Daedalic Entertainment released a brand new behind-the-scenes video this week showing off the work behind Felix The Reaper. The video has a few of the developers chatting about how they created the look and feel of the game as you see Felix dance around to his music. Watching death work with a pair of Bluetooth headphones and a pep in his step is kinda cool to watch them create. Enjoy the video as the game will be released on October 17th.
Felix works at The Ministry of Death, and he’s in love with Betty The Maiden from The Ministry of Life. He believes that going to the human world as a field reaper will enable him to one day meet her, so he’s taken the job of making sure people die—and taught himself to dance, in order to impress the love of his (un)life.
Since Felix only moves in the shadows, he needs to tread carefully through this strange world. Luckily, reapers like Felix are able to turn the sun and shift the shadows, creating the paths necessary to navigate the land of the living. He does so to solve puzzles and make sure people die according to ministerial plans.
Each level unlocks a hardcore version of itself for the motivated ministerial go-getter. You can also collect skull achievements that further unlock bonus time trials for the most resourceful employees.
