As I wrote in another review, I have a soft spot for 1/2-page RPGs that tell the setting and explain the rules concisely. Despite its short length, AS SOFT AS YOU REMEMBER manages to convey the trauma a selkie has faced, as well as the joy that comes with recovering their sealskin. I love the LARP elements in this game, where the player uses a soft piece of clothing to represent the skin and a salty snack for the taste of the sea.
As Soft as You Remember
A downloadable game
This game is a short love letter to selkie tales, and to the very human experiences they often mirror and reflect. Use a piece of soft clothing to represent the seal skin you have recently rediscovered, and hold it as you use cards and prompts to reflect on your time on land and your imminent departure. Play solo as the selkie, or connect with a friend to play the partnered roles of the selkie considering their return and the sea welcoming them home.
