Project 86's From December was the inspiration for the title, but I list inspirations for the music.

Seriously, one of these days you could put a lot of these games in a collection and easily pitch them to a publisher to get them in the big stores. You have a real talent for world building and layout, and this game is no exception.


Great job! Beautiful layout and the writing does a lot to help build the world. I particularly like how sacrifices and deals work. 


I'd definitely read a novel about this world if you wrote it. I love sci-fi and dystopian alternate futures and you really laid this whole thing out so well. You give glimpses at the right moment to set interest and tone among the mechanics of the game. The art and layout are perfect, and it makes me sad my gaming group is only 2 for now, because I really want to play it.  



You could probably play with one player and one GM or two players and an oracle for this.

Breathless really leaves very few things up to the GM that can't be handled by group consensus or an Oracle. I don't have unique Oracle tables for Letters from December, but a generic oracle (like the one) or any post-apocalyptic flavored one could do it.


Thank you I'll have to give that a try!

hiya! i've not been able to join the lucky newt jams discord - would you mind messaging me a link to the game for free? thank you! either way your game looks so cool and i hope i can try it soon! // edit: just saw the comments with the link! thank you again :3

i love the design and the concept of this game!! even though it does seem like quite a bit of learning, i think it's a well-built world that's nearly scary to think about. well done!

Okay so that intro was already epic enough but then you said it was partially based on the video game Control which is one of my favs so you definitely had me hooked at that point 👀

Also... just WOW! I (Beth) generally make small games, especially for jams. So when I see something this epic and thought-out and deep and gorgeous, it kinda blows my mind even more than just coming across one. And to see it in the first jam I released myself? Mind-blowing enough to send me into albedo by proxy, myself (if I'd already made a deal which, luckily I haven't lol).

This is phenomenal, AND it narratively leads into another game you made? Goodness that's epic af. Thank you for entering it into the jam!
