What happens when we die?
Is death really as it seems?
What if we had the wrong idea?
What if death wasn't death at all?

When a visit to the island's mansion turns out to be much more than our protagonist bargains for, discover what happens in the aftermath, uncover a nefarious secret, and earn an audience with the prestigious lord of the estate.

Death? Preposterous! is a non-violent RPG with metaphysical aspects. Rather than battles where you fight monsters, there are puzzle-like encounters with strange creatures and your goal is to determine the correct way to navigate them.

I've been creating it over the last year and a half in RPG Maker MV on my own (though I certainly had the help of many generous people providing plugins, music, and graphics resources) and I'm happy to be able to finally release it for everyone. I hope you will enjoy this unorthodox game that offers something a bit different from your run-of-the-mill experience.

Full Game Features:
  • Play as up to 10 different characters, or as few as 1.
  • Befriend key characters and learn more about their lives. Or don't. It's up to you.
  • Interact with creatures in refreshingly non-violent, puzzle-like encounters.
  • Earn a variety of ending sequences to the game that will differ depending on the way you played through it.
  • Save your progress anywhere in the game for a more flexible and enjoyable gameplay experience.

Ooh, profile banners! I like.
what's the difference between a trailer and a teaser trailer...?
This profile banner thing is great! Not sure on the size needed, but it's still a nice feature.

Made mine nice and edgy because I'm still 15 at heart.
Anyone ever played Chrono Cross? I have been dying to create another micro-biome tileset that is heavily inspired by the Isle of the Damned in that game. So, a Micro Biome Bones edition. Anyone interested in this?
