A game that packs its backstory and mechanics into a single page, and still manage to convey its themes and emotions. You each play a piece of the soul from a recently deceased, and you try to seek atonement from your family. Through dice rolls and conversations, you discover which parts of your soul, if any, find absolution.
A downloadable conversational game
This House is a conversational tabletop micro-RPG for 3-5 players and 1 GM about ghosts, family, and atonement. In it, you play fragments of your deceased soul, infiltrating your own wake in an attempt to find absolution from your family for sins you committed against them while you were alive.
This House is an entry to John Harness’s Takuma Okada’s game jam Emotional Mecha Jam (https://itch.io/jam/sad-mecha-game-jam) by John Harness (https://john-r-harness.itch.io/) and Takuma Okada (https://noroadhome.itch.io/). It technically qualifies as a flesh-mecha game.
This game is still under development so expect radical changes as time progresses!
