Have a Nice Death Expands Universe With Web Comic Series


Starting today on Have a Nice Death’s website, Twitter and Facebook channels, everyone can feast their eyes upon the first comic in the web comic series based on the darkly charming 2D action roguelike Have a Nice Death. In partnership with Magic Design Studios, the web comic series is created by beloved comic and children’s book artist Anthony Wheeler who worked with the development team to faithfully bring the universe of Have a Nice Death to life in comic form. Mortals who have played the hack’n’scythe adventure especially will find that each comic in the series brings unique stories that give a deeper view into the darkly charming characters in the game. 


For the first comic in the series, “Life’s a Beach”, the main character of Have a Nice Death, Death, is bombarded with requests from his employees at Death Incorporated. As an overworked CEO of Death, Inc., he decides to leave all of his troubles behind and take a nice beach vacation instead. The next comic, “Chaos at Work”, is set to launch next Wednesday, November 23. Additional web comics will be released leading up to Have a Nice Death’s launch on Nintendo Switch and PC (Steam) on March 22, 2023. 


Have a Nice Death is a hand-drawn 2D Action Roguelike where gamers will assume the role of Death, Founder and CEO of Death Incorporated, the giant underworld organization responsible for processing souls in the afterlife. As the company’s supreme leader, they will explore the darkly charming, procedurally generated departments of the corporation’s headquarters to round up and rehabilitate rogue employees who have been ignoring company protocol and snatching up far too many souls on Earth. Getting the department bosses—also known as Sorrows—and their minions under control, however, is a difficult task and will require multiple runs to complete. Luckily, players will have an arsenal of weapons, spells and special skills on hand to get the job done. Developed by Magic Design Studios, Have a Nice Death is now available on Steam as part of Early Access for $14.99.
