How To Say Goodbye is a narrative puzzle game exploring the theme of mourning and loss.

How to say Goodbye tells the story of a character recently turned into a ghost, lost in an unknown world populated by spirits.

In this narrative puzzle game, move the element of decor and the characters to guide the characters out of the liminal space between life and death in which they are trapped. Help them find their friends who are prisoners of a mysterious wizard and accompany them on their journey to the other side.

The goal of each level in How to Say Goodbye is to guide your group of ghosts to the exit, symbolized by a door. To do so, move the scenery on a grid and make your way to the door. But dark forces seem to be holding you back against your will. Lost spirits called spleens will try to prevent you from escaping the liminal space by blocking the way to the door.

But a mysterious wizard is determined to keep them from moving forward...

Inspired by the golden age of children's literature and illustrated books (such as The Moomins by Tove Jansson, The Little Prince by Antoine de Saint-Exupéry, Where The Wild Things Are by Maurice Sendak), How to say Goodbye deals with the theme of grief with kindness and sensitivity.

Still shocked by their recent passing, the ghosts of How to say Goodbye try their best to leave the limbo they are trapped in. Together, they will have to discover how to mourn in order to accept their own death, and “move on”.

How to Say Goodbye is coming to PC (Steam) in 2022.
