After the Mind, the World Again
A downloadable game
A collaborative murder mystery TTRPG inspired by the world and premise of Disco Elysium (though you don't have to have played Disco Elysium to enjoy this game!)
This game is "GM-full". There is a single player character (The Detective) and four GMs (the Facets). While The Detective acts in the world and tries to solve the mystery, the Facets both create the world in a GM capacity and bicker in The Detective's mind as characters in their own right.
The mystery is collaborative - no one knows who the murderer is in the beginning, and you'll be creating Evidence and Deductions on the fly based on your creativity and the fiction you build along the way.
A Powered by the Apocalypse game that primarily takes inspiration from Bluebeard's Bride and Everyone is John.
Currently in a playtest version right now, so please do give me feedback on how to improve things once you've given it a shot! I still need to write some examples as well.

I just got the chance to play this today and it's one of the best TTRPGs I've had the chance to play. I usually play as a GM, and usually prefer it, but this got the best of being a player and being a GM without the stress of planning way in advance. I can't wait to play more!
gosh, please tell me about it! also this is such a coincidence, I drew one of your de coloring sketches but hadnt posted it yet
Bro, this game is fucking fantastic. I already had an idea to make a game about Disco Elysium with multiple GM's, but you got it first! So...
1- fuck you for making it first
2- thank you for making it first and even better than I could make!
Can't wait to reunite my friends to play this masterpiece
have you heard of the concept of two cakes? 😜 I'd still love to see yours!regardless - thanks for the compliment and let me know how it goes with your group!
