Wish You Were Here
A downloadable game
Wish You Were Here is a compilation zine of various roleplaying games I designed during 2018 and released to my backers on Patreon. Most of the compiled games were published on the backs of postcards and mailed to recipients, with a few exceptions in short zine format. This will be the first time these games are collected in print.
Many of these games were written to be very short, a necessary evil to fit on the back of a postcard. In Wish You Were Here, each game is getting additional art, bonus content, and author's commentary to give readers a peek into how and why they were made the way they were.
When gearing up for this campaign, I realized I had put too much work on my plate, so I decided to get some other writers to help out. A very cool crew of guest designers are writing supplements to each of these games and are credited below!
