This week is KiwiRPG Week! An excellent collective of Aotearoa based game designers, players and podcasters have teamed up to do some excellent things this week. If you’re interested in Tabletop RPGs and want to learn about my newest game, read on!
We have a sampler bundle on Itch and DriveThru (my game High School Princess and a small LARP called Quiet Day in the Library are included).
We’ve had some cool international attention as well, including an article on Gizmodo and a mention on GeekNative
The biggest excitement for me is today I launched my new game: Trading Places
Before I get into that, a shout out. My game isn’t the only one launching today, the esteemed Simon Carryer has released a D&D fan edit called Pyramid of the Undying which you should also check out!
Trading Places is a journaling game. It’s an introspective game about ordinary and extraordinary lives, and I’m very proud of it.
It’s about swapping bodies, a la Freaky Friday or the brilliant book The Seven and a Half Deaths of Evelyn Hardcastle. What if one day, you woke up in a body and a life that isn’t your own?
It’s run beautifully in playtests, with one game running full Hallmark Christmas movie, and another game going a lot more poetical and introspective about the nature of life. It’s a game which you can do a lot with, and I expect is only the first of many journaling games from me…
