Sara is a young woman whose time to die has come, so she gets a visit from the lady.
Unwilling to accept her death at such an early age, Sara challenges Death to play a game. “The condition is that you let me live for as long as I can play”. Death accepts the challenge, and so the game begins.
Inspiration came from an old movie by Ingmar Bergman – The Seventh Seal – and by Sara herself. Sara does exist, I met her when I was studying philosophy mistaking her for another old friend. By chance; best way to find a new friend indeed. Here she plays as my alter ego and the game is about love. Yet it is not a love story. It is an existential catch on love.
In a later stage of development I decided to ask Sara to be the illustrator. She shared my same doubts about love, she did a stunning job and inspired major design changes.
The first part of Sara And Death is free: 3 chapters of the story and 13 puzzles. If you liked part one, there is an In App Purchase to unlock part two and support my work.

Wonderfully thought up!
I got a Twitter follower from the maker and asked if I want to play his game. Since I am a gamer, I said yes. The art is well done and so far the story is good! So 5 stars for me.
I love this comment because it makes me look like a stalker. I am glad you liked it. :D
Wonderful game. Seemingly simple yet thoughtful and enticing.
