  • Felix The Reaper

Felix works at The Ministry of Death, and he's in love with Betty The Maiden from The Ministry of Life. He believes that going to the human world as a field reaper will enable him to one day meet her, so he's taken the job of making sure people die—and taught himself to dance, in order to impress the love of his (un)life.

Since Felix only moves in the shadows, he needs to tread carefully through this strange world. Luckily, reapers like Felix are able to turn the sun and shift the shadows, creating the paths necessary to navigate the land of the living. He does so to solve puzzles and make sure people die according to ministerial plans.

Each level unlocks a hardcore version of itself for the motivated ministerial go-getter. You can also collect skull achievements that further unlock bonus time trials for the most resourceful employees.
 

  • Challenge yourself to original puzzle game mechanics

  • Collect skull achievements that unlock bonus time trials
  • Watch Felix develop his dance moves—as created by professional dancers!


Felix The Reaper sprang from a fascination with the sprawling, humorous and grotesque art history of Death. Many themes have emerged in the cultural identity of Death, including The Dance of Death or Danse Macabre and Death And The Maiden. We sort of mashed those two themes together in Felix The Reaper.

For the character himself and the world around him, the inspiration was more diverse: We took cues from the ancient TV show The Twilight Zone, medieval painters like Bruegel and Bosch and the cartoon characters of Adventure Time and Hayao Miyazaki.

Another important inspiration for Felix The Reaper was the amazing artistic collaborators in the production. We worked with dancers, a long list of music artists and history scholars.

 

 

The Dance

Several dancers contributed to the game's production, and eventually Gunilla Lind and Raphaël Ferdinand Eder-Kastling improvised the final moves that ended up in the game.

Here's Gunilla doing a dance move for Felix:

And here's Raphael doing another:

The Music

Of course a game with a dancing protagonist needs great music—why else would he be dancing? We designed the game in a way that lets the music artists be themselves. We wanted them to add to the game through their personal artistic expression, rather than ask them to be what we want them to be. This made for a varied and strange combination of music. But since the gameplay is a non-stressful puzzler, you actually have time to appreciate and enjoy the weirdness while playing.

The Art History

The idea for the game itself stems from art history. We actually started with The Danse Macabre and Death and The Maiden as a basis, and then asked ourselves: How can we make a game about this? Eventually and through several different prototypes, we ended up here.


Alongside the production, a history scholar was diving into the art history of Death across more than 10 centuries for a book manuscript he is working on, and every time he hit upon something interesting he told us, and we tried to put it into the game if it fit. There are five different articles by this historian Søren Hein Rasmussen within the game—you can unlock them as you progress.

Felix The Reaper is a puzzle game in which players alter events to end the lives of humans as ordered by the Ministry of Death.

Developer: Kong Orange Publisher: Daedalic Entertainment Release: October 17th On: Windows From: Steam Price: 21.99 / $24.99 / 24.99 Felix The Reaper is a master of distraction. Instead of making him rush to move shadows about so he can set up elaborately fatal traps, all I want to do is watch this chubby lil’ reaper bust endless moves to the beat of his Walkman. and I mean moves: it would be ridiculous to call these “idle animations”, because this groovin’ dealer of de...

Screenshot Saturday! A day to take a look at some games that don t yet exist, may become entirely different things at any moment, and yet still pique the interest for what they are right now. This week: one Halloween-y pooch, some extremely relaxing stargazing, and a semi-virtual dance off. (more…)
