this is such a cozy game! there's something about being a fly on the wall, in a way, that makes me want to observe and invest myself into everyone's stories. even though we only cross paths for a short time, it's enough for me to hope they'll be ok and wonder if they're happy. thanks to you and mocha for creating this!
A Stop Along the Road
A downloadable solo game
This land is vast and marvelous, full of peril and marvel in equal measure. Adventurers from all corners of it travel great distances to complete grand, dangerous, and splendid quests full of threats and treasure and wonder. There is glory, riches, fame, and splendor to be found—and instead of seeking it, you have settled down.
Now and again, adventurers pass by the home you’ve made for yourself. They are worn, weary, in need of rest and respite. And so you offer your hospitality, freely and warmly, again and again. You are no traveler. You are on no noble, extravagant quest. This is your home, a place you’ve made worth settling down in, but to most people, you’re simply a stop along the road.
A Stop Along the Road is a short (three pages) solo journaling game. Playing as a character who offers their home and hospitality to adventurers passing through, you’ll write journal entries from their perspective. The game will provide instructions and loose prompts, helping to gently guide your storytelling. To play, you’ll need these instructions, a means by which to record your entries (paper and pen, a text document, audio recording tools), and a deck of tarot cards.
The first two pieces of art featured in the game are by the lovely Mocha, and the third by myself.

New copies will be added any time this game is purchased for $5 or more, and also for each rating and comment (and I'll even throw in a bonus couple if you include a link to an actual play)—but please note that this is done manually, so you may have to wait a bit for them to actually appear!
