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

All other assets made by me during the jam.

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 :)


Hey, sounds fun :) I’ll be there!
