Putting the fun back funeral.

The Mortuary Assistant may be the latest gaming to be obtaining the big screen treatment.

The indie horror – which includes been a big success because it launched at the start of August – was reportedly plucked for an adaptation prior to the full game released earlier this month.

“Movies will always be the primary inspiration for the design of my games,” said Brian Clarke, who created The Mortuary Assistant (thanks, PC Gamer). “I’m always attempting to create story, dialogue, and moments that feel filmic. A chance to bring this project back to where it started is creating a imagine mine possible.”

Ted Hentschke, who’s publisher DreadXP’s head of production, says that as it’s “very difficult to reflect mechanics in film, and the replay is more a mechanical device that people utilise in the narrative when compared to a strict narrative device”, the film will “focus more on the entire narrative and the themes of the overall game and weave that five-part story into one”.
