Have a Nice Death is finally here on Steam Early Access. The game has players take on the role of an overworked Death. A vacation is in order but because the employees have run rampant, everything has been thrown off balance. It’s time to grab the scythe and show everyone who’s the boss.

In a post, developer Magic Design Studios shared that when they first came up with this game, they wanted one that would offer an unforgettable roguelike experience that comes with its own dark and charming twist. The team revealed that Early Access is a way to refine the game along with the growing community.

Features of the game include:

  • Welcome to Death Incorporated
    • Discover and explore the darkly-charming and procedurally-generated departments of Death Inc.
  • Players get to meet a diverse cast of memorable characters always willing to share the latest office gossip.
    • This includes the pumpkin-headed assistant Pump Quinn.
  • Reap What You Sow
    • Sharpen those skills through a fast-paced hack n’ slash combat.
    • Players can use more than 30 unique weapons and spells that they can find and upgrade to create devastating combinations.
  • ​Death Never Sleeps
    • Since Death can’t die, players can use whatever it is they’ve learned and earned to overcome the numerous minions and bosses in each department of Death Inc.
    • A performance review after every run guarantees that players can unlock interesting items and upgrades that will help in the progress of the journey.
  • ​When Life Gives You Curses
    • In Death Inc., taking more power is a controversial move as it goes against company culture.
    • An example is that players adopting a Curse upgrade for themselves might result in the Labor Inspector granting their subordinates enhanced powers.
    • Worse it could raise the cost of koffee and other items that are vital to the work output.
