Death's Gambit is a personal tale set in an epic world that explores the theme of dis-empowerment through the use of immortality. The player faces off against insurmountable odds, dueling it out with bosses that each have a twist to solve, whether it be figuring out how to climb a giant creature, or managing weight on a teetering platform while a ravaging wolf yeti tries to mount your head on a spike. Unique mechanics that involve multiplayer components and statistics encourage persistence, as does an unconventional reward system that keeps track of progress instead of completion. But in this stagnant world driven to the edge of madness, what is there truly left to accomplish?
