Thanks to the generosity of Paddy K , I had the opportunity to play Postmortem: Extended Scythe Cut , where you play an Agent of Death in and must reap one person attending a ritzy party in 1897 in a city torn by political strife. Your choice will impact various aspects of life in Galacia, so choose wisely. Explore your surroundings to learn about the various factions and engage in conversation to find out each character’s personal philosophy.
Or don’t. You’re Death, what do you care?
One of my favourite parts is the post-reap conversation with the character you kill. The character asks why you chose them and other questions about the afterlife and, as Death, you choose how you’d like to answer. After reaping one particularly loathsome character I went with telling them they were going to hell, which was very satisfying.
Overall, the game was rather short, but it has replayability and with a choose-your-own-adventure feel to it it’s very much a game for readers.. The conversations can be quite involved and you can choose to agree or disagree or be indifferent to each character’s role in the goings-on of the city.
