damb you got me there


I feel called out for not adhering to these mechanics enough. Good work on the game and you've got some lovely layout on it.


This is such an in-depth RPG, covering so much ground in just one word. In this game you take on the role of a novelist and your possibilities for creation are endless. I adore the crisp mechanics, too. It really gives you all the rules you need. A+ job on this one!

Thanks! <3 It wouldn't have happened without WE ARE BUT WORMS.
