Felix The Reaper is a challenging single-player
puzzle game
. You take on the role as Felix, whose job is
to make sure that people die. To do this,
Felix must work in the shadows and rearrange faith so that death is
always the end result.

At its core, the game is about manipulating
shadows
 so that Felix can set up his targets safely
covered by the shadows. The core gameplay has a Hitman Go’ish,
Monument Valley’ing and Sokoban-like simplicity running through
it.

There are three rules you have to master to become a successful
Reaper:

Rule #1: Stick to the shadows
Each level is set on a grid-based platform. The squares of the grid
are either lit up or in shadow, and Felix has to do his job in the
shadows.

Rule #2: Control the shadows
Felix has the ability to rotate the sun, and move objects, to
create new pathways for him to reach his target.

Rule #3: Make sure people die
The end goal of each level is to set up your targets and have them
meet their maker.

To add something extra to this core game experience, we wrapped
it in deep layers of storytelling, death, dance, art history, love
and comedy. That way you get to enjoy a wholesome story world,
while boiling your brains on complicatetedly straight forward
shadow puzzles about Death.

Felix The Reaper sprang from a fascination with the sprawling,
humorous and grotesque art history of Death. Many themes have
emerged in the cultural identity of Death, including The
Dance of Death
 or Danse
Macabre
 and Death And The Maiden. We sort
of mashed those two themes together in Felix The Reaper.

For the character himself and the world around him, the
inspiration was more diverse: We took cues from the ancient TV
show The Twilight Zone, medieval painters
like Bruegel and Bosch and the cartoon
characters of Adventure Time and Hayao
Miyazaki
.

Another important inspiration for Felix The Reaper was the
amazing artistic collaborators in the production. We worked with
dancers, a long list of music artists and history scholars.

The Dance

Several dancers contributed to the game’s production, and
eventually Gunilla Lind and Raphaël Ferdinand Eder-Kastling
improvised the final moves that ended up in the game.

The Music

Of course a game with a dancing protagonist needs great
music—why else would he be dancing? We designed the game in a way
that lets the music artists be themselves. We wanted them to add to
the game through their personal artistic expression, rather than
ask them to be what we want them to be. This made for a varied and
strange combination of music. But since the gameplay is a
non-stressful puzzler, you actually have time to appreciate and
enjoy the weirdness while playing.

The Art History

The idea for the game itself stems from art history. We actually
started with The Danse
Macabre
 and Death and The Maiden as a
basis, and then asked ourselves: How can we make a game about this?
Eventually and through several different prototypes, we ended up
here.

Alongside the production, a history scholar was diving into the
art history of Death across more than 10 centuries for a book
manuscript he is working on, and every time he hit upon something
interesting he told us, and we tried to put it into the game if it
fit. There are five different articles by this
historian Søren Hein Rasmussen within the
game—you can unlock them as you progress
