Staying true to its name, the freshly released Have a Nice Death is an action-roguelike that's all about hacking and slashing your way through hordes of enemies as a very disgruntled Grim Reaper. Along the way you'll also get a chance to smack down an assortment of bosses that also happen to be previous employees, unlock new items and spells to make the reaping go by easier, and if you are so inclined, adopt a couple of curses to brighten up the day for your scores of subordinates back in the Death Incorporated offices.

What all of this madness looks like in action, that you can get a pretty good idea through the recently posted and rather charming trailer. Have a gander, it's well worth checking out:

According to current estimates, Have a Nice Death will most likely spend about a year in Steam Early Access. Throughout this time the developers will work on adding things like new worlds, enemies, bosses, weapons, difficulty modes, optional challenges, and a similar assortment of new content. So as always with Early Access games, your enjoyment of Have a Nice Death in its current state will heavily depend on how much you're willing to ignore some flaws in favor of helping guide its development moving forward.

Whatever the answer may be, you can learn more about Have a Nice Death, as well as check out some of the player reviews for the current version, over at Steam. Enjoy!
