“The string is cut and the Sword of Damocles falls upon us all,
The Third Child will come, and with their TITAN save us.”
- Prophecy of the Ancients, Final Lines (Chapter 4, Verse 12)

We saw them coming. It was for them that the world was graced with a TITAN. A colossus of vaguely humanoid form, we discovered that if a child of sufficient destiny was found, they could merge their mind with the monstrosity and attempt to assert control over the dormant mind within.

We saw them coming. From the edge of our solar system, the Attendants flew, and in the center of their formation was the Sword of Damocles, a blade of unfathomable size. Our scientists knew that it would pierce our planet to the core, and that would be the end of the world.

We saw them coming. As the Ancients foretold, we found our First Child. And we prepared for their arrival.

TITAN/child is a game about the struggle between a handful of fated children and an ancient alien mind for control of the alien body, a towering colossus and the only weapon to stop invaders from space from destroying the Earth. It is a game for two players, one of whom will play the TITAN while the other plays the series of children who will attempt to pilot the TITAN. The game starts by filling out the First Child, TITAN, and Setting sheets, then starting play with The First Attendant.

This game is deeply inspired by the anime Neon Genesis Evangelion. It’s not meant to model the whole show, instead focusing on the struggle between individuality and synchronization. It is a dark game, and death of children is not only possible, but likely. Children also commit open violence.

If you enjoyed the system of this game, my other game Blood/Lust takes the basic mechanics and reshapes them into a 2-player game about a vampire and their prey/lover.

This game was originally designed for my Patreon, and is available in my Patreon Backlog, a collection of all of my Patreon games. The backlog can be accessed for a mere $10 per month.

A Printer-Friendly version is included, in case you don't want to print the ink-heavy art on the standard cover page.

Content Warning: This game contains violence perpetrated by and against children in a dramatic context.

Original electronic
Scanned image
These products were created by scanning an original printed edition. Most older books are in scanned image format because original digital layout files never existed or were no longer available from the publisher.

For PDF download editions, each page has been run through Optical Character Recognition (OCR) software to attempt to decipher the printed text. The result of this OCR process is placed invisibly behind the picture of each scanned page, to allow for text searching. However, any text in a given book set on a graphical background or in handwritten fonts would most likely not be picked up by the OCR software, and is therefore not searchable. Also, a few larger books may be resampled to fit into the system, and may not have this searchable text background.

For printed books, we have performed high-resolution scans of an original hardcopy of the book. We essentially digitally re-master the book. Unfortunately, the resulting quality of these books is not as high. It's the problem of making a copy of a copy. The text is fine for reading, but illustration work starts to run dark, pixellating and/or losing shades of grey. Moiré patterns may develop in photos. We mark clearly which print titles come from scanned image books so that you can make an informed purchase decision about the quality of what you will receive.
Original electronic format
These ebooks were created from the original electronic layout files, and therefore are fully text searchable. Also, their file size tends to be smaller than scanned image books. Most newer books are in the original electronic format. Both download and print editions of such books should be high quality.
