Wretched & Alone in 1986


You are an amateur time traveler. You worked so hard to build your own rig, fabricating the parts, attempting to translate the assembly instructions, and monitoring various vulnerabilities in the space-time continuum to determine the most opportune time to take your maiden voyage.

Despite all your planning, you managed to get stuck—in 1986.

While the idea of living through the most radical decade in the history of mankind excites you, you’re eager to return to your own timeline, where your family, friends, career, and smartphone remain, but your rig is busted, and without Google, you’re forced to rely on your wits alone. Thankfully, you brought your worn copy of The Time Traveler’s Handbook, an indispensable guide that will help you navigate this ordeal until you can fix your generation-jumping jalopy and get back when you belong.

There is only one way to escape this decade: collect the ten items you need to create an operational flux capacitor and fix your rig. (This will be much easier if you can find the frazzled time traveler and convince him to help you return home.)

This is a downloadable solo journaling role-playing game. It’s like those old Choose Your Own Adventure books, except you have to write it as you play. If you have any questions, please contact us before purchasing, as all download sales are final.

Once your purchase is complete, you’ll be able to immediately download the file. It’s instant, like magic. You will not receive this item in the mail. If you email us next week asking us where your package is, we promise to reply in a prompt and professional manner, but we cannot promise that we won’t chuckle while we do so.
