The morgue attendant Creator Brian Clarke also weighed in: “Movies have always been the main inspiration for the style of my games. I always try to create a story, dialogue and moments that feel filmic, so an opportunity to complete this project is to make a dream of mine come true”, regarding the adaptation of his creation.

The synopsis for The Mortuary Assistant is as follows:

Undertaker Rebecca Owens thinks her first night on the job will be embalming a surplus of corpses, but she soon learns that a sinister presence resides at River Fields Mortuary.
