The Folly of Hope

Posted: April 1st, 2015 | Author: | Filed under: Blog | Tags: , , | No Comments »

It’s the first of April, a day normally given over to foolishness. And you know what’s foolish? Hope. Hope, as you and your friends flee through dense undergrowth while Something hunts you down. Hope, while brittle tree limbs whip your skin and exhaustion overcomes your shivering body. As the sunlight fades, so does the faint promise that you might just make it out alive…

Happy April Fool’s Day from ICH games. As a gift, we’ve released a little hack/expansion to our horror survival game There is Something in the Woods.

This hack makes the game marginally less cruel than the original, by giving injured and unhinged characters something to fight for. You can download the .pdf here.

Enjoy!

You’re stranded. It’s a four day journey to the nearest town, and there is something in the woods.

There is Something in the Woods is a a table-top story game of supernatural survival horror for four to six players plus a Director. It’ll probably take around three hours to play and it will be as scary as you make it. If you want to download the .pdf just click on the image of the woods below. WARNING contains swearing.

And now there’s more! You can now make the game a little less cruel using the Folly of Hope expansion/hack.

This game is produced by Index Cards and Hate Games with layout, typecraft and cover art by Zabet Groznaya. If you’ve enjoyed the game then we’d love to hear about it. We’d also love for you to tell your friends about it and give them copies of the game.

Having said that, if you want to support ICH Games in our future creative endeavors then that would be awesome. I’m a storyteller. Erin Snyder is a poet and novelist. It would be great to dedicate more of our time to cool artistic projects. You can enter whatever paypal donation (in British Pound Sterling) you’d like using the “buy now” button below. Not only will we be very grateful, your name will go up on our donor page. Plus, as a patron of ICH Games we’ll keep you informed of which projects your donations are going to fund and if we ever get cool stuff like optional Valentine’s Day rules we’ll make sure you get them first.
