Anamnesis is a solo journaling RPG about self-discovery, reflection, and identity. You play as an individual who has woken up with memory loss. You do not remember who you are, where you are, or what you care about. As you draw tarot cards, you fill the blank spaces of your past and learn more about your present.
All that is needed to play is a deck of tarot cards and a way to record your thoughts.
Anamnesis is an introspective, character-focused solo RPG with evocative prompts and an original take on tarot cards as a storytelling tool. It’s perfect for players that are new to the genre, writers, and anyone with a love for storytelling. Anamnesis can also function as a great character building tool and resource for other RPGs.
