A Good Day to Die is a short, binary-choice card game made for the Weekly Game Jam (Week 8) - https://itch.io/jam/weekly-game-jam-8. The theme was "reborn".

You play as a wicked man in the last 24 hours of his life, trying desperately to turn things around before he kicks the bucket. With each card that's drawn, another hour passes, so the game only takes a few minutes to complete.

Each card offers you two choices, which will effect your three stats (time, money, and karma). The objective is to maximize your karma before your time reaches zero. At the end of the game, you will be told which animal you were reborn as, depending on your final karma score.


v1.1 - Replaced animal images with higher resolution ones, fixed a couple of spelling errors and small bugs, and added cheeky ending messages. First release for Mac OS, Linux, and Android.

v1.0 - Initial release for game jam.

Interesting game. I got bullet ant. ;-]

I loved the game. I really enjoyed it and I like the way things works. I reborn as a shunk.  

Awesome, glad you had fun :) 

Interesting game. Liked the duality and uncertainty in choices, much like Reigns.

Thanks a lot, I was wondering if someone was going to mention Reigns :) I'm looking forward to adding more stuff and doing further balancing, so I hope you'll check for updates.

I started with Satan and lost 30 karma right away :D

Great game! This choice of black and white is nice, you have good taste.

Thanks, I appreciate it :) Yeah, there's obviously some symbolism in the color scheme, but the time restriction played a part in that choice, too ;)

Haha! Loved it. I went to the poker den and said "Go all in!" lol

The art is very lovely. I like all of the animals and card illustrations.

Thanks! Even though it all works, I still want to go back and add more, including more ending animals that unlock under special conditions (such as the Magpie - that will be earned by hoarding inventory items).
