Releasing a project in July ? Post it here and tell people about it.
We will start a new thread each month. 7-ish days into a new month, the past month's thread will be archived.
They call you the Gentleman Bandit, because no one knows your name. They call you a monster, a villain, a dealer of death. They call you Devil.
But they don’t know you.
Not your Heart, your Poet’s Heart filled with rage or filth or the expansiveness of True Love; not your Heaving Heart, beating in meter, callous or kind or barren.

In Gentleman Bandit, you play the titular rogue ~ a highwayman of the old guard who leaves 13 lines of verse at the scenes of his misdeeds. Through card draws, writing prompts, and dice rolls, you’ll write a narrative poem about your Bandit’s loves, losses, fears, and more.
I've uploaded two games this month so far:
Letter Bearer is free and The Cromlech Archives is available for a minimum price of $2.
In the forest, you can wander and find
Old friends and strange treasures.
In the forest, you can take your time
Before it's taken from you.
Letter Bearer is a short solo role-playing and world-building game in which you carry letters for mighty and regal Powers through the Forest you call home, about the dull work you do, the detours you could make, and the punishments your life costs you before you have a chance to break free.
To play this game you'll need a standard deck of playing cards, a writing implement, and a stack of index cards, among other things.
You’re the ones who watch, take notes, and analyse – detectives, academics, government agents, the like – and you’ve got a highly unusual and most disturbing case on your hands. There are things on these tapes that shouldn’t be real, that can’t be real. Are you prepared to peer beyond the veil? To know that the world is not entirely as it seems? To leave with more questions than answers? You could turn back, but you won’t.
Welcome to the Cromlech Archives.
The Cromlech Archives is a 1-page game for creating fragmented found-footage weird horror stories filled with mystery and fear. It's designed for 2-5 players, though it plays best with 3-4.
To play this game you'll need a standard deck of playing cards, a sheet of paper, and a pen or pencil.
Note: This game based on a subsystem of a larger game that is still in development. You can use it as a stand-alone game, or as a story-creating tool with another game.
