There are some video games, such as Wizards and Warriors, or more recently, Bioshock and Prey, in which when you die, rather than going back to previous point in time or restarting from a checkpoint with progress lost, you actually come back to life either right on the spot or close by. No actual progress lost either, since every item you have is still on-hand, all killed enemies are dead and all wounded enemies wounded, etc. What should we call this? I think It Is Impossible To Lose sounds pretty good.
