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.

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.

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
