This abstract bullet-hell shooter turns the five stages of grief into literal stages. Play through denial, anger, bargaining, depression and acceptance as a wraithlike entity gunning down waves of foes whose life forces you can collect to power up your musical weaponry.

Before the student team settled on building the game environments around the five stages of grief, they planned on modeling their visuals after the work of iconic ukiyo-e artist Katsushika Hokusai, best known for the famous print “The Great Wave off Kanagawa.”
