THRU-HIKER: A Journaling Game of Long-Distance Hiking coming to Kickstarter for #ZineQuest 3

February is around the corner and that means Zine Quest is here again. What is Zine Quest, you ask? Here’s the lowdown from Kickstarter:

Our annual Zine Quest prompt bestows creators with this valiant mission: Bring your RPG to life with maps, adventures, monsters, comics, articles, and interviews. To participate, launch a two-week project for a single-color unbound, folded, stapled, or saddle-stitched RPG zine on A5 or smaller paper.

For 2020 I created The Ioun Codex, and for 2021, I am bringing a brand-new game that I am super excited about.

THRU-HIKER is a journaling game telling stories of being on a long-distance hike. Using your favorite writing instrument, a deck of playing cards, and a set of writing prompts called Oracles, you will tell the story of your thru-hiker on their journey. It’s an easy game to learn and play, and should appeal to experienced gamers, writers, and hiking enthusiasts alike.

The book is written, and I’m 75% done with the layout, which means backers will get their books and PDFs with very little delay after the campaign ends. I’m also making stickers (below) and have a couple of neat stretch goals in mind just in case.

I hope you’ll join me on this new project and help me make this game a reality!
