You are a Muffin (Solo RPG)
A downloadable game
You are a pastry in a cozy café.
You can feel yourself slowly becoming stale.
Inspired by Arnie the Doughnut by Laurie Keller, You are a Muffin is a cozy solo journaling game from Exeunt Press, creator of the ENNIE-nominated Exclusion Zone Botanist.
Unlike most games where you are playing the role of another person, in You are a Muffin you are a pastry in a cozy café or coffee shop. Each customer will place an order, and perhaps take a seat to stay a while. There’s a chance that they might choose you as their snack, but that’s fine. After all, that’s why you were made.
This 22-page solo journaling game includes:
- Recommended music while playing
- Character creation rules
- Six different pastry types to choose (not just muffins)
- Mechanism for slowly becoming stale
- Questions and prompts for describing customers
- Character sheet
Make a cup of coffee or tea, put on some music, grab a pen and enjoy.
