I'll start off on a positive, I think this is a really cool idea, as soon as I heard about it I started thinking about how I could run it.
This however is the only good point. The rules are awful and very badly explained with hardly any examples. There is little to no background and what there is is very vague, for example there are rules for electing leaders within the PC's but there is no explanation of how the leadership is enforced by the owners of "The Farm".

If you've read the blurb about this game then you've already got everything of value from it, if you like the basic idea you'll be better off developing it yourself for whatever system you prefer.

I know it's only $3 but all you're getting for this is a half assed set of rules and a basic pitch for an adventure.

This is a game where a review would spoil alot about the concept. The fun of this game is reading it for the first time. It has a unique and clever premise along w/ it being horrific. Now as the premise seems playable, it's not due to the lack of information provided in the game. I know the game is only $5, but this is a game that should either be a free download w/ some content taken out, or (my opinion) a larger download (maybe $8 w/ twice the page count) w/ alot more info on .... well, everything. When I say everything, it is not because I'm giving a shot but because it has alot of areas where one is reading it wishing there was more info so one could actually run a cool scenario/campaign.


LIKED: The central idea and mechanics as is so far. The creepiness/horrific atmosphere.

DISLIKED: Not really playable at this point. I'm sure good GM's could do it, but I think more info could have alot more GM's out there running it in the vain creepiness it's supposed to be run in.

QUALITY: Acceptable

VALUE: Satisfied

Very creepy atmosphere and some very good ideas, but the rules were poorly done. Would make a great setting/plot for your favorite horror RPG.


LIKED: Very original setting, with great atmosphere.

DISLIKED: Would have been great if they'd included more setting and dropped the rules entirely.

QUALITY: Very Good

VALUE: Very Satisfied

The action in-game seems to consist mostly of the players acting out their ideas of how they'd react to a simple and horrific situation. Could be good in theory, could be very, very bad to play in. No real attempt is made to justify what's going on or to develop characters or a plot. It's a standalone concept on almost any level.

LIKED: The game rules are simple and well-adapted to the situation. There's no real happy ending.

DISLIKED: The game rules are more complex in some areas than they need to be, on consideration of what the game's about.

QUALITY: Acceptable

VALUE: Satisfied

That's a spot-on analysis, Jim. It's an experimental game...not really for everyone. But I think it would be interesting to see how people would react. - Jared

Eh, it was a interesting concept with some interesting rules, but it just didn't seem complete somehow. Cool? Yes. Scary? Yes. Playable? Barely. Worth the $3? Maybe.

LIKED: Cool concept and original rules.

DISLIKED: Not nearly enough. All you get is a little meat and a smattering of flavor. It just leaves you wanting more.

QUALITY: Disappointing

VALUE: Disappointed

This rather short game has a couple interesting rules, but the overall presentation could have been much better. It is meant to be a game played in 6 sessions with each session lasting one week of game time.

I honestly don't know what could be added, but it feels like there is material missing.

LIKED: The rules encourage team play

QUALITY: Disappointing

VALUE: Disappointed
