A downloadable horror game

You are running. Escaping, stumbling on your own legs. Your short breaths are labored, shaky.

Something is after you. You don't know what it is, 

but you know it won't quit. Your life is at stake.

You feel that it is close, as if a claw is 

sliding down the back of your neck.

And you know you must not look back...

Run!

============================

Run! is a solo narrative game inspired by the slasher horror movie genre. You play as a survivor of a nefarious attack, and you are being chased by... something. Whatever that is, it is relentless and it wants you dead. Throughout 16 scenes, you play to collect Memories to try and piece together what is happening while you run for your life and try not to run out of Breath.



The game uses a standard deck of cards and a customized system that pushes the story forward while revealing dark and mysterious aspects of the events, the stalker, and yourself.






============================

CORE PREMISES

  • Card-driven gameplay. You only need a standard deck of cards, the game sheet, pencil and eraser.
  • Narrative-driven gameplay. Mechanics push forward the slasher horror genre, connecting you—the protagonist—to the events that led to this persecution.
  • Structured gameplay. Scene framing, conflict resolution, and outcome. You have freedom to envision the scenes as your imagination wishes, and the game mechanics provides you with a solid framework so you always know what to do next.

An excellent little solo game that perfectly emulates the feel of slasher movies, with a lot of freedom on how realistic or horrific one wants to make things.

Mechanics are simple and effective and the large number of keywords and prompts is a great help to turn a session into something easy and pleasing!

All that in only 30 pages, Run! is really quite a neat package and Cezar a designer you should definitely follow!

That is super kind of you to say, thank you so much!
