"My scythe, I like to keep it next to where my heart used to be" - The item's description

The scythe is the most important item in the game and one of Manny's most valuable belongings.

Appearance Edit

The scythe looks like a tradional scythe at first sight. What sets it apart from a real-life scythe is its collapsible shaft and retractable blade which makes it easily portable.

Role in game Edit

The scythe is part of the standard equipment of each salesman working for the Department of Death. It is used to cut open the hulls of newly deceased souls.

Over the years, Manny grew attached to his scythe, so he takes it everywhere he goes keeping it next to where his heart used to be. As a consequence, it is the first item in the inventory and the only item that is present in each year.

It is by far the most useful item in the game. Manny can use it to cut things, retrieve objects and can even use it as a weapon. The player will often have to think of creative ways to use it in order to progress in the game.
