Death was the Only Road Out of Town

This city is rotten to the core.
(This city does not exist.)
You can’t remember the last time it wasn’t raining for the last day you spent sober.
(You are asleep.)


Suggested Price: $3.80


Written in collaboration with Alex Roberts.

DEATH WAS THE ONLY ROAD OUT OF TOWN is a psycho-horror pulp noir murder simulator which does some fascinating things with the power dynamic between the players and the GM.

Can you kill your way out of the malevolent dream in which you find yourself trapped?

One page games?

HERE’S THE DEAL: I write one tabletop or live roleplaying game a month. It will be no bigger than one side of A4 paper (that’s one side of letter paper, for you American types) and I will do all the art, layout and design myself in pen.

My games are, in general: short, punchy, well-written and exciting. Over the last six years of writing I’ve become more serious and less silly, so expect to see a mix of tones ranging from introspective and heart-breaking to daft and explosive. I’ll always strive to innovate and offer something original or surprising in each game.
