Button Kin

Having run her first game just before the dawn of the pandemic era, Yvris (pronounced Eve-ris) suddenly found herself with a lot of time to immerse herself in different systems and roleplaying experiences, developing a borderline obsession. No more than 6 months later she decided to start making her own games. Friends of Yvris will recognise this charming combination of hubris a masochism as quite typical.

Drawing on a life long love of sci fi, fantasy, whimsy, and wry humour, Yvris is best known for her solo RPG about being a baby bumble bee, Bumbling, her reality TV TTRPG about sassy, cutthroat camelids, Drama Llamas, and her work streaming with Girls Run These Worlds.

Jude's World

Yvris' latest project, Jude's World, is a solo, tarot based journaling TTRPG in which a plucky preteen protagonist struggles to reunite their warring parents. The game aims to both pay homage to and critique "Parent Trap"-style narratives as well as reveling in a 90s sitcom aesthetic inspired by the likes of Boy Meets World, The Fresh Prince of Bel Air, and Clarissa Explains it All.

You'll take on the role of the titular Jude - a 12-year-old who's desperate to grow up and certain that they'll do a better job of it than their parents. Jude just found out their parents, Mika and Jamie, are getting a dreaded divorce and they are NOT inclined to take it lightly. Steer your version of our protagonist through a complicated time in their and unleash your inner grumpy almost-teenager, if only for a little while!

Jude's World employs a traditional Rider-Waite tarot deck to generate story prompts as well as a pair of six sided die (d6) for resolving "Traps". Playing in rounds you'll pull cards, choosing which to use to generate events, characters and artefacts in your story. As well as trying to bring their parents, Mika and Jamie, back together you'll play through important milestones on Jude's journey into teenhood and explore their family's past through the keepsakes and knickknacks you uncover around their home. As a player you'll be encouraged to investigate what happened in this relationship. Was it always doomed to fail? Or is it salvageable? And even if so, is it Jude's place to save it? Either way, getting these two people back together won't be as simple as it is in the movies.

Kickstarter Basics

The campaign will fund a print run of the 32-page game, plus a companion workbook.
