THIS GAME WAS ON KICKSTARTER! Thank you to the 338 people who brought every one of our Stretch Goals to life. I am working to fulfill your rewards at the moment! If you backed at the PDF+ level you should have a PDF download key in a backer message. If you backed at the physical level I will be printing and shipping your zines as soon as Kickstarter transfers the funds!

"some of the most beautiful, poetic game design you can get, a super fun looking story game of a roguelike, AND it's freaking gorgeous." - Brandon Leon-Gambetta, game designer & podcaster.

This is a roleplaying game for four players and no GM. Each room of this dungeon is different and has its own rules. Each of us crawling this dungeon is different and has our own rules. This is a kaleidoscopic game of an increasingly complicated dungeon from which there is no escape, and what happens to us as we die within its walls.

We are bone and feathers and we will never escape and we want to escape. We want to fly. The treasure at the end of the dungeon is an escape from this dungeon. We will never escape from this dungeon. We are bones and feathers and hope and magic and we will never escape from this dungeon. We want to fly out of here on our busted wings and feel the air on our faces turned up towards the sun, but each room of the dungeon is the same and each room of the dungeon brings something new and we will never escape from this dungeon.

Each room of this dungeon unlocks more of this dungeon. There are five rooms in this dungeon, and there are many rooms more than five in this dungeon. We have each died in one of the rooms in this dungeon, and we will each die many times more in each of the rooms of this dungeon. Each room of this dungeon is different but each room of this dungeon is the same, only growing larger with each time we enter each room of this dungeon. As we crawl we repeat, the cycle is always the same and we have different faces, the guardians are different beasts, the traps are different traps, the deaths are different deaths, and the treasure is always the same. The treasure at the end of this dungeon is an escape from this dungeon and we will never escape from this dungeon.

I think something went wrong  is it supposed to be $560.00?

Yes! I am kickstarting the game starting 2/29 and the price here is an incentive to get the game through the Kickstarter. There is a link and explanation in the game’s description.
