Move with the arrow keys. Embrace death.

Press R or backspace to retry a level.

Made in three days for Minijam 72. The theme was "Adventure" and the limitation was "death must be a core mechanic".

Post-jam updates
  • Added quality settings as the game was lagging quite heavily on low-end laptops
  • Performance improvements
  • Android build
  • Arrow holes are easier to see
  • New look for menu and credits screens

Hello! I'll be playing Dead Heroes Don't Cry tomorrow on stream along with several other games from the Mini Jam #72 at 3:30pm EST. I'll be talking about any interesting design decisions as I play, and suggesting improvements if any come to mind. Please feel free to join me live, it'll be extra fun to chat together about your game while playing it :)
