Using collage and pixel art in tandem as its center aesthetic Middens takes the perspective of an ambiguous drifter traversing a veritable x-zone. Roving its interminable wastes the nomad chances upon a sentient revolver beside an ominous pile of remains. The pistol offers its exploit in exchange for a pledge of inextricable companionship. Espousing to be the player’s conscience the dubious weapon directs the drifter to a nearby outpost wherein the story further unfolds. Despite its appearance as a wasteland the rift is home to many strange denizens—-some dangerous and others harmless. Whatever their disposition the pistol represents the choice to engage them or to spare them. Offense and passivity both have their appropriate times with rewards and consequences being granted to both paths respectively.

Stirred from trickster myths and early folk tales Where They Cremate the Roadkill is an action RPG featuring a fool on an outing to make their fortune where fortune has no foot hold. With an arrest warrant for the Devil they step out into a world where even the land is in conspiracy against you. To succeed they'll have to play a careful game or they'll be the next card to enter their adversary's hand.

Where They Cremate the Roadkill contains an open fully animated world with real-time combat populated by over 300 unique creatures(all of which can be destroyed by the player). Learn subversive spells that allow the player to perform occult miracles, destroy enemies, warp reality and prank the public. Bring to life an army of animate objects, turn people into flies and pigs, summon exiled spirits for conversation and cast love spells on the hapless town folk.
