A downloadable game

Created for One-Page RPG Jam 2021.

Over the Mountain is a solo rural fantasy journaling game on one page. Your character lives in a small mountain town and records their journey to carry out their Calling as they get to know the local human and spirit Neighbors, find bizarre items to collect, and clear the strange Dungeons found throughout. Will your curious character stick with their mission long enough to fill an entire journal?  What Achievements might they unlock? 

Over the Mountain has players roll dice to generate prompts they must include as they record their daily encounters. It's flexible and leaves a lot up to the player so that it can be replayed again and again, generating a new town each time. If a rule isn't clear or isn't explicitly stated, it is up to the player to decide what best fits the story or is just the most fun. 

This is my first RPG ever. My goal was to write the RPG I most wanted to play. Hope others will enjoy it too!

I cant wait to play this. It covers so many things and seems like it will be much better than a hex or dungeon crawl. Awesome

Love this game. I have written a review for this game on my solo RPG blog https://rpgsologames.com/over-the-mountain/

I'm really honored! I'm so glad you liked and thank you so much for the review!

I’d never played this kind of game before a friend recommended it to me. I’ve been playing every day for two months and it brings me so much joy. Thank you!

Hi, do you have any sample playthrough that you can post so that I can understand more on how to play?

I do not currently but I'm hoping to make a Play with Me video in the nearish future. I'll be sure to link it in the description and reply when I do.

I started playing this a few days ago and I've already got 20 pages full. Do you know what you've done to me??? Midterms start in three days and all I can focus on is the freaking gas station ghost. 100/10 I'm telling everyone I know

I've only just started playing, but this seems delightful! I can't wailt to have a notebook packed with memories of this and the neighbours and spirits within
