Can someone confirm that for me? I'm pretty sure that's the case.

whatever entries is about dying, and many of them explain that you need items (or people!) to survive the game.
I had to play it twice the first time I played. I think, because I forgot a item that I needed later on. But I died a couple of times. Some times on purpose.
