Don’t fear the reaper – at least not when he brings a musical, romantic, comedic 3D puzzle adventure. See, Felix The Reaper is pretty adorable… and you’ll very soon be able to go hands on with him.
Announced today as the latest addition to Daedalic’s line up, Felix The Reaper will be playable at the Indie Arena Booth during Gamescom in Cologne, between 21-25 August, and then again at the PAX Rising area at PAX West in Seattle, WA, between 31 August-3 September.
A murderous romcom puzzle adventure game, Felix The Reaper from Danish indie devs Kong Orange has been described as a “3D shadow manipulation puzzle adventure”. In it, we see players take on the role of the titular reaper, who works at The Ministry of Death and is in love with Betty The Maiden from The Ministry of Life. See, Felix believes that going to the human world and completing the grim tasks of a field reaper will enable him to one day meet her.
Throughout the game, Felix will need to move through the shadows, manipulating the environment to ensure that the Ministry of Death meets its quota, all as he tries to fulfil his own agenda of finding Betty. Oh, and as he does so, he’ll be found practising his dance moves while he is at it!!
Completion of each level of Felix the Reaper will unlock a hardcore version of itself for the dedicated ministerial achiever, and replayability should come in as players can also collect skull achievements, which further unlocked bonus time trials for the extremely resourceful reaper.
Daedalic founder and CEO Carsten Fichtelmann said: “From its quirky mix of challenging puzzles and indie music soundtrack, everyone here at Daedalic love what the team at Kong Orange has put together with Felix the Reaper. We are delighted to publish the game on behalf of Kong Orange, as well as get it in the hands of consumers at gamescom and PAX West over the next few weeks.”
Esben Kjær Ravn, Producer at Kong Orange said: “We are excited to partner with Daedalic, as Felix the Reaper will benefit from its expertise when it comes to marketing and distribution, allowing us to focus on completing a game that will make Felix and the Ministry of Death proud. We are also looking forward to introducing Felix to gamers, media and influencers during gamescom and PAX West.”
Felix the Reaper features include:
- An original 3D shadow mechanic at the core of the game
- Challenging puzzles in an original story world
- Choose your own tune from a selection of 10+ indie music artists on Felix’s Walkman
- Collect skull achievements that further unlock bonus time trials
