A downloadable game for Windows, macOS, and Linux

BEHOLD OUR END.

From the creative director of Sunless Sea and Fallen London: a single-player narrative digital boardgame of apocalypse and yearning. Find abominable rites in dreams. Craft tools and summon spirits. Indoctrinate innocents. Choose between sane and insane victory conditions. Become the herald of a new age.

This was a prologue-prototype of the game, with a fraction of the final content... but it's free. I released it to give people a taster while I went off to write for BioWare and Telltale.

A KICKSTARTER FOR THE FULL GAME IS COMING IN SEPTEMBER 2017. SIGN UP HERE FOR INFORMATION AND FOR WAKING NIGHTMARES.
