A downloadable game
Venice is not a city.
Venice is a cage, and not a golden one at that - just one you cannot escape from. People dream of leaving its maze to search fortune and a better life elsewhere, but they never truly do that; it's like something is preventing them to flee.
That something are the Old Gods. No one – not even their most powerful servants – know exactly what they are; they only know what they are not - humans. They have inhabited Venice since the very beginning, have grown with it, and now they cannot leave anymore – as everything else unfortunate enough to fall in their grasp. No one who enters will ever leave. They are the city. Or the city is them. They are impossible to entangle now.
This game is about the city and the gods, their relationship, and the effect it has on the humans – both its unsuspecting inhabitants and the willing slaves of its will.
Venezia Tenebrae is a short narrative game set in a dark and hopeless version of the real Venice. The game mechanics are few and easy to learn; there will not be dice to roll - to shape their misty hell how they see fit, the group will only be able to rely on its imagination.
Just a little Halloween experiment I created - hope you will enjoy trying it!
