Shufflecomp 2014 Review: Dead Man's Party, by Morrissey

One-line summary: A junior associate grim reaper must puzzle through a deceased man's house in order to bring back his ghost.

Game inspired by: "Dead Man's Party," by Oingo Boingo

Things I liked: The balance between humor and poignancy. The body-soul connection, in one striking scene.

Things I might like to see different:
  • More of the party guests.
  • More specific detail, as opposed to generic, in the house locations. The back office locations feel more "real"
  • A little less reliance on one particular tool to solve puzzles.
  • Two z's in Hazzard. I learned far too much about USA TV lol
