The Yawgh is coming. You have 10 days!

A story with interaction that goes beyond a click and choose interface. You can actually increase the stats of your character in order to make a choice at the "end" of the game when the Yawgh arrives.

The bottom line with this game is that it's meant to be a hot-seat game you play with your friends. It's not really that much fun to play alone since you can see just about every choice in a couple playthroughs. But, with friends it'll take a bit longer to get through.

So, if you like a story that can have some humorous turns or some dramatic fallout from seemingly simple choices, then this might be a fun game for you.

The Yawhg has nice art and story telling. Unfortunately, that's all there is. About 10 minutes worth.

Right when I thought the game was starting, I was "Yeah! The Yawhg is finally here! I'm gonna kick his ♥♥♥!". After I assigned professions to each character, that was it. Ending was generated and credits rolled. That's it.

The whole game plays out like the beginning of a Fallout game. Answer a few questions and gain some stat points.

Your choices do effect the outcome and there are events that destroy locations on the map which is pretty cool. The one map you see on the screen is the only location in the game. After the Yawhg arrives, you assign positions to each character and the game generates an ending for each character based on their previous choices. Fade to black, roll credits.

While I like the art and story telling, there is simply not enough here to justify the price at all. I genuinly feel like I wasted money and I really didn't want to feel that way because I really wanted to like the game. There is simply not enough here.

A very fun little game, get a group of you together via local play or even stream it via Steam and play like that.

It's like an RPGish board game thing but on a computer so it's way easier to play. The writing is clever and funny, and the art is really pretty!

Also a small detail that I really like: it lets some people share controllers in case you don't have four controllers (all turn-based games should do this).
