A downloadable TTRPG

Pre-order Now$10.00 USD or more


Into the Blind is a sci-fi roleplaying game for 3-5 people, inspired by media such as The Expanse, Gravity, Arrival and Annihilation, and TTRPGs like Trophy, Mothership and Alien: The Roleplaying Game.

You are Salvager, Courier, Bodyguard, First Responder, Investigator, Debt Collector; whatever you need to be to make ends meet. You will be eaten by the machine the Company owns and operates, or you’ll die trying to escape it. You are subject to the inexorable forces of the universe. You are a mass moving through a vast field of factors and probabilities. You are a ship alone at sea, and the stories of sailors are the strangest and saddest.

You are a Freelancer. If the debt doesn't get you, the darkness will.

Riley really made Trophy her own. Just take a look—you'll see! 


"We take off into the cosmos, ready for anything: for solitude, for hardship, for exhaustion, death" — Stanisław Lem, Solaris

I think this quote sums up the feeling I got from reading the Partial Trasmission of In the Blind. I look forward to play it and have fun being a miserable freelancer among the stars!
