Toge Productions released their story-driven comic platformer yesterday, titled Rage in Peace. It follows the story of Timmy Malinu, who simply wants to die in the most peaceful way possible: asleep in his pajamas, in the comfort of his own home. However, the Grim Reaper appears to inform him he’ll die that day via decapitation. Timmy’s only concern is that he goes quick and painlessly, but the universe isn’t out to let that happen. The goal is to get Timmy home safely, so he can die as he wants to.
Loosely inspired by Paulo Coelho de Souza stories, Rage in Peace wants to give meaning to death in a “rage game” where players meet their maker every few seconds. Despite its preoccupation with shedding one’s mortal coil, Rage in Peace is an upbeat, comical game with warm humor and bright colors brought to life by more than 11 independent Indonesian bands, as both Toge and Rolling Glory Jam are dedicated in showcasing the best of Indonesian entertainment culture.
“Our four-year development journey has reached its climax and we are so excited to finally release Rage in Peace worldwide,” said Rolling Glory Jam Director Dominikus D Putranto. “The game combines fun and intuitive platforming mechanics with deep, comical narrative experience with the purpose of creating discussions surrounding the meaning of work, life and death and to remind gamers of their own mortality in a non-scary way.”
