dc.description.abstractThis essay is the fruit of open-ended, interview-based research amongst a small group of Maltese, Catholic, and Gen-Z participants which attempts to reflect how Fortnite engages their perception of death. I shall be categorising Fortnite in a new ludological category presenting the fun experience outliving the character's death. This new fourth category is somewhat similar to a Christian understanding of death. Two main theological themes emerge from the data: reincarnation and post-mortem afterlife. These will be theologically engaged within the third part of the essay. Games are theological spaces; thus, a number of practical take-homes are offered in the conclusion.en_GB
