Death and Taxes Free Demo Goes Live
Developer Placeholder Gameworks’ Death and Taxes draws inspiration from Papers, Please in its gameplay mechanics and art style. The latter puts you on the borders of an imaginary country and your decisions affect those who enter and those who don’t, but your decisions in Death and Taxes will decide who dies and who lives.
The title puts you in the role of the Grim Reaper, as if it was an office job. You are thrown dozens of files on your desk every morning, and you have to go through them to decide who dies and who will live another day. Your decisions will affect the world heavily, and sometimes your moral and emotions will come in the way when you read their personal stories. Death and Taxes puts you in the hot seat on whether you are a heartless Grim Reaper or will you have a soft heart every now and then?
In this 2D, narrative-based game, you take the role of the Grim Reaper… on an office job. Your job is to decide which people are going to live or die. Your choices will affect the world around you. Keep the chaos away or foil plots to destroy the world and rise through the ranks of Reapers all the way up to MIDDLE-MANAGEMENT, wow!
