Crypt Community is a game about trying to build something by Avery McDaldno and Karl Parakenings.

Why Try It: Cute character designs & a simple simulation of interpersonal community dynamics in a fantastical setting.
Author’s Notes: "Crypt Community probably still has a bunch of little glitchy bits. But it’s playable! And we built it in a week, and I learned so much. And I’m hoping that in passing it to you, you get something out of it. Maybe just a brief amusement. Maybe a window into the frustrations I sometimes feel, trying to build communities without really understanding how communities operate or who I’m inviting into my spaces. I guess… play to find out what happens?" [For much more, see Avery’s explanation of the game]
