A Mortician's Tale takes about 1 hour to play. It's a short, but deeply meaningful experience.

A Mortician's Tale is a story-driven death positive video game where you play as a mortician tasked with running a funeral home. Take on the role of recent funeral direction graduate Charlie as she learns the ropes of the business and industry.

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.

Original soundtrack by Halina Heron included.

Fantastic Arcade is a convention that began as part of a film festival and is now its own thing, though it still has the advantage of being held in a rad-looking cinema—the Alamo Drafthouse in Austin, Texas. Like the film festival, Fantastic Arcade is focused on cult and independent art, so every year a selection of indie developers get up and talk about their games. This year's talks were uploaded to YouTube two weeks ago and since then I've spent some enjoyable hours dipping i...
