In the near future, the world will be changed by a machine that predicts how a person will die with 100% accuracy... but not clarity.

Would knowing your demise change the way you lived your life?

A collection of three short interactive stories.


This game gets a bit darker than most of my other games (but I still inject quite a bit of humour into it), and I'm quite proud of it. I think I could have executed one of the stories better, but overall I think I made a pretty clever game.

Placed 8th in the 2013 Interactive Fiction Competition.

Inspired by the following webcomic by Ryan North:

There are also books based on the concept! And a card game! And other stuff! They're all quite good. For more information, visit

Great game with an impressive eye to writing some great Death Machine stories... loved every play through of the few dozen I tried! :)

I think I found only one "good" ending but also only found one "fated" / "bad" ending along with a number of mediocre endings which seemed easier to get but then that's life, isn't it? :D


“SHOT THROUGH THE HEART BY BON JOVI” fnrvjmeueh beautiful

This game is actually pretty good! I got the old age, looking up, and shot through the heart by Bon Jovi deaths so far. I'm interested in looking for more endings! Great game!!

Super intriguing premise.  I've had the old age and 'looking up' death cards so far.  It looks like this game will have a lot of replay value.
