In Better Late Than DEAD you’ll explore an open sandbox environment which, depending on your choices, could or could not have a foreseeable end...

You awaken on an island with no memory.  There’s a child’s photograph in your pocket.  The child’s face means nothing to you.  To uncover the mysteries of the island and the past you must search for resources and locate a way to escape.  Played in both first and third person view, Better Late Than DEAD features a crafting system inspired by classic point and click adventure games.  You won’t stack items in a table but will create new ones by using actions like Cut & Tie.
