As I replied to HooterBabby, we're still contemplating next project, might take a bit of a break from the Postmortem universe for a change. But it's definitely a ripe material for more scenarios, and something we considered from the get go, so might get back to it in the future :)

Glad you enjoyed it tho!

I played the freeware version and I have to say I was quite surprised. Well written lore explained well to understand, interesting characters that have different views and opinions all with well written characteristics. I think it's good that there isn't a good or bad ending but just a ending.

The trailer ends with the words "...because one must."
...don´t you think there is an important little word missing?
