A downloadable game


this game includes both a color and a black & white printer-friendly version of both the Player's Guide and Narrator's Guide. due to time constraints, art, layout, and translation will have to wait for later versions.

this game is a submission for the Corazon Bundle jam. it is intended to be a simplified, introductory PbtA-style tabletop RPG for kids.

i will never profit from this game.

powered by the apocalypse games are based on the rules from apocalypse world by meguey and vincent baker. this game takes its greatest influences from osr, the redwall books, and stardew valley. it is a #*dream game.

this game was created on the occupied land of the Duwamish, and dedicated to all people harmed by the violence of national borders. this creator supports returning all lands, ceded and unceded, to the care of Indigenous people, and recognizes the United States as an illegitimate entity, a violence of borders perpetrated against the Indigenous people and wildlife of this continent. no one is illegal on stolen land.
