Influenced by cultures from across the world, DE-EXIT invites players to explore the importance of life, death, and the afterlife. In the Plane of Memory, players will uncover secrets beyond the veil and find out what awaits beyond. Embark on a heartwarming ode to life, encounter friends to guide you along the journey, and evade loose-jointed foes that wish to stop you in your tracks. Traverse harsh and cold environments, and find comfort in the warmth of the Nexus — the last safe haven. 

With a focus on single-player cinematic story-telling, DE-EXIT will challenge players to hone their skills in stealth and analyze their surroundings to solve puzzles in order to avoid the undead skeletons that occupy the world. Although players enter the world as a mere skeleton, they will soon find themselves a savior, decorated in armor that signifies their journey through the afterlife.

Gameplay Features:

Surreal Cinematic Experience - DE-EXIT adopts a minimalistic voxel aesthetic to paint a vibrant picture of an afterlife, further enhanced by cinematographic design, motion capture animation, and realistic VFX

  • Ponder Death, Loss, and Memory - Take on the role of a recently departed soul and experience a story that isn’t afraid to ask questions about loss and what lies beyond our mortal existence
  • Intricate Friends and Foes - Create connections with complex characters experiencing unique stories, and navigating diverse motivations. Adventure alongside them or face them in combat as you seek to save the Plane of Memory
  • Interactive storytelling - Seek out pieces of lore, experience thrilling action scenes and stealth, and solve puzzles to unravel the shroud of mystery resting on this otherworldly realm
Death is so often depicted negatively in the media, and we wanted to offer a new insight on the matter and to invite players to view death from a perspective that is not explored as often. The development of DE-EXIT - Eternal Matters has been shaped by people from various backgrounds and cultures, and we hope players will see and appreciate this throughout the story. We hope players will love DE-EXIT as much as we loved creating it.” ​

- Julien Gatumel Fernandez, Narrative Designer at SandBloom Studios
