I’m not much of a dancer, but then again, when I see the pop stars of today flailing their arms about like someone who is having a seizure, maybe I don’t give myself as much credit as I deserve. When you see someone bust some moves, you can’t help but feel entranced by the power of dance.
Meet Felix The Reaper – A Grim Reaper With Groove
Felix The Reaper is a 3D puzzle game in which you play as Felix, a member of ‘The Ministry of Death’ – you set elaborate plans for people’s deaths… In doing this job, Felix has access to the Human Realm in which he hopes to meet Betty the Maiden who works for the ‘Ministry of Life’ – so he can ask her out for a dance!
As Felix you’ll groove your way through the levels, using objects and the scenery to make a shadow path so you can traverse the landscapes. You’ll need to collect items and place them in certain spots to trigger your plans of death:
With the art style like an early Tim Burton, the story and humour of Terry Pratchett, a groovy disco soundtrack with the developers attending dance workshops so the animations have real polish to them; Felix The Reaper could become a cult classic.
So, slap on your headphones, have a dance and keep your eye out for this upcoming indie title due for release this year.
