You take turns as each character in the game, so everyone is at the center of the fiction. The decisions you make throughout the game lead to a unique and memorable collapse of a civilization.
Even though you fail to save your world, the story you tell of its destruction will remain forever.
The game works in any kind of setting, from mythical fantasy to the real world to high-flying science fiction. It’s made to tell a whole story in a single 2-4 hour session and doesn’t require preparation, dice, or a GM.
