Life Goes On is a comically-morbid platform game where you guide heroic knights to their demise and use their dead bodies to solve puzzles. Impale knights on spikes to create a safe path. Catch a knight on a saw blade (ouch!) to strategically land the body on a button. Freeze your knights into blocks of ice to reach higher ground. Make your way through this strange, treacherous, and trap-ridden world to find the Cup of Life. On your quest, you will summon knight after knight and brutally sacrifice them to solve each challenging puzzle. In Life Goes On, death is not a setback—it is the only means to success.

Video Review:

An unusual platformer that has a hint of Monty Python & The Holy Grail to it. Sacrifice yourself to aid the cause :)

The video didn't catch me at first, but when I realized the game mechanic you were implementing...
Well, that's just out of the ordinary!
I'll be watching this one :P.

It's been awhile since a game on indiedb really woo-ed me, but Life Goes On really has blown me away. Nothing about the mechanics feel like gimmicks, but rather everything blends together to create a cohesive and unique experience. I honestly recommend anyone, whether on the fence or not, to download this and give it a try. If you need a little more convincing, I put together a video of the awesome experience I had with the game:

Life Goes On, a game where you may sacrifice your character, so that the next in line can use your dead body as an advantage.
Talk about, over my dead body...
