Life Goes On embraces death in a way that most games don't. Sure, lots of platformers embrace death in the sense that they know that landing the perfect jump will first require a lot of trial and error, but few make you intentionally kill yourself to get across from point A to point B.

Here's the official description of the game:

LifeGoes On is a morbidly lighthearted puzzle-platformer in which you impale, incinerate, freeze, and mangle yourself repeatedly so that fellow knights can use your broken body to surpass dangerous obstacles and grab the holy grail.

You can watch Steve and I play (and sometimes fumble through as we learn) Life Goes On in the video above. The game is out today on Steam.
