Celebrating Life

Needs to be created

Celebrating Life is an exploration game about remembering memories of loved ones who have passed away. Players collect different objects that represent memories of their family members with the purpose of building an "ofrenda." The game takes place during Day of the Dead (Día de Los Muertos,) a Mexican holiday that is celebrated throughout Mexico, where life and death are celebrated by reuniting both the living and the dead.
