If you run into any bugs or technical issues please let us know by posting here! Posting in this thread helps us better manage bugs. Thank you!

The soundtrack is still in "preorder" status... any idea when it will be available?

Developer

Hey! We just set the soundtrack live, so you should be able to access it now. We're so sorry about that!

I came across a minor bug with text/NPC highlighting: when you click on NPCs to hear their dialogue, Charlotte makes her way to them. If, during this transit time, the curser hovers over another NPC group when the dialogue begins, the 2nd group will remain highlighted during the 1st group's dialogue. I was able to replicate it (see screens below.) Nothing major, but thought I would report it since it may be an easy fix.

P.s. - Thanks for the thought-provoking and unique game! I've been excited to try it since seeing it at the CGSA conference earlier this year. (possible spoilers) I also enjoyed capitalism as an antagonist (and Chad - of course his name was Chad haha. We get a bad wrap!) Did not expect that angle and how it may impact the way we deal with death.

Thanks for letting us know about this bug! We'll look into it ASAP.

And thank you for the kind words about the game <3

My laptop completely froze when I got to the level 3 or cremating level of the woman with breast cancer.

Hey Rpermenter112! Thanks for letting us know about this issue. Would it be alright if you give us a bit of information to help us debug the issue? 

1) Which store did you purchase the game from (Steam/Humble or itch.io)?
2) Are you playing on Windows or Mac?
3) If you're playing on Windows, is your operating system 32 bit or 64 bit? This will be shown in System Settings which you can find by searching in the start menu.
4) Does the game ever crash or does it just stay frozen?
3) If the game does crash (and sometimes if it doesn't) could you post your crash log? This link will show you where you can find your Player log files
4) Could you send me your savedata and options files? You can find your save data at: C:\Users\<username>\AppData\LocalLow\Laundry Bear Games\A Mortician's Tale and send it to us via support@laundrybear.com

Hopefully we can get this sorted quickly!

I can't seem to purchase it using my paypal.

Developer

Hey there! Other Paypal purchases seem to be going through with no issues. If it's not working for you, it might be worth contacting Paypal!

Getting this error when trying to open the game for the first time

I'm using windows 10 (64 bits), and my resolution is 1366x768

Edit: that was the 64 bit version, the x86 version worked for me, thank you for this amazing game =)


Developer

Ayyyy, we're glad to hear the x86 version is working for you! Thanks for playing :)

Hi! Really excited about this game, but neither PC versions seems to be running? I keep getting a "couldn't switch PC resolution" Error message!

Developer

Hey astrolingus! Thanks for letting us know about this issue. Would it be alright if you give us a bit of information to help us debug the issue? 

1) What resolution is your monitor?
2) Is your operating system 32 bit or 64 bit? This will be shown in System Settings which you can find by searching in the start menu.
3) Could you send me your savedata and options files? You can find your save data at: C:\Users\<username>\AppData\LocalLow\Laundry Bear Games\A Mortician's Tale and send it to us via support@laundrybear.com

Hopefully we can get this sorted quickly!

Thanks for the prompt reply! 

1)  1920 x 1080

2) 64 bit

3) On it!

Gonna post this here for anyone else who might be experiencing the same issue!

Try right clicking on the executable > Properties > Compatibility > Check ON "Disable fullscreen optimizations"

Hello! I'm unfortunately totally unable to play : _ (    Below is a video of what I see when I boot the game. This video isn't the first time launching the game but shows exactly what happened the first time. I selected options from the menu, the game started and the menu glitch thing happened. This repeats everytime I launch the game now and is the same regardless of which menu option I choose. I've tried both 64 and 32 versions. I've uninstalled and reinstalled, though I guess the game is saving data elsewhere I can't find. Running on Windows 10, from the Itch app.

Developer

Thanks for letting us know, Ben! We'll have a look into this right away.

Developer

Gonna post this here for anyone having the same issue!: 

It turns out this bug is a result of there being an additional device plugged into the computer (a controller, tablet, or otherwise) while playing. The game isn't designed to work with a controller and bugs out with the additional input. 

We're going to release a fix for this ASAP, but in the meantime if you're experiencing this issue you can try unplugging any controllers that may be attached to your computer before playing!
