Morton’s Mortality

 

Morton’s Mortality was a game created in 2011 by Team FriendsWithBenefits for the SA Game Dev Challenge VI. Play it here!

I was asked to create both music and art for the game, including all of the character sprites, backgrounds, furniture sprites, and user interface.

The theme for the competition was “death and taxes”, so the game follows the trials and tribulations of Morton, who, depressed with his life as an auditor, decides to kill himself in the most impressive way possible.

Morton’s Mortality placed 6th (out of 42) in the competition, and received generally good marks from the judges in art and sound.

The music and sound effects were created using FamiTracker, and the art was created using Adobe Photoshop and various other free pixel art software.
