S!Players are thrust into a quirky and curious world where Crows are in charge of collecting the souls of the dead.Learn about some of the weird and wonderful personalities you’ll encounter early on in your journey.
S — our dark and quirky action-adventure about a sword-wielding crow tasked with retrieving the souls of the dead. The response to the announcement has been overwhelming. Since the beginning of development almost four years ago we have had a lot faith in our game idea. But it’s been very encouraging to see how excited everyone is about being a bird with an sword and exploring the strange world we’ve created.
We wanted to give you a glimpse into the world that you will be entering and some of the characters you will meet along your journey.
You will play the role of a crow for the mysterious Reaping Commission. This bureaucratic organization has been enlisted to the service of a mysterious creature called the Lord Of Doors. The Reaper’s wait in the Hall of Doors, their main office headquarters, while they wait for assignments to arrive.
The Reapers are all Crows who were enlisted to bring back the souls of those who have died. They use a series doors that can link any two points in the space to travel around and complete their tasks. The Lords of Doors gave them this technology. It is powered by soul energy so it is important to keep a steady supply of souls in the Commission. Your hard-earned souls will be rewarded with combat-enhancing upgrades.
Assignments are rare these days. The majority of life on the planet has been lost. There aren’t many living things left, so there are fewer souls to be reaped. It’s all the rage in the office when you suddenly get assigned a Giant Soul for your next mission. Souls are a form of currency in the Crow’s economy. Landing a Giant Soul would be a huge pay day!
Steadhone The Gravedigger
Steadhone is one of the first people you’ll meet as you embark on your adventure. He is the keeper for the Lost Cemetery, an elderly gentle soul who has taken on the responsibility of making sure that the island’s deceased receive a proper funeral and burial.
Steadhone is an unusual character that you won’t see often in this world. He can’t die, even with the help of a reaper. He feels his time here is over and should have died many moons ago, but he continues to live. You might learn more about his past if you explore the world of Death’s Door. But, in the meantime, you can give him a sense o purpose by sending a lot of work his direction (by reaping many souls).
You will also meet another character on your journey. He has a curse to carry, but this one is even stranger: he has a pot as a head. The strange Witch of Urns cursed him with a permanent ceramic noggin. Why? Who knows? We know, we know. But you’ll have the chance to play the game to find it out.
Pothead is a simple man with simple needs. He doesn’t like combat but enjoys gardening. He claims to be a keen horticulturist and has left beautiful green pots filled with soil all over the world. These pots can be your lifeline. They allow you to plant seeds anywhere in the world that will grow into flowers that will bring back your health. Pothead, thank you!
The Witch of Urns
The mysterious Witch that cursed Pothead lives in a luxurious mansion surrounded by stately gardens. Every corner of her beautiful home is littered with pots, urns and ceramics. Some even have their own minds.
You will have the opportunity to meet her and speak to her many times during your journey. This will give you a glimpse into her mind and allow you to get to know this lovely, welcoming, but pot-obsessed, old lady. How could someone so welcoming have inflicted a curse upon Pothead?
She is the first of three Giant Souls that you must reap in order to unlock the mysteries behind Death’s Door. As you interact with her, you will learn more about her motivations and the impact she had on the world.
This is just a small glimpse into the strange world of Death’s Door’s inhabitants. We hope you find them charming, fascinating, and sometimes funny. These characters will be encountered early in your journey. You’ll also encounter many other strange and wonderful characters as you move on.
It’s a place and a cast that we have grown to love over the years, drawing inspirations from everything we loved growing-up. It’s dark, absurd, beautiful, and sometimes bleakly gorgeous all at once. We can’t wait for you to come!
Get it now
Although it can be monotonous to harvest the souls of the deceased and to punch a clock, it is honest work for Crows. When your soul is stolen, the job becomes lively. You must track down a desperate criminal to take you to a realm that isn’t affected by death, where creatures grow beyond their expiration and are flooded with greed and power.
