio. This game looks quite interesting and maybe a little morbid. Also, the pixel look it has to it is pretty cool.
Death Coming is about a character you get to play as who passed away and is appointed the job as the Grim Reaper. However, you cannot just go around killing people; you have to make sure you do it without an angel catching it. Angels are there to keep the order of the world and they will penalize you if you get caught. You have to know your environment, know the schedules of your targets, then take out your target all without getting caught by the angels, of course.
Some answers you may find out about:
- Will there be a second chance at life if you play along?
- Why were you chosen?
- Why are angels preventing you from fulfilling your tasks?

What the Critics are saying:
The contrast between what you’re actually doing and the visuals work to Death Coming’s advantage. The music is also a major contributor here. It makes it a light-hearted little puzzle game with a morbid theme and it just works.
Excellent pixel art with a really cool concept.

One of the coolest indie games at PAX.
Death Coming is a fun game, unlike anything else I’ve ever played.

It’s a Final Destination game, but instead of horror you have humor. It’s great!
This is a humorous game and quite unique. It is available on Early Access for $6.99. Check out the trailer for yourself:
