    alex_stallings's A Mortician's Tale (PC)

    [August 29, 2018 11:04:50 PM]
    The second time playing the game, I was more focused on the themes of the game itself. If you ignore all the pastel colors and the soothing music, it is a very dark game. As a player, I found myself getting very depressed sometimes while playing the game. Some of the deceased people have died from cancer or old age. There is one situation where a teenager has killed himself and you must follow the family's wishes for his burial. At each funeral, you must listen to all of the friends and family members conversations about their beloved deceased friend or family member. After doing that, as a sign of respect to the dead, you click over the casket or urn and give a slight bow. Only at that point are you allowed to leave the funeral reception. But on the other side of it, there is a lot of happiness sprinkled into the game. Every morning you receive emails, one of which is from a funeral newsletter. That newsletter talks about respecting pronouns of the deceased, or respecting the culture or religion that the deceased came from in the forms of wearing different colors other than black to the funeral. Also in the conversations of the family of the deceased, you will hear a small conversation about how one funeral-goer never told her grandfather that she was gay. That conversation takes place between the two women, who from the context of the conversation you can tell that they are girlfriends. Those little moments in the game brighten it up a little. As a huge advocate for LGBTQ+ rights myself, as I am part of that community, it makes me so happy to see small side characters given those same distinctions and being given that small piece of backstory. I was also delighted to see the recognition of other religions and cultures rather than keeping it more based on the traditional US funeral customs. Overall, I am still very excited to see how this game will end.
