New Release: A Cold Survival Mystery

survive, lost in bleak, frozen wilderness

The Cold Dark is a solo journaling game about survival. You play a survivor lost in bleak, frozen wilderness after a storm brought down the plane you were in. Now, with your pilot dead and no one to help you, you must gather every resource you can to simply stay alive.

The Cold Dark is also a horror game. The further you travel—the longer you survive—the clearer it becomes that something is hunting you. Before this night is over, you will have to take a stand against this unseen Beast.

If the cold doesn't kill you, It will.

The Tether Bundle

A duet horror letter writing game with custom designed players journal

Nothing ever happens in this forgotten town. Every day is as predictable as the last, dragging on into eternity. And that made it even more strange when you happened upon the journal. It may have been hidden by the decaying foliage of last season on the forest floor, or washed up on the shore of the stream that leads into the old cave outside of town, but wherever it was that you spotted it, it drew you in.

Tether is a role-playing game for two players that is played through the process of writing journal entries.

The two characters are connected by a journal known as The Tether, which allows them to write notes to each other through time.
