We’re making a game about survival, so death is death. The character you’re playing will just be dead. You can then switch to the viewpoint of one of the other survivors you’ve rescued, and keep playing (without losing your achievements, your base, or your stockpiles), but the character that died isn’t coming back. Whatever unique traits he had and whatever he had on his person… hope you can make it or fake it without him.
