The two of you enter the shrine together. Only one of you will leave. Such is the ritual. Such is the path to restoring peace with your community. Something must transform. Uncover your past, find your present, choose your future. What soured the relationship with your people, during your training as a Bard? How will you move forward with your life, and reintegrate your story? How do you feel about the Other who is in here with you? Who will walk out of the shrine?
Originally created during the 2020 Global Game Jam, a narrative game about confronting yourself, your past, and your community, and choosing how -- or if -- you will return to your society. Stories and Smoke is a part of the Flowforged universe crafted by Lucas Johnson; Silverstring Media's Founder, Studio Director, and World Builder extraordinaire. Other installments of Flowforged Universe include Azrael's Stop, Narthex, and Flow Weaver VR.
