Common theme of the games below is darkness. Dark mysterious atmosphere is always welcome in games. You can really vibe with it.
Hell, heaven, limbo, and generally afterlife themed games:
1. Grim Fandango
3. Murdered: Soul Suspect
Soul suspect is an RPG featuring the story of a dead detective trying to solve murders even in afterlife!
4. Hotel Afterlife
5. Have a Nice Death
6. Before Your Eyes
The game follows the story of the recently deceased Benjamin Brynn on his way to the afterlife. The player must interact with Brynn’s memories through an eye-tracking webcam to progress, as the game reads and responds to the player’s eye movement and blinking. The game’s narrative was well received by critics; however, the functionality of its eye-tracking feature received criticism.
7. Wraith: The Oblivion VR
Yes, Valheim indeed set in the afterlife. As a matter of fact, Valheim is the Viking purgatory for the Forsaken. I didn’t know about this when I played Valheim. It all makes sense now.
9. The Grim and I
Set in the underworld.
Spiritfarer is a game where you talk to dead people and try to help them finish their unfinished business. Sounds similar to what you’re after, and is supposedly excellent to boot. (I have not played it myself).
