For Those Who Stay
A downloadable game
This is a pretty small game about being (or lying about being) a visitor from another place, time, reality, or ontological paradigm. It can be played in person or by post. Generally speaking, 3 or more players are recommended. One player takes the role of the Traveler, and the others take on the roles of Judges.
The Traveler claims to come from another time (usually the future) and/or another dimension. This game can also easily be hacked to accommodate aliens, vampires, compassionate conservatives, or other mythical beings. The Traveler’s job is to convince the Judges that they are, in fact, the real deal, usually using nothing but their words (although they may be asked to sketch out the occasional diagram).
The Judges are skeptical, but very badly want to believe. Their job is to interrogate the Traveler in the hopes that the Traveler’s testimony turns out to be convincing enough to hang a hat on. However, they are ultimately after the Truth.
Note: This is an early/ashcan draft of the game. It is provided as-is and at no cost. However, if you appreciate my work, consider tipping me on here or supporting me on patreon at patreon.com/feedthealeks
