I have just spent a delightful afternoon with my kids (10 and 12) playing this. we played fast and loose with the rules but as a jumping off point for a wildly imaginative afternoon it was great. They were not interested in the romance but fully embraced the gender options on offer. The house is a lighthouse with a flying shed on a tether. We have pet quails that are bigger on the inside so they can lay massive eggs. The eggs come out a black hole in the quail when no one is looking. Thank you so much for this.
Our Traveling Home
A downloadable game
Our Traveling Home is a game about queer romance, found family, and finding healing through belonging, as inspired by the works of Studio Ghibli, and particularly Howl's Moving Castle. During play, you will tell stories about a collection of oddballs and misfits trying to make their new chosen family work in the face of opposition from the Outside World that is trying to tear them apart. But while the stakes are high, this game will always have a happy ending. The queer romance will resolve happily, and everyone in the family will get to have a happily ever after.
Our Traveling Home is a GMless game for 4 to 5 players that uses simple-but-evocative questions and prompts to help players tell a story inspired by the works of Studio Ghibli’s many movies that feature both otherworldly magic and slice-of-life intimate emotional moments. Our Traveling Home is for people interested in telling stories about happy queer romance and oddballs and misfits finding family with each other. It's also for anyone who is hungry for stories about weirdos flourishing thriving in spite of a society that is trying to break them.
