For Immediate Release
Indie developer Next Studio have announced their debut title Death Coming: a game in which players take on the role of a reaper of souls after their own untimely death. In Final Destination-style gameplay, Reapers must get creative and use the environment at the right time to cause death and destruction.
Death Coming is a pixel art non-linear puzzle game where each level has multiple way to progress. Targets can be killed in a variety of ways, and you can use a single object to reap multiple souls if you plan and time your 'execution' just right.
In Death Coming, the world is filled with NPC's that will go about their daily lives and react to events around them. Should you cause a car accident and miss your target, the NPC will alter their behavior and change their routine.
Observation will be key in Death Coming to effectively plan your elaborate ways of reaping. Observe the daily routines of your target and execute with precision.While on the prowl as a reaper, the minions of heaven will be actively working against your evil machinations. Angels will patrol, levels looking to protect the living, so you must strike when angel patrols aren't looking to avoid divine intervention.
Death Coming will be heading to Steam Early Access in September 2017. The game was recently shown at this year's PAX West in Seattle where Kotaku named it "one of the five coolest indie games of PAX".
