THERE SWINGS A SKULL: GRIM TIDINGS
A downloadable game for Windows
THERE SWINGS A SKULL
The town of Pareildas stands in the center of a vast desert. Its citizens live their lives quietly. Or, at least, they once did.
In recent days the speaker-gallows sprang, weedlike, in the heart of the town - and since its inception the denizens of Pareildas have been sacrificed, one by one. The electric words that spew from the gallows claim this is to staunch the blistering hatred of the vengeful sun... but the heat has only grown more and more unbearable.
Anatoli works for the town train station. He dreams of leaving Pareildas, so that he might peacefully live out the rest of his life with his husband. His dreams share much in common with the blackened husks of the town's denizens that line the streets.
Pyotr is an independent artist. He hopes, deeply, that he might do something to stop the hellfire slowly consuming Pareildas. But the price of stopping the natural order is immensely steep - and, of course, there's no guarantee this is a natural occurrence at all...

I loved the original, can't wait to play this one!
Any chance of getting a Steam key if we buy the game on itch please? I'd rather buy it on here so you get a bigger cut but would prefer the Steam version to play on a Steam deck.
