A little role-playing game that's adapted from a Sokopop video game where you apparently play a young girl climbing a mountain that becomes more and more labyrinthine and psychedelic. The game is very nice and even if I'd prefer a more poetic and flexible vision, it is still tempting!
Knots in the Sky
A downloadable game
Knots in the Sky is a quiet, surreal game about a floating labyrinth and a traveller that have waited a long time to find each other. This tabletop role-playing game is designed to be played in a single hour-long session.
- 40-60 minutes
- 2 players
- No dice
- No prep
The download for this game is a fully illustrated 5-page PDF file with instructions to play.
The rules contain two one-page playbooks: The Traveller and The Labyrinth. While neither role is a traditional "game master," players looking to describe environments, obstacles and architectural histories may prefer to play as The Labyrinth. No dice, cards, or notes are required, though you'll need a copy of your playbook in front of you for reference during play.
Free Community Copies are available below.
