ooh wow this made me think of the stories we think about to overlay the things we do when working. it's funny cause in my presenter job i always think about/ pretend I'm giving a bunch of candies to kids and now I wonder if I can write a game about the kids i interact w (in this liminal space) and if i could pretend stuff happens to them in between sections of presentation
THIS MADE ME SURELY EMOTIONAL. I DON'T EVEN CROCHET. BUT I do make those tiny like friendship bracelet thing when i was younger, made rosaries with my grandmother, so i really do get how like rhythmic and prayerful it can be to make something. this is just GOOD THANKYOU
Thank you! I do want to dare myself to do this (during session zero) definitely a small group of 2-3 people. I think the strangers is an essential part. Cause they help you believe that you have power over those words, you named the character right? Like choice wise you’re in control, and hopefully the game this is modded with is good enough to be distracting/transformative
"6 - deep down hates politics"
1-3 - Open up your social media of choice & scroll until you find the 1st major political topic
4-5 - Ask a family member or friend (in person or via text) what topic they hate hearing about" MADe ME LAUGH

I like the war idea. But what if you are a thorny plant and the struggling writer energy must be part of your form. But yes, not more than necessary that must be - edited out. Thank you also! you're welcome
OHOH!!!! I See the kabbalah references. I, too, like goblins, work best in 3s.
"3. Ask a question of the universe. Be sure to use a voice suitable for conversing with the universe: expansive, important, confident." MADE ME LAUGH SO MUCH. I kinda like prompting authoritative voices when stepping into divinatory or higher-order states in- or out of games. Oh i like this so much. You're making me want to do this for i-ching
Wish you got this in #notagame game jam! There's some Real Ass Magick going on over there. Games as method/education/instruction are super fascinating to me, cause games just feel more involved. Wish you luck on your pathfinding!
I have an immense bias for dream themes as someone who has, vivid and recurring dreams constantly. I also love narrative games that have a format within themselves that further expresses their themes and purposes.
So the mere use of a chorus and evoking such simple but deep names for each of the four is so powerful! I’m always fascinated by the multiplicity of narrators and voices in games that encourage following <one> character. Thankyou for making this game. Malinche is an intriguing protagonist
