The Unfolk

For generations, your family has lived in secret, hiding among the normal folk of the world for fear of what they might do if your people were ever discovered. You have hoped to spare your children the burden of the truth until they were older, when they might be wise enough to understand, strong enough to survive. But time is not on your side; your people have been found out, and the government is coming, and it's time to get out. Do what you can to make sure your children have what they need to get them back to the other world, where your people await.

We told you there was no other world, that we were just like everybody else. It's time we told you the truth.

This game offers an optional 40% discount for members of marginalized communities. No questions, no judgment.
