A downloadable game

Buy Now$2.00 USD or more

One night in your youth, something called to you, eventually leading you to a stunning tea tree unlike any other you'd seen. By the time you returned to your village no one believed it was real. But it's stuck with you over the years. Eventually the pressure builds to the point that you just have to find it.

Remember the Purple Tree is a solo roleplaying game where you play as a (possibly ex) tea picker, trying to find a strange and wondrous tea tree you remember from your youth. To play  you need a pack of playing cards (jokers removed) and something to write on and with.

This is an unassuming little game that has so much beauty to offer. It has great art with a readable layout. But what makes it shine is its almost surreal concept, and the pick lists that are part of setup, allowing you to effortless create your backstory context so you have a strong foundation on which to build your play session, and journaling entries.

I enjoy the simplicity of the mechanics. Some may find the open endedness of the card interpretation to be a bit intimidating.


everything about this is lovely.

can i ask what font was used for the main text?

(1 edit)

I'm glad you like it! I'll just cover all the fonts while I'm looking; the main body text is Bitter, the titles are Bebas Neue, and the smallcaps font is Mate SC.
