"The ten essays in this collection, plus the illustrations that accompany them, each dwell on death in a distinct way. Some, like Nadia Shammas's recollections of playing Night in the Woods after a suicide attempt, or Ashley Oh's reflections on grief and Persona 5's Futaba, are highly personal. Others, like Sharang Biswas's exploration of death-conscious games and Yussef Cole and Vivian Chan's analysis of gamers' own death anxiety, are classic works of games critcism. Still others, like Kait Tremblay and Mary Kenney's essays, are what we're calling PostMortems: writers' thoughts on death-focused games that they themselves had a hand in creating."
