An incredible achievement in forged in the dark design in only a handful of pages. It nails the tone of pulpy adventure stories to such a precise degree you'd think that the genre started right here. I am so happy this game exists.
The latest devlog has a pretty good rundown of the changes: https://notwriting.itch.io/a-torch-in-the-dark/devlog/460945/a-torch-in-the-dark...
Whether or not the changes to the encounters are "better" is up for you to decide, but I like how it speeds up play and makes it easier to see all the different encounters on each dungeon spread.
A great way to spend an evening pretending to be yourself with a limited paranormal budget and too much time on your hands. Light on the rules, heavy on the laughs. Ideal for the times your regular crew can't get together to bother goblins. Bother some ghosts instead!
Thank you so much for the kind words and incredible review! I feel like I bit off more than I could chew with the prompts, to be honest. Version 2.1 of the game will be released soon and it has much fewer unique encounter prompts, though I hope it's still just as exciting.
Slugblaster is not just a funny and engaging read. It is not just packed with glitched and cartoony art that fits the tone of the game, and it is not just so well laid out that each page is a pleasure to look at. On top of all of this and more, Slugblaster absolutely nails it's pitch with every part of the game.
There are no wasted words in Slugblaster. There is no page that isn't informative or gorgeous, and no rule that gets in the way of the greater narrative experience. This isn't a game, it's a gift. A gift you should give to yourself and your friends. You won't regret it.
