Before The Devil Knows You're Dead is a single-player, real-time adventure game currently in development for PC.
Inspired by the old Irish saying “May you get to heaven thirty minutes before the Devil knows you're dead”, the game will take you on a personal journey into the afterlife to answer the age old question - where do we go after we die?
Take control of Albert Devlin, a recently deceased Victorian gentleman, as he leaves his life and former home behind to go on a journey into the great beyond. But after years of isolation, living alone in the great mansion inherited from his long lost parents, that won't be easy. Difficult memories, unresolved issues and unanswered questions all haunt the path to a peaceful afterlife.
Using supernatural powers such as 'ghost vision' to see and interact with objects hidden in the ghost world, and 'ghost light' to see in the dark, you'll guide Albert through a variety of locations filled with puzzles, platforming challenges and some surprising and uniquely British characters.
- An emotional and personal story
- Supernatural powers
- Clever, logical puzzles
- Fun platforming and physical challenges
- A rich believable world of classic Gothic locations
- Environmental storytelling
- A cast of charming and eccentric characters, both alive and dead
