Publisher DreadXP’s Highly-Anticipated New Game Haunts Steam and Itch.io.
DreadXP and developer DarkStone Digital today launched the highly-anticipated supernatural first-person horror game, The Mortuary Assistant. Available now for Windows PC, The Mortuary Assistant casts players as Rebecca Owens, a recent Mortuary Sciences graduate who starts an apprenticeship at the infamous RiverFields Mortuary. She soon learns that the dead don’t stay dead at this mortuary. Demonic forces are at play at RiverFields Mortuary…
Late one night, you are called into work to process and embalm some cadavers. Death doesn’t keep daytime hours. But there is something different about these bodies because there is something different about you. The phone rings with the Mortician on the other end. The rumors are true, and you can not leave.
The Mortuary Assistant features demonic banishments, creepy puzzles, realistic mortician tasks, and multiple endings. Each playthrough of the game is unique, featuring different demons, bodies, and scares. As Rebecca, you must balance your mortuary tasks while hunting for clues as to what’s behind these paranormal occurrences. Brave dark hallways and pay close attention to details if you wish to walk away with your soul intact. With a story told through multiple playthroughs, each run offers something unique.
The scares in The Mortuary Assistant aren’t limited to the supernatural, as the game features authentic tasks practiced by real-life morticians — this includes making incisions on the dead, draining corpses of residual blood, retrieving bodies from cold storage, and conducting embalmings. The first-person perspective puts you right into the macabre medical action, which only ramps up the tension as the bodies being worked on start to wander.
