It's only you now. You've been running for what seems like an eternity and it's become dead quiet

The Dark is a solo tabletop roleplaying game about being lost in a darkness that seeks to overtake you, and your desperate clinging to the memories of those you loved.

You’ll play as the last remaining of a group of friends who set out for adventure in the wilderness in Scandinavia. All was well until the path was lost in the midst of a dense forest, one by one your friends were taken by an encroaching preternatural darkness.

Try as you might you cannot seem to escape the tendrils of The Dark. However, you’ll soon discover that the memories of your friends, and that of a love long gone, anchors you; ever so tangibly to the real world.

The Dark might consume you, but you’ll never be snuffed out without remembering those you love.

You’ll play this game using candles, a deck of cards, and dice as you fight to remain anchored to this world.

Exploring the relationships between my character and their loved ones took center stage, while horrors in the background nibbled at the corners. A vignette of darkness blurring the lines between memory and reality.

– Reilly Qyote, Afterthought Committee

The Dark is a swan song for characters you’ve just met. Write broken people, and relish in their struggle.

– Jimble, Sludgefunk

The Dark has you looking over your shoulder, as you’re asked to take a descent in the unknown and emotional catharsis.

– NL Morrison, Print Weaver

Never has a solo game so perfectly captured the sense of isolation the genre demands. Lose yourself in The Dark.

– Tony from Plus One

The Dark is a truly immersive experience, beyond the horrors of what could be in the woods, it quite elegantly demonstrates that the most scary thing is being alone with your own thoughts and reflections.

– Thom Owen, Dice Maven
