Postmortem is a FREE single-player role playing game. You are an agent of Death who must take one life from a cast of influential and ambitious characters in a industrial-revolution, conflict-torn country. Will Your Choice change the fate of a Nation? What unintended consequences could your meddling have?

Ocotober 18th, 1897. The city of Antrim in the country of Galicia. For the past five years the country has been torn in violent conflict between two ideologically and economically divided communities. On the precipice of a ceasefire, a high school, one of the few institutions to not segregate the two communities, has been vandalized. The uneasy peace has been made even more uneasy, but a benefit gala is planned to raise money for repairs. Rich and poor, influential and ambitious, they have gathered under one roof. You are an agent of death. The books of fate must be balanced, and one of these people must die. It is your choice; a choice that will change history. But how much should you meddle with mortal affairs? Perhaps a random choice is the fairest? What other effects could your involvement have? These are the questions you must consider in Postmortem

You will probably know right away if Postmortem is the game for you. There are a lot of words, the plotting is dense, and the relationships between the characters complex. It is, in short, a game of intrigue. And if intrigue intrigues you, then this will certainly intrigue you too. There is much of The Last Express and The Walking Dead in this game, in nuance as much as in gameplay.
