The Bloody Burn

Here’s a finished game.

The Bloody Burn (PDF) was a planned, designed and written in 24 hours for the Little Game Chef competition that ran on Story Games in March-April 2009. It has not to my knowledge been played or playtested.

I’m pretty happy with the game. I think it works, for a start. Feedback was strong, though I agree the game needs to push the players into conversation and confession more. For me, as an experiment with¬† jeepform, it was enjoyable.

Influences included Jeepform games like A Flower for Mara, marathon viewings of Still Game, and a lingering feeling that there aren’t enough RPGs about old people. Which is why I also wrote kalma.
