Why Am I Dead At Sea is a mystery/adventure game with a twisted murder at its center. And you are the murder victim.

To understand why, you will need to inhabit the other residents of the ship and use them to investigate what led to your untimely demise. Each combination of characters leads to a unique conversation based on the relationship those two characters have. Understand what makes your shipmates tick, and uncover the secrets that they hold.

  • Solve a mystery in a completely new way
    In Why Am I Dead At Sea, you can control anyone and talk to anyone. Each combination of characters results in a completely unique conversation. There are 9 characters you can possess, which means at minimum 72 different interactions in the game (9 x 8), though in practice there are many, many more. Your progress through the game is dictated by how well you understand the people on the ship, and which interactions will move events forward.

  • Meet (and possess) a dynamic cast of characters
    Each person on the ship has a story, and a secret or two. Or three. Or four. They all have their own personalities, their own routines as they move around the ship - even their own unique animations. And as you learn more about them, you learn more about your own death and the forces that caused it.

  • Grow your ghastly powers
    As a ghost, you will be more powerful than you were as a human. You are first able to influence people, jumping into their bodies but leaving them with some autonomy. Later, you will be able to take full control of your host and override their own personalities. You are also able to jump into the very minds of the ship inhabitants, getting a visual representation of their inner thoughts, fears and desires.

Coming to Windows and Mac early 2015. Thank you for your interest and support!

I "why am I dead" played. I thought it was a short game but the plot twists were very good. I believe this will be a good game.

I just played through Why Am I Dead: Rebirth, and I can't wait for this. Definitely gonna be buying it once it comes out.

Almost auto-skipped this in my list with a 'meh, another mystery adventure'... and yes, it's looking like another mystery adventure DONE RIGHT. Glad I stuck around for the whole video. Looking quirky and full of intrigue. Voted up and wishing you all the best with development and greenlight :)

Why am I dead?:Rebirth was awesome and if this one will be as good as rebirth was it will be a blast

If this game is half as good as "Why am I dead?: Rebirth" it will still be a blast. Get this game on Steam!

I played Why am I dead: Rebirth and enjoyed it. I think with some extra time and polish, Why Am I Dead At Sea could be twice as good, and th eorginal was alreayd an intruging experience.
