Death is not normally a job for a temp. We’d like to think the position is being filled by someone with more experience, considering the delicate nature of the work. Flipping Death will test that hypothesis, and, this August, it’s your chance to prove you have what it takes.
The main character in Flipping Death is Penny. She discovers she’s dead, and she will be working as death for a while. It’s seems like a customer service job with a lot of problems. Everyone has some unfinished business that requires her help. Fortunately, she can flip between the worlds of the dead and the living to resolve these issues.
It sounds like a lot of work for very little pay, but the powers are nice. You can flip between the worlds, and you can control the living with a little mind reading. As far as jobs go, it’s probably better than afterlife retail, and the puzzles you solve will hopefully bring you closer to understanding how you died.
Flipping Death is from the same people who made Stick It To the Man, and it carries over the same art style. We dug up a trailer for the game, and it is for the Switch. We imagine the visual quality will at least be similar, so please ignore the branding. (This is sooooo embarassing.)
Flipping Death will be available digitally on the PS4 in August, but there will be a retail version later. It will have physical goodies. That’s a nice touch. We also like knowing it’s coming, even if we don’t know what the goodies are.
Are you tempted by games that have physical goodies, or are you a digital only gamer? Have you had a worse job than being Death? Let us know either or both in the comments.

Jason became terminally addicted to videogames after receiving the NES at an early age. This addiction grew to include PC gaming and was cemented with the launch of the PS2. From then on, he was afflicted with epic RPGs, tense shooters, and deep strategy games, never becoming skillful, but never able to quit. He continues to play games (poorly) and share his passion for them to anyone willing to listen.
