A downloadable game for Windows, macOS, Linux, and Android

Cruelty. Forgiveness. Loneliness. Deceit. 

Dead Wishes embarks on a journey of human emotion, empathy, and horrific romance. Take the time to unravel each character's backstory while using their experiences to examine your personal moral code. 

Antiheroes... or villains?

After the death of your parents, you move cities to begin a new life. However, the burden of their deaths weighs you down, and you find yourself holed up in your dingy apartment, sluggish, apathetic, and on the verge of eviction. 

You pave the path for the plot of the game. Will you be wrapped up in a love-triangle with the mafia? Or a murdering circle of friends? Dead Wishes weaves various plot lines between routes and waits for the player to connect the dots.

Combining traditional dating simulators and thriller fiction, Dead Wishes is a game that pokes at grey areas of morality.
