The Mortician's Tale is described as a "death-positive" game that aims to equip its players with the emotional toolkit necessary to comprehend mortality, while destigmatizing the universal experience, making it more approachable and digestible to discuss.

Players take on the role of a mortician, and are tasked with a variety of real actions, from gently informing families of a death, to preparing a body for cremation. The game aims to illuminate the fact that death is one commonality we all share, helping an individual prepare for or process the experience of death. Through the Mortician's Tale, players are invited to engage and interact with death in a respectful manner that normalizes the process.
