A downloadable journey

Buy Now$4.00 USD or more

there are certain feelings that hit us whenever we walk down a hallway at night, stare at a weirdly painted waiting room, or examine a grainy picture of an off-putting room or hallway online.

there are times that comfort could be felt, there are times that unease takes over instead.

nevertheless, this fascinates our never-ending sense of curiosity.

and because of this, you decided to enter a realm where they are abundant.

but how? what happened? and who are you?

it’s up to you.

what matters is that you are here.


what is the spaces between dreams?

the spaces between dreams is a GM-less journaling game for 1 player, where you explore and document the places where reality feels altered, whether they made you feel comfort, discomfort, or something else.

inspired by The Backrooms, the Liminal Spaces aesthetic, and the After Hours aesthetic.

also inspired by (and is a hack of) Alone Among The Stars by Takuma Okada.


each purchase comes with both print-friendly and non-print-friendly pdf versions of the game, as well as both docx and txt versions of the game for further accessibility, options, and flexibility.

If you want we can Collab and make this a digital game too, I have this down to 3 sets of numbers and that is [1) 1-6 = Dice], [2) 1-4 = Suit], [3) 1-13 = # of Cards within a suit]. The reason why I suggest this is some of us don't own a standard pack of playing cards at home etc, so having 2 options to play is what I'm thinking. If you like my idea I can code this up and send you it for free.
