Main Story

There was once a perfect city where all things in the land of Space Funeral derive from. This perfect city was would become suddenly corrupted and a great change would affect the entire land. Phillip, along with Leg Horse, set off on a strange and deadly mission to restore this perfect city to the perfection that it once was. On their travels, they find numerous enemies and other strange things to discover the secrets of Space Funeral.


Space Funeral has two canonical fanmade sequels dubbed Space Funeral 2 and Earth Birth, both of which having been dubbed canon by thecatamites.


The Space Funeral soundtrack does not feature original songs, but uses music from various sources. It comprises:

  • "mystery2.mid": plays in the title screen. This is the only song in the game that is part of the default music assets in RPG Maker 2003.
  • White Waking (by Les Rallizes Dénudés): plays in Scum Vullage.
  • Colour Radio (by the BBC Radiophonic Workshop): plays in various overworld locations in the game.
  • One-Eighty-One (by the BBC Radiophonic Workshop): plays during battles.
  • Frontier to Knowledge (by Delia Derbyshire): plays in the Bone Tunnels.
  • Evening Harmony (by Ruth White): plays in boat sequences, including the trip to the Blood Cavern.
  • Spleen (by Ruth White): plays in the first part of the Blood Cavern.
  • The Irremediable (by Ruth White): plays in the second part of the Blood Cavern.
  • My Marie (by Vernon Geyer): plays in the Malice Dig Site.
  • Tamariu (by the BBC Radiophonic Workshop): plays in the Mystery Forest.
  • Beginnings (by Ruth White): plays in the Wastelands.
  • Танец пингвинов / Penguins' Dance (by V. Mescherin's Orchestra, composed by Alexander Kholminov): plays in Dracula's house.

  • Spanish Stroll (by Mink DeVille): credits theme.

In addition, the outro of "7 and 7 is" by rock band Love is used as a battle victory and game over theme, and the "Male Trainer Encounter" theme from Pokémon Red / Blue will play when encountering a Criminal. The appearance of the 20th Century Boy is accompanied by the opening riff of the eponymous song by Marc Bolan.

It is interesting to note that many songs in the soundtrack (namely the works of Ruth White, the BBC Radiophonic Workshop, Vyacheslav Mescherin's Orchestra and Vernon Geyer) have in common that they are early experiments in electronic music and use of synthesizers.
