EB's Owen Hibbert writes, "Ray’s The Dead features a gorgeous 2D art style that is a joy to see in action. I really cannot recall the last time an art style wowed me like Ray’s has, and that feels wonderful. The game has a very unique look about it that lends perfectly to its charm, characters are vibrant and laughable and dialogue is well written. Despite the build being over a year old, I still felt that it showed enough of the game for me to judge whether I would like it, and without saying too much, you should definitely hold hopes high for Ray and his undead pals. So what is Ray’s The Dead about exactly?"
