A lot has changed since the early prototype. I've been working for about a year on new systems, story, and all sorts of neat stuff! This demo is a teaser of those systems and hints of the deeper experience to come in The Mortuary Assistant in Spring 2022!

About The Mortuary Assistant

Having completed your degree in mortuary sciences, you have taken on an apprenticeship at River Fields Mortuary. Over the past several months you have logged many hours aiding the Mortician in daily tasks along with learning the ins and outs of the embalming process as well as how to properly handle and care for the deceased.

Over your time at River Fields, you have heard rumors of families bringing their deceased loved ones believed to be possessed or otherwise entangled with the paranormal to this specific mortuary to put to rest. But, with such a stigma around death and what happens when we die, it’s no surprise people make up stories around the dead.

Late one night, you are called into work to handle some embalmings. Death doesn’t keep day time hours. But there is something different about these bodies because there is something different about you. The phone rings with the Mortician on the other end. The rumors are true, and you can not leave.

Perform embalmings, handle the various jobs around the mortuary, and exorcise demonic forces. All in a day’s work.


The downloadable demo is currently a short prototype of the game. It focuses mainly on the atmosphere and concept of the project. I hope to release a more in-depth demo in the future as the project continues.

I CAN’T EVEN WITH THIS GAME 😂😂 If you enjoy the video, pls like & subscribe, just trying to grow my channel 😎👊🏽

Went for all 5 Endings while scared out of my mind. (this was before the latest 6th ending)

I loved every second of it 

My first playthrough of the game. Absolutely Terrifying

This game scare me out!!!!

It's my top 5! For sure!


Definitely had some goods scares, I really enjoyed it! (here is my playthrough if anyone is interested!)

this game is amazing its very scary

Great Game!

A little late on this but very scary and fun 

it was really gooooood just couldnt get file... dont know why but i like this game!

very scary game made me scream!

Excelente juego

I recently played the teaser/demo, and I have to say that this is one of the scariest games I've played in a bit. The variation jump scares it has is crazy. The disturbing sounds like footsteps behind you definitely make for a very tense, unnerving playthrough. I was sweating bullets by the end, was a very enjoyable playthrough though and I'll probably buy the full game! 10/10

Embalmed Santa for Christmas! 😭 

I really enjoy this game on every replay, each shift and jump scares are full of surprises. I've played other Xmas horrors and indies in general on my channel! 

This game was a joy from start to finish. Excellently built on from the demo, one of the best horror games I've ever played. Check out my video 🙂

This game is wonderful and quite a stunning piece of craftmanship, patience and artistry. I wonder did you use Unity HDRP or is this all the build in pipeline? 

This teaser demo was FANTASTIC! If you're looking for a spooky game this spooky season, highly recommend! Will definitely be buying the full game :D

I can't wait to play the full game! Was not expecting a lot of what happened, this was really good. Will be checking out the full game soon :) 

Are there plans on adding any new voice work to the game?

So unbelievably terrifying! A game mastered in the art of horror! This game will evacuate your bowels, make your eyelashes crinkle into dust, and cause your latent siamese twin to finally emerge from your back due to the fear your body will experience! Great Game!

Here's the 2nd part to my playthrough! Going for all the different endings!


Played the game a bit ago - didnt realize it was on itch as well! I had a great time, thank you for the great game!

this is part 5, working on getting all 5(+You just fail the game) endings, still catches me with uneasy feelings and full chills. High recommend the full game, it’s been fun to play and still unsure in my choices each time!

This game was easy.....and not scary at all....I didn't get scared ONCE 🥲

Played the full game and I…. LOVE IT! There’s never a dull moment! Absolutely AWESOME work!

How is the full game even scarier than the teaser? 😱 Absolutely loved every minute so far

Played the full game! Absolutely amazing!

Gonna go back for the true ending!


It begins....


Bought on Steam! Only played the first hour or so. Amazing experience so far :D please, go play for yourselves, everyone!


I suggest buying the full game on steam!! I absolutely loved it! This is probably the scariest game I ever played

Bought the full game on Steam. Highly recommend! Spooky from start to finish!

Great Game! Can't wait to play it again!

Played the demo a year ago and I've been anticipating the full release ever since. DSDev (who is a single dev) has done an amazing job of making a unique, fun, and scary horror experience. 

This game is absolutely fantastic and I highly recommend purchasing the full release on steam. It has quite a bit of replay value because of multiple endings and many random scares. The voice acting is also top-notch.
