In Life's Too Short, you take on the role of a celestial marriage councilor as you're tasked with repairing a rift between two vampires who have dramatically fallen out and confined themselves to their respective coffins...

You'll need to explore the mansion, meet various spooky characters and solve simple puzzles in order to put the mansion back together and mend the rift in the vampires' relationship!

Please note: The game does not have a save function (Because I can't figure it out yet...) but I'm hoping that as you progress and learn the puzzle solutions that if you need to come back you can quickly whip back through...

Also, please be gentle with any bugs that might arise! I'll be adding updates as and when these come up.


- V1.1: Update to the ending music

- V1.2: Small gameplay tweaks
