Game: Mort The Intern
Platform: PC (Desura, DRM-free, Steam Greenlight)

Remember the first job you had? Remember how much it sucked? As it turns out, it’s no different in the after life. Mort interns for the premiere company that handles all your afterlife residential needs. But, as can be expected with any sort of interning job, that also means he has to do all the menial work that no one else wants; nothing interesting ever comes his one. This completely changes one day when a clerical error is discovered that caused a number of souls to be sent to their wrong afterlife destination. Mort’s boss, wanting to sort this out as quickly and quietly as he can, sends Mort out into the rough terrain of the afterlife to track down the misplaced souls. Could this be the big break Mort is looking for?
