App Description

In a game, you die.
And imply that it has no effect on you.
You feel invincible in the realm behind the screen.

This one is different.
In this game, you have to die.

Think before you act.
Who knows what it means to die behind the screen?
Is it only a number that goes up?
Pixels that change their intensity?

Solve disturbing, surprising, and malicious puzzles.

Is it possible to go through the game
without dying even once?
Will you aim for it?
