Thanks for the kind words and sharing with us your favorite design bit.
The idea mechanically reflect Bonds among PCs and between PCs and NPCs in the game's design is one of the things we are very proud of in Rise of the Apes!
Hey! Thanks for the kind words. Yeah, character growth is what we are really interested in and so creating a system that reflects this was just something we really like to do. We did something less structured but similar in Hiron and Mariann: Soul Detective.
The chatter is true, we are thinking about a Mech game focusing on the mech pilots and how they learn to be pilots. Let's see where this idea takes us.
Yep, we extended the deadline! Every submission and every new person joining the jam extends the deadline by 1 month or so. We are making this up on the go, so.
Looking forward to see what you come up with!
Hey, no worries. I believe every critique is an opportunity for me to get better and you took the time to be specific and I appreciate this a lot. It is also an honor to hear that some of the scenes were an inspiration for you to take into your future writing.
Thank you for your comment, I appreciate the feedback a lot.
歸妹 - Returning Maiden is one of my first games created for an event to promote and teach about the Intangible Cultural Heritage of China to Chinese youth - the event leader was in fact translating the myths into English and reading the rules for cultural sensitivity - just as she did with 五德 - The Five Powers.
A revamp is actually on the schedule for later this year to address exactly your issues with working out the rules for people unfamiliar with the Element Dice System and streamlining the gameplay.
Thank you again for taking the time to comment and give feedback. I hope you found inspiration in the Element Dice System and what possibilities lay in it.
Hiroin was designed as a Partner Game where one player plays the titular Hiroin and the other player plays the world around Hiroin. But I have played it as a solo game or with a group. If you play with a group you would, however, make sure sure that everyone at the table gets a fair share of input into the story.
Hope this helps
Hey! LUMEN is the system we use for the mechanics of Clean-Up Crew. You can find the System Reference Document (SRD) by Spencer Sample here.
LUMEN is created with the idea of simple rules and fast paced combat in mind. The idea is to bring the power fantasy style of video games like Destiny to your table and it works like a charm. You can easily have combat with waves of monsters that lasts only 1 hours of real time, because it is so simple and quick. Most sessions I played have been between 1 and 1-1/2 hours, but if you want to turn your game into multiple sessions with an overreaching arc, you can easily do that as well.
I love how this game so wonderfully complicated and yet playable! I love the dice arrangement method and the corresponding table - and I love that the result is coded back into letters to form a new sentence!
Longing For Tranquility is currently Name your own price because we wanted everyone to have access to it during the voting period. After voting closes, we will put a price tag on it, because this game kicks ass!
It's the first one-page LUMEN game and we managed to get everything on it - so yeah, playing this game is learning a whole new system!
And based on the overwhelming positive feedback, we did a kick-ass job! Thanks everyone for the love!
This is excellent on so many levels!
- It's excellent to do this through itch,
- it's excellent to get Ashes to Ashes
- and it's excellent to get the Kusarigama!

★★★★★ 5 Stars - would back again!
If you asked yourself the question if you should get MiniBX, let me tell you, that's not a question at all! You should. Period!
MiniBX is such a fresh take on Old School gaming that it would be a shame if you didn't pick it up. If you want to know more, I wrote an entire Hype Post about it on Twitter!
Hi! We are looking into prints, but right now it is hard to say. We do however plan on bringing our custom Element Dice at least to North America. If we can combine that with a print run, that would be ideal - and people that bought the PDF would definitely not have to pay twice!
We will also soon update the game page with a version of the PDF that only shows one page at the time so it's easier to read on a laptop screen.
