Why Am I Dead is a retro-style mystery game. You've recently been killed. Play as your disembodied ghost, take over control of other people in the hotel and investigate your own murder.

Use WASD to move around the hotel, press the space bar or Z to possess or de-possess people. Press E to open doors and interact with people. Use the arrow keys or W and S to select an answer if there are multiple options during a conversation.

Hey guys! Actually I've made updates to my game prior to today, but haven't edited the description. Fixed some bugs, including the problems Internet Explorer had with the preloader. Yay! I also implemented medals.

...And I also added some extra content! I had originally cut a lot of stuff out of the game, thinking no one would find it or care anyway. But the feedback I've gotten here motivated me to put some more work into the game, even if it's just a little. I want to give a huge, warm THANK YOU to everyone for your time and attention. :D

UPDATE: 11/18 7:25 PM EST
New version adds a link to a walkthrough in the pause menu, and fixes the unintentionally sadistic placement of the "Return to Main Menu" button.

Thanks to everyone for all of your feedback! I truly appreciate it. This is a really hectic weekend for me, so I've been struggling to react to your feedback as quickly as I'd like to. Thank you for your patience and support.

UPDATE: 11/17 7:30 PM EST
Uploaded a new version which fixes a bug with Morgan's dialogue and prevents the problem that some of you had with the final part of the game.

I believe the problem is fixed now. If it isn't, running it on Firefox/Chrome should work. Thanks for your concern; I would love for you to be able to play this game. :)

For some reason the game does not load! A white bar bellow the advertaisement loads but the recents stay at 0! SOMEONE PLEASE TELL ME WHAT MIGHT BE THE REASON PLEASE!!!


PeltastDesign responds:

Sorry about that! I'm 95% sure I fixed it now. My preloader and Internet Explorer were not getting along very well.

If for some crazy reason it still isn't working, running it in Firefox or Chrome should work.

After about an hour of trying and re-trying combinations, about an hour into the game, I decided that I was finally stuck an decided to look at a walkthrough.

After getting the dirt on the blonde using the old lady, I am supposed to question the blonde with Cricket, (as i have done many many many times at this point) so find out "something big" then go talk to Lucille as Cricket. The walkthrough states that I should accuse Lucille of murder at this point and then end the game in the room where you began.

Lucille's dialogue simply will not trigger.
I have literally done everything in the walkthrough over again just to make sure... several times. It must be a progression bug.
