Independent developer and publisher Mostly Games will be launching their Kickstarter campaign to fund PEPPERED, a heavily narrative-driven, light-hearted 2D platformer which aims at subverting well-known gaming tropes to tell a story about the existential struggles of everyday life.
The game features a world where nobody ever dies, and the God of Death is on the verge of breaking free–not the usual hijinks and shenanigans, but rather gloom and doom. Luckily, life presents the player with an opportunity to take this matter into their own hands with a variety of ways to approach the task.
