Loosely inspired by Paulo Coelho de Souza stories, Rage in Peace seeks to give meaning to death in a “rage game”, where you’re meeting your 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. Rage in Peace follows the exploits of Timmy Malinu, an emotionally numb 27 years old actuary whose greatest desire is to die in the most peaceful way possible: asleep in his pajamas, in the warmth of home, with no drama. When the Grim Reaper shows up to inform Timmy that he will die that night of decapitation, our hero’s only concern is that he goes out with a whimper. Players must help Timmy get home safely, so he can die as he pleases.
“Ever since we prototyped Rage in Peace in 2014 at IndieVsPewDiePie Game Jam, it’s become a labor of love for us,” said Rolling Glory Jam Director Dominikus D Putranto. “We wanted to make a game that was both fun to play and contained a deeper meaning about the human experience. We think Rage in Peace strikes that delicate balance perfectly.”
