A downloadable game

HAMLET is a one-letter RPG based on a tweet I made on 19/6/2020. (One-letter RPG is such a simple idea that I am sure other people have thought of before.)

Matthew Gravelyn (@mrmatthew) kindly compiled other one-letter RPGs posted onto the thread: https://docs.google.com/document/d/1OdoUX3cOg1-BRWGI53yDu-7HLlWB9EapiSHW8JHW1Lc/

Inspired by the Business Card Jam and Riverhouse Games's one-word RPG.

Check out my other minimalist RPGs The Dreamer and The Novelist.

If you are not just here to rant, I did write an article on minimalist RPGs and RPGs as poetry.

Could this game B any better?


I don't know if this game can B any better, but I'm pretty sure it can't B any letter.


A wonderfully creative idea and this should be the only clue you need to check out all the other games by Arthur!


This certainly turned out to B excellent!
