About This Game

A New Horror Adventure from the Creator of Home!

Worse Than Death is a scary, emotional thriller about a high school reunion that goes horribly wrong. You play Holly as she runs for her life, desperate to rescue her best friend Flynn from a terrible force that's hunting them both, Holly must survive unexpected truths about her home town, her friends, and even herself.

A Hair-Raising Adventure!

Run, leap, crawl and hide through eight chilling locales in this pulp horror adventure game. You'll solve puzzles, use items that you find, and unearth terrible truths. But watch out! You'll have to make careful use of your environment to slip past the unseen horrors that now haunt the halls of your wretched home town. Make too much noise near a monster and it'll hear you, sending you fleeing to the next room for safety.

Main Features

  • The second adventure in our small-town horror saga!
  • smoothly animated 2D visuals fused with original, high-res art drawn entirely by hand on an iPad Pro!
  • Action-adventure gameplay that sees you crawling under objects, vaulting over obstacles, and racing for the nearest hiding spot to stay safe
  • Horrible monsters that you can't see — but that you can track using lights, sound, and even Holly's own heartbeat
  • Two unlockable difficulty modes (Hard and Nightmare)
  • Rich, 3D positional audio that will get under your skin
  • A dark, unsettling soundscape punctuated with music by Canadian rock-and-roll band The Secrets
  • Play with keyboard-and-mouse or gamepad; switch between the two at will

Mature Content Description

The developers describe the content like this:

As a horror game, Worse Than Death features depictions of violence such as: low-res pixel-art gore within the environment, dead bodies (both low- and high-resolution), blood-splattered walls, dripping blood, and sounds indicating violence (squishy pulpy sounds, screams, etc.). In one scene, the player finds another character hanging by her neck from a rope, swaying back and forth. The player never sees a violent act being committed (e.g. you never see someone dying, just the aftermath).

Though the game got an ESRB descriptor of "sexual themes," these are limited to: allusions to an affair between two characters; one character's confession of possible love for another. No sexual acts are actually depicted. (We've checked "Sexual content" here to be honest with the process; we're not sure if what we've described would qualify.)

System Requirements

    Minimum:
    • OS: Windows Vista, 7, 8.1, 10 (32- or 64-bit)
    • Processor: Intel Core2 Duo (2GHz+)
