Saw your “Death is but the beginning” list. Emily Short’s Counterfeit Monkey is challenging and long, but death situations are usually played off as hypothetical situations. IF tutorial style games (like Andrew Plotkin’s Dreamhold) tend to make death merciful. If there were a way to sort the games of IFDB by difficulty, that may help in finding a list of merciful death games. Good luck.

Thank you for the suggestions! Yes I love Counterfeit Monkey – very very clever puzzles! – but I was actually looking for puzzles which use death as a means of progressing the story. Like in Endless Nameless, where you have to die to let the story progress.
