Life & Death

The Mortuary Assistant is a horror-themed adventure game enriched with simulation elements. The title was produced by DarkStone Digital studio. Most of the project was independently developed by Brian Clarke, who was previously employed by such companies as Trion Worlds, Electronic Arts and Disney Interactive.


The player takes on the role of an employee of River Fields Funeral Home. One night he receives an urgent call to work to embalm several corpses. After arriving at the place and starting the order, it quickly turns out that these bodies are different from all previous ones, and demonic forces are involved in the matter of their deaths. To make matters worse, these beings are not done with them yet. What they don't know, however, is that our protagonist is no ordinary embalmer either, and has knowledge and skills that give him a chance to prevail in the clash with the supernatural beasts.


In The Mortuary Assistant, events are observed from a first-person perspective. The game reproduces in a quite realistic way the activities used to prepare bodies for funerals, and all of them have to be performed manually, as in simulators.

In parallel, the player must also perform occult rituals that stop demons from killing the protagonist. Along the way, he also collects plot clues and solves logic puzzles. From time to time there are also simple arcade sequences, mainly revolving around hiding from and escaping from unclean forces.

The game is largely non-linear. It is designed so that each playthrough of the campaign contains unique challenges and provides new plot threads. Demonic attacks and the bodies given to us for embalming also change.
