The Yawhg Revisited


The Yawhg is a game I made last year with Damian Sommer, as part of the Comics Vs Games jam that was going on during TCAF. I spoke about it back then and I think showed some artwork from it, harbouring some vague plans of eventually posting more -- and then of course forgot to entirely. I wanted to rectify that now and show some screens and artwork from the game (just as a note, there's no place/no plans to play this online at present).

This was a four person game that consisted of six turns, each one representing a week in the game world. Each turn a player could choose a location on the map, then choose from one of two options of what to spend that week doing. Damian is amazing and did so much writing for this, including random events tailored to each location (which I do enjoy a whole lot). Below is a sampling of world maps, events, locations, endings, etc! click to enlarge, as ever.
