Not as good as Decrypt, but still a great Crux game!! 


Loved it!

Thank you for playing Funeral (our first game) and sharing your video. We're glad you enjoyed the experience. 


So good! Doing the playthroughs I did of the first of your games I discovered, Within and then later Hospital, made me want to play everything you guys made, so I went back to the first game you released and this was amazing! So well written and emotionally charged and unsettlingly visualized even with as short and simplistic as it is. Absolutely well done and amazing for a first release and I will be playing the other three games of yours that I haven't yet, as well as anything and everything you release in the future. Keep the good stuff coming! 

Thank you for your kind words and for playing our games; your support is deeply appreciated. 

love the game thank you :):):)

Hi there, thank you for playing Funeral. This was our first ever game :) Glad you enjoyed it. 


The way everything was presented through both the visuals and the written narrative was great! Everything came together perfectly and I appreciated the angle of the story. 

Hello again; we're glad to know that you enjoyed Funeral. :)  Thank you for playing and sharing your stream! 

Incidentally, we're working on our next title, which should be out in a couple of months. Be sure to follow us on Twitter and on itch.io to get the latest news. Stay safe!


The game is really good for a character piece, you really managed to make each of the backstories distinct, and stand out to the fathers role within their lives. The visuals are great, you really managed to create such a sombre set piece, it really made the narrative feel more depressing.

Thanks for playing The Funeral and for sharing your stream. Be sure to check out our latest titles, The Hospital &  Decrypt. 


Very interesting. I don't hear anything more about me too movement.  Thanks for making it.

Thank you for playing the game.

After the excellent story told in The Babysitter, I just had to look into more of what this developer has to offer, when I found Funeral. The melancholy atmosphere comes through from the start, and the interesting characters make you want to learn more. I look forward to what this studio does next.

Great story telling and character design, an excellent start for a studio with so much potential!

I really enjoyed the game. The suspense had me thinking there'd be a jumpscare lol but still enjoyed despite there not being one
