A downloadable game for Windows and Android

Does chewing loudly justify sending someone to hell? What about leaving passive-aggressive Post-It notes for your flatmates? 

Swipe left and right to decide who goes to which afterlife. Careful though -- send souls to the wrong place and heaven and hell will begin to run out of space as management on either side slows down to deal with the incorrect entries. Also, you'll get some pretty rude texts from the custodians on either side.

Grimder is a Ludum Dare gamejam play on dating apps. With the theme “running out of space” we came up with the idea that Heaven and Hell have a capacity limit which fills up quickly if the wrong people are assigned to each place. You play as Death, swiping left and right to send characters to hell or heaven based on their traits. It was our team's first LD game -- we took it chill and had a lot of fun, putting in about 5 hours per person per day.

This game was super cathartic to make, as most of the things that send people to hell are actually just our own pet peeves. Thanks also to our mates on Twitter that supplied us with a bunch of ideas for virtues and vices! You can find the thread here: https://twitter.com/callioperyder/status/1028142046727483392

is it a "peace death" clone or it has more content?

WHERE WILL YOU GO? 

It's probably the STUPIDEST FUNNIEST THING you've seen today. Introducing ROOST or ROAST. A game show i made based on this game. XD Enjoy

that poor doggo was a good doggo

I had a lot of fun going through Grimder. Was fun and actually found myself having to really think of a few options! Great job dev!

So many stupid deaths! Good little game, had a weird bug where different lighter text would appear on the screen but otherwise no problems!


Playing as a grim reaper and trying to match to either place is a cool idea! It is neat to see if you get a match if you get it right  or when you get a text if you make a mistake. Even though there’s no music, the grim reaper groans in the background and sometimes makes comments. Thanks for making this game! 

Hi! Thanks for making this game, I made you a video

Who knew the Grim Reaper liked Tinder!?

Like Tinder but Less Grim


An interesting idea. It was hard to find the correct one. But it was funny nonetheless

LOVE THIS GAME

I made a little vid of this game. I don't think I am necessarily the best at it, definitely not haha, but I still really enjoyed it. Good job. 

I thought it was enjoyable but, a few things would have been nicer such as, back ground music. I suppose I could of added my own but, would have just been nice to have it already in the game. More Grim Reaper commentary would of helped too. Him just going hmmm and, uhhhh wasn't too engaging. Like I said this is a good game borrows elements from papers please and, other good vs bad games but, throws in some added comedy.

Hey! Played a bit of this on my channel! All I can say for certain is that all dogs go to heaven. :P

Hello! I really enjoyed the game, and the overall idea of it is pretty neat. Even with a lack of music and the constant sighing in the background the game was great and fun! I can't wait to see more! 

Hi ! I really like the concept of this game. Do you think that you will make a version for MAC someday ? 

Hilarious, well-executed concept. Great game to kill time with!

Neat little game. Loved the different causes of death

Awesome game, but with how annoying it is to swipe on PC you should allow the arrow keys to swipe, also the reaper's sighs get very annoying.

Really enjoyed this game! So simple yet so fun! Did a lets play, check it out if you like! But try this game! Its to die for!! 

Hi! Can you post the link to your LD42 entry? Awesome game! Thanks!
