Escape From Isla del Mundo
A downloadable game
Your plane crashes onto an island. Through bloody eyes and fiery wreckage, you see what you came for - the monster you’ve prepared to hunt. Alas, you have none of your supplies or support crew. It’s just you and an island full of strange beasts and horrifying danger. Can you survive and get off this island in one piece?
Escape From Isla del Mundo is a solo writing RPG where you are an adventurer who is hunting a monster, but now you're stranded on its home island.
Use the one page document to start your journal about tracking the monster while also trying to work out how to get off the island. The prompt table will slowly guide you through weeks of minor investigations and surprises, as well as interactions and opportunities to get your imagination and creativity cooking.
I was heavily inspired by something different, at first. In the amazing comic ELEKTRA creators Mike del Mundo and W. Haden Blackman took our ninja assassin to 'Monster Island' at the end of the first issue. That location, and beautiful visual from del Mundo, has stuck with me ever since. So this was the first ingredient into the brainpan, after that comes all kinds of stuff from KONG: SKULL ISLAND to PREDATOR to THE GREY and finally to LOST. A good Man V Wilderness story is always good fuel for the brain and the soul.
To play this game, you only need a d20, a d6, and the way and will to write out an awesome adventure.
This game was created using the Second Guess System by Gamenomicon - which is utterly brilliant in construction - and inspired by their Hard Case game - a brilliant single page of construction and genre.
