Every ‘The Mortuary Assistant’ Ending Explained

DarkStone Digital and DreadXP have released their newest game The Mortuary Assistant. After completing your degree in mortuary sciences, you begin an apprenticeship at River Fields Mortuary. However, after being called in to process some bodies you discover something terrifying: a demon has bound itself to you. With the help of your mentor, you must identify the demon and dispel it before it possesses you.

The Mortuary Assistant is not for the faint of heart and players should heed the developers’ disturbing content warning.

Before continuing with this guide, we want to warn you: spoilers are ahead. We recommend playing the game through for the experience, then referring to our guide after.

Correct Body Ending

Listed as one of the “good” endings, this ending is pretty straightforward to achieve compared to the other endings. Players must collect and use only the correct sigils and burn the correct body.

During the end scene, Raymond will offer you a job to continue with River Fields Mortuary. Raymond will also offer the player some pretty good advice: never live in fear. After all, isn’t it every girl’s dream to banish demons?

Normal Ending

To achieve this ending, players will need to follow the same steps as the ‘Correct Body Ending.’ However, this specific ending can only happen once the player follows these steps during a second shift.

The end scene resembles the previous ending with an exception: Raymond will have an extended monologue.

Incorrect Body Ending (Possession)

There’s an extremely high chance that this will be the first ending you get – and it’s fun to get.

To get this ending, you can do a few things to sabotage yourself after completing two bodies.

  • Burn the wrong body
  • Place the wrong sigils on the mark
  • Don’t add reagent

During the ending cutscene, it should start out similarly to the other endings but with a MAJOR difference: Raymond will realize something is wrong. His fears are confirmed: you have been possessed by the demon. The player will brutally kill Raymond and throw him across the room like a ragdoll.

Basement Ending

This ending can be quite tricky if you aren’t careful. Players will need to gain access to the basement to complete this ending. To do so, look out for these steps:

  • In the embalming room, grab the key from the bottom drawer
  • After Raymond calls you, go downstairs
  • When you begin the hallucination sequence, check the foreheads of the corpses to get an access code
  • Use the code to obtain the basement key and enter it

Once the prior steps are completed, use the correct sigils and burn the correct body.

During the cutscene, you’ll learn how morally dubious Raymond is.

Rebecca’s Ending

As part of the “good” endings, players will need to collect the sobriety coins from Rebecca’s apartment and from the cabinet with the ID cards. Later in the game, you will encounter Rebecca’s hanging body. At this point, place the coins in her hands. Alternatively, if you see Rebecca’s dad on a gurney, place the necklace around his neck. Continue gameplay as usual and use the correct sigils and burn the correct body.

The ending scene is bittersweet including Rebecca’s dead father.

Raymond’s Ending

This is the newest ending for Mortuary Assistant that was released with the New Ending Update. With this ending, you can learn more about Raymond and the importance of the demons to him. To get this ending, players will need to put the fuse back in the fuse box in the bathroom and look around the basement. Players will have time to explore the basement and find the new materials without a time limit. Interestingly, this ending teases players that there may be more to come.

Secret Ending One: Careless

This ending will only occur if you don’t find out who is possessed or run out of time. In this cutscene, players will wake up chained to a wall and Raymond will put players in the box. Although this is an unofficial ending, at least you won’t end up in a coffin prison.

Secret Ending Two: Shut Out

You could speedrun yourself to this ending. This unofficial second ending will trigger if you make a random sigil, place the sigils incorrectly, or burn a random body. Depending on the time, you may trigger the Possession or Careless ending instead. In this ending, you wake up in one of the Coffin Containers with Raymond staring disappointingly at you. He will shut the box opening and you get sent to the home screen. But at least you didn’t die, right?

The Mortuary Assistant is now available for  Nintendo Switch and PC via Steam.
