Home Alone 6: Looking out for number one

Now that the rest of the whole world is forced to act like the antisocial misanthropists we are, a lot of game companies suddenly take notice. More and more games get a solo mode. We already wrote about Carcassonne and Harry Potter: Hogwarts Battle, but there's also for example one for Arcadia Quest. Like CMON says: "Developing a solo mode for Arcadia Quest is something that has been on our minds for many years" - it took a virus to finally get them off their lazy asses.

It's appreciated though. Here are some other recent initiatives and freebies to get you through the lockdown.

Find the Grail and save the world!

Ivan and Vesselin Alexiev invite you to discover a new world in their solo fantasy adventure game Satchel: A Journey Unknown. Now that the Kickstarter campaign is delayed because of the coronacrisis, they decided to release a free PnP version. Here's a playthrough.

Adventure of 2D6

Then there's 6X6 Tales: a solo fantasy adventure game in 3 small booklets, inspired by Barbarian Prince and the like. Designed by Jack Darwid, of Adventure of D-fame.

At least death will be swift

And Thistroy Games started a new scary season of A4 Quest. The first episode of A4 Quest: Inhuman is available for download.

Hey, bullfrog!

Keith Matejka's Thunderworks Games (Roll Player, Cartographers) offers their very first game Bullfrogs as a free PnP for a limited time. It includes the solitaire variant.
