Lost Roads is a fantasy game about facing the hardship of climate migration in a bygone age. As nature is exploited within an inch of life, cataclysmic storms gather speed and shape-shifting horrors surface. Heedless of death on the horizon, humans continue to extract and waste.
Generations after the collapse, the Tarnished—occult rebels, misfits, and outcasts stripped of their way of life—band together in enclaves using ever-decreasing mystical power to struggle for survival, rescue loved ones, reclaim heritage, blaze trails, and reach safe haven before the Long Storm.
I’m excited because it’s my first game. Secondly, I’m interested in the subject matter: a dystopian cautionary tale about the extreme outcome of environmental neglect. We are past the point of no return. The collapse happened. The world we know has disappeared. Now we’re trying to avoid human extinction in a dangerous environment through resistance, mitigation, and adaptation.
My hope is to complete it before reality catches up with fantasy.
