Note for Firefox users: due to an unknown RenpyWeb bug, the web build of our game may or may not work in Firefox. Please use Chrome, or one of the downloadable builds below. We Promise they work fine. Fixed in a later release.

Dead mail refers to mail that is undeliverable as addressed or undeliverable at a forwarding address and cannot be returned to the sender.

This is a game about some mail that the USPS, as well any other sane postal agency, would definitely classify as dead.

We hope you have as much fun playing this little thing as we had making it.

Hello! Glad to hear you had fun with our little game, we had lots of fun making it! We'd have loved to work on the concept and extend the game some more, but we ran out of time. Overall, it was a great experience! Thanks for playing.
