Happy Halloween, again, gamers! It has been a wonderful spooky year for games this October, and I have one last final treat for your candy bag! All you need to say is Trick-or-Treat!
One Page Asylum is my latest solo RPG using the One Page System and it is FREE TODAY ONLY for Halloween 2019! Those of you who have tried the system will be happy to see the addition of a few new elements for the horror survival theme including backtracking and a Terror Level track (Things you can expect to see in future One Page Cthulhu entries). Here is a little more about One Page Asylum.
What once was rain has turned to icy sleet, running down your cheeks, the back of your neck. Your hair is wet and sticks to your skin, chilling you further against the late October night. Your feet feel frozen standing in the cold mud of the woods. You know you need to find shelter quickly or you’ll certainly die of exposure. Unfortunately, your old clunker of a car broke down miles from the nearest town. Your only hope is to find an isolated farmhouse, barn, or some other building to spend the night and wait out the unexpected storm.
Marching through the woods, you make your way forward, the isolated road vanishing behind you through the thick trees. It feels as if you walk for hours. Your fingers go numb. Your feet burn. Your stomach grumbles for something to eat. Then you see it. Stepping out of the trees into a clearing, you are dwarfed by an enormous building. It looks like it was once a hospital of sorts . . . but now it is abandoned.
Gritting your teeth, you head for the door.
Welcome to One Page Asylum, a stand-alone “one-shot” entry in the One Page series of solitaire role-playing games. Perfect for a plane ride, hotel room, or anywhere else. Based on the same system as One Page Dungeon and One Page Cthulhu, this game uses a randomly generated grid map, creating a creepy labyrinth for your lost and intrepid hero to survive.
