Posted By: TomasHVMI picture Jackson having a crying fit, talking to his imagined friends, the darlings, begging them to let him kill them ... softly of course ... maybe with a pillow?

Good night, darlings- Matthijs HolterThis is a game for two or more players in a space with boundaries – a room with doors, a circle on the floor or similar. One player is a creative person – game designer, writer, film maker, composer, whatever; pick something that all players can understand or relate to. The others are darlings – parts of the creator’s latest work – parts that she really liked, even loved, but that she now sees have to go. There should probably be at least three darlings.
Posted By: J. WaltonIn Your Own Skin - like a lot of experiments, I think this one overstepped a little and needs to be rethought in some places before it goes through extensive external playtesting. It does seem ready for some initial alpha testing with groups of local players, though
Posted By: J. WaltonDouble King, I just re-read my review of your game and thought it sounded much more negative than I intended. I think your game has an exciting premise and lot of real promise, so I was mostly focusing on what I thought worked less well in an effort to help you make it even better. Sorry if that came off in a less-than-supportive fashion. I think your game kicks ass.
