Hey I'm Adam. I'm a tabletop game designer out of Pennsylvania (USA). I like to make games to explore the lens through which I see the world, and aim to do so both mechanically and narratively. Here's an overview of some of my main work.
No Stone Unturned is a gmless game about adventuring in a world after collapse. It's great for short campaigns with sessions packed full of building a settlement, considering your environmental impact, and thinking about your feelings.
My Brain is a Stick of Butter is a single player rpg that should take about 20 minutes or so to play as you explore what it's like to live a week with ADHD. Good luck finishing all your chores, getting your work done, maintaining your relationships, and finding time for yourself. It might not be fun, but it's probably informative!
Usurping Death is a two player game set in the Necronautilus Universe. One player plays the blind god Death, and the other a mortal seeking to mend their discontent. As the game goes on, Death will be manipulating the world represented by a shared board, and the mortal will be on a journey of self discovery. Eventually they will figure out what their ultimate goal is and try to confront Death itself.
Reliance is a game of doing the work required to build a better society after a bloody revolution. Play members of the revolutionary party as they grapple with the contradictions of their world. The game is currently in a preorder crowdfund stage here on itch; any support is really appreciated.
This is my on-hold youtube series in which I walk through my design process for a new game. I'm trying to make a big, gmful game and it's going pretty well! The first episode is in the itch page and the rest can be found in the dev logs or even just hop over to the youtube playlist and subscribe.
Grasping Nettles was recently kickstarter as a part of zinequest 3. It's a worldbuilding game for 1-6 players where you learn about a community over the course of generations. You can preorder for a physical copy by following that link, or hang out here until I release the pdf!
if destroyed still true asks you to consider the extent of your online life and how it'd be nice to destroy it. definitely at least watch the video of me playing it.
