Death's Gambit: Afterlife is a side-scrolling, monster-slaying action RPG that raises you from the dead to serve as an agent of Death in a highly stylized, gothic world of beasts, knights, horrors, undying guardians and more.

Death's Gambit is a hardcore 2D action platformer with rich RPG elements. Master the precise combat, utilizing a wide variety of weapons and abilities to confront the horrors that lurk deep within Siradon. Explore a mysterious and unforgiving world to uncover the true price of immortality. Embrace the challenge of being an agent of Death.

Defeat gruesome enemies and legendary bosses with an arsenal of uniquely powerful weapons and abilities in wickedly challenging battles that demand creative thinking, strategy and precise skills. Scale towering buildings and giant beasts alike with a trusty grappling hook to reach the farthest limits of the realm, and get ready to die – a lot.

Explore Siradon, a vast, unforgiving land of dark forests, medieval ruins, frozen wastes and more, each filled with treasures, secrets and twisted characters that may help or hinder your journey. Death’s Gambit delivers a non-linear adventure; discover multiples routes between areas, gaining access to new surprises with every challenge overcome.

The promise of immortality lies at the heart of Siradon. As Death's right hand, challenge the undying guardians of the realm and endure the eternal struggle to purge their souls. But what reward awaits a faithful servant of Death?


Players should prepare to slash and dodge through their enemies on the go, as Death’s Gambit: Afterlife is launching on Switch with an array of exclusive brand-new content that doubles the size of the game later this year. 

Defeating the immortals is no easy feat, however, today’s new trailer showcases everything that players need to learn and the skills they must master to destroy the source of immortality. With brand new ways to play, storylines to discover and fine-tuning across all aspects of the game, Afterlife will challenge both new and veteran players.

Death’s Gambit: Afterlife adds 10 new levels, 22 new weapons, 100 talents, skills, storylines, cinematics, gameplay enhancements and much more to make it the definitive edition of the game to date.
