Embalm and Exorcize the Dead in Supernatural Horror Game The Mortuary Assistant, Available Now for Windows PC. Publisher DreadXP’s Highly-Anticipated New Game Haunts Steam and Itch.io


Check out the trailer here.

Quote
Los Angeles, CA (August 2, 2022) - DreadXP — an independent horror publisher and production company — and developer DarkStone Digital today launched the highly-anticipated supernatural first-person horror game, The Mortuary Assistant. Available now for Windows PC, The Mortuary Assistant casts players as Rebecca Owens, a recent Mortuary Sciences graduate who starts an apprenticeship at the infamous RiverFields Mortuary. She soon learns that the dead don't stay dead at this mortuary. Demonic forces are at play at RiverFields Mortuary…

Late one night, you are called into work to process and embalm some cadavers. Death doesn’t keep day time hours. But there is something different about these bodies, because there is something different about you. The phone rings with the Mortician on the other end. The rumors are true, and you can not leave.

The Mortuary Assistant features demonic banishments, creepy puzzles, realistic mortician tasks, and multiple endings. Each playthrough of the game is unique, featuring different demons, bodies, and scares. As Rebecca, you must balance your mortuary tasks while hunting for clues as to what's behind these paranormal occurrences. Brave dark hallways and pay close attention to details if you wish to walk away with your soul intact. With a story told through multiple playthroughs, each run offers something unique.

“Following a very successful demo released last October, and lots of positive buzz from PAX East 2022, The Mortuary Assistant has now officially been released for PC gamers worldwide,” said Patrick Ewald, owner and producer at DreadXP. “We’re proud of our collaboration with developer DarkStone Digital to create one of DreadXP’s biggest games to date, and we look forward to players discovering what secrets (and nightmares) wait ahead.”

“Launching a game that you’ve worked on by yourself is like showing the world your high school journal. It’s deeply personal; you’re kind of afraid to let others see it, but you feel such a deep happiness when someone connects with it. I’m showing two years of blood, sweat, and tears to the world with The Mortuary Assistant,” said Brian Clarke, owner of DarkStone Digital and solo developer of The Mortuary Assistant. “It’s exhilarating and terrifying, but I’m truly proud of what I’ve created. I’m excited for players to see what I’ve been working so hard on.”

The scares in The Mortuary Assistant aren’t limited to the supernatural, as the game features authentic tasks practiced by real-life morticians — this include making incisions on the dead, draining corpses of residual blood, retrieving bodies from cold storage, and conducting embalmings. The first person perspective puts you right into the macabre medical action, which only ramps up the tension as the bodies being worked on start to wander.

The Mortuary Assistant Key Features:
• Keep your eye on the (em)bal(mings): Perform various jobs around the mortuary including embalmings, body tagging and general upkeep. But watch out for disappearing bodies. They’re the worst!

• Creepy But Make it Authentic: The Mortuary Assistant features authentic mortician tasks that are fun for all! Who knew that retrieving bodies, making incisions, and draining blood could be so much fun?

• Get Your Daily Exorcize: Some pesky bodies just won’t stay dead, and you’ll have to hit them with a standard exorcism. A word of warning, the learning curve to exorcisms are a real killer.

• Collect them all!: The RiverFields Mortuary is chalk full of useful items that will make your job more pleasant. From matches and scalpels, to PCs with Windows 95 and demonic artifacts, they’ll help cure your boredom and maybe even keep you alive.


Happy Gaming!

Feature Film Adaptation of Hit Horror Video Game “The Mortuary Assistant” Announced

Since its launch in early August 2022, The Mortuary Assistant has become an internet phenomenon — achieving a top 10 streamed games spot on Twitch, becoming a Top Seller on Steam, and taking gaming TikTok by storm. It has been played by top gaming YouTubers such as Markiplier and Jacksepticeye, garnering over tens of millions of views. The Mortuary Assistant tasks players with performing routine mortician tasks while enduring increasingly bizarre and horrifying encounters with demonic entities. To survive, players must identify the correct demon and corpse that it has bound itself to and exorcize it.

The Mortuary Assistant film adaptation will be written and directed by Jeremiah Kipp, whose credits include SLAPFACE (writer/director, now available on AMC+ and Shudder), DRAW UP AND STARE (director) starring Academy Award winner Melissa Leo, the Chinese-American co-production BROKEN BADGES (director), the HP Lovecraft inspired BLACK WAKE (writer/director) and THE SADIST (director) starring Tom Savini. He is currently in post on his latest feature, THE BOO HAG (director), filmed earlier this year in Savannah, GA and DON'T PICK UP (director) starring Keith David & Kathryn Erbe.

“There's a quiet, unnerving intensity to The Mortuary Assistant that creeps into the player, creating a sense that something terrible could happen at any moment,” said the film’s writer and director, Jeremiah Kipp. “Writing the adaptation, I wanted to celebrate all of the game that terrified me as well as create a companion piece to it — honoring the dense creepy world developer Brian Clarke (DarkStone Digital) made and translating it into the visual storytelling and character driven horror of narrative filmmaking.

He continued, “I want to retain the minimalist setting in and around the mortuary, the fascination with the process of embalming, and the nerve shredding terror of the gameplay. Rebecca Owens is a fascinating character, vulnerable because of a traumatic past and committed in her self-reliance. It has been a truly crazy ride living in Brian's twisted world, and that's the experience we want to give the viewer.”

“The incredible reception to The Mortuary Assistant has cemented it as one of DreadXP’s most successful games to date,” said Patrick Ewald, CEO of Epic Pictures Group. “The world Brian Clarke created is rich with lore and the perfect subject to expand upon with a live-action feature film. DreadXP’s parent company Epic Pictures Group is already in a prime position to make that happen, having financed, produced, and distributed over 100 films over the past 15 years.”

“It’s such a rare and exciting opportunity to have your work adapted into film. It’s certainly something I never imagined would happen to me when I started developing the game two years ago,” said The Mortuary Assistant creator, Brian Clarke. “Movies have always been the main inspiration for the style of my games. I’m always trying to create story, dialogue, and moments that feel filmic, so an opportunity to bring this project full circle is making a dream of mine a reality.”

Clarke continued, “These characters and their stories are extremely important and personal to me. I’m honored to have people as talented as Jeremiah Kipp and devoted as Patrick Ewald, Ted Hentschke (Head of Production at DreadXP), and Abbey Smith (co-producer at DreadXP) to bring it all to life. Jeremiah is an amazingly skilled storyteller and I’m so excited to see him expand The Mortuary Assistant in new and different ways. I want the adaptation to be a great movie before anything else and I know it’s in great hands. I’m thrilled to be working with such passionate people.”

Patrick Ewald will produce. Brian Clarke and Ted Hentschke will executive produce. Abbey Smith will co-produce. Casting for the film will be announced in the future.

The Mortuary Assistant Synopsis:

Mortician Rebecca Owens thinks her first night on the job will be embalming a surplus of corpses, but she soon learns a sinister presence resides at River Fields Mortuary. As the dead awaken and malevolent spirits bind themselves to her, Rebecca has to learn how to combat the demons (including the figurative demons of her past) and survive the night.

Publisher DreadXP will be in attendance at PAX West 2022 in Seattle, Washington from September 2 - September 5 showing off its slate of popular and upcoming titles, as well as discussing first details about The Mortuary Assistant film.

The Mortuary Assistant video game is available for purchase for Windows PC on Steam for $24.99 USD.
