Murderous romcom puzzle adventure game Felix The Reaper coming to Switch, playable at Gamescom and PAX

Coming 2019 to Nintendo Switch, PlayStation 4, Xbox One, PC and Mac

Seasons don’t fear the reaper, and nor does Daedalic Entertainment GmbH, with the announcement that it is publishing Felix the Reaper, the musical, romantic comedy 3D puzzle adventure. The game from Danish indie developer Kong Orange will be playable at the Indie Arena Booth during gamescom in Cologne, between 21-25 August, and in the PAX Rising area at PAX West in Seattle, WA, between 31 August-3 September.

Felix the Reaper is described by Kong Orange as a “3D shadow manipulation puzzle adventure”. 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. 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.

In each level, Felix will need to move in the shadows and manipulate the environment to ensure that the Ministry of Death meets its quota, as well as fulfil his own agenda of finding Betty… and he is practising his dance moves while he is at it. Yes, Felix dances while making sure people die.

Completing each level of Felix the Reaper unlocks a hardcore version of itself for the dedicated ministerial achiever. Players can also collect skull achievements, which further unlock 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:

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

Felix’s dance moves have been choreographed with professional dancers
