Snow is all around you. 

Except for that patch of blood up ahead.

What's there?

Will you survive?

Red snow is a solo, survival horror, writing game. You play you, in the snowy apocalypse. Can you survive the first encounter?

After the game, take a picture of your character sheet and tweet it at me (@thebestpupper). I'll put all character sheets I receive in the back of the next encounter. Keep a tally of who lives and who dies.

(spoilers for sure sorry)
I typically don't comment but in this instance I feel like I have to because

Am I missing something?

All the comments talk abt an emotional experience and so did the person who recommended this to me but my first playthrough had me die on my best friends first attack, and on my second playthrough I lost all my health before even getting to name my best friend because of a broken leg?

I must be missing something right? If there is some additional rulebook or information sheet please let me know.

Nice album tho

I'm a beginner and have never played a game like this before (I have no one to play with), so I wanted to try one solo. Is it beginner friendly and are the steps explained?

The game is actually played page by page, so yes!

This is a short but impactful solo survival-horror roleplaying game. It offers a unique experience in which the layout contributes to the horror using only minimal typography. The required soundtrack is incredible at setting the perfect atmosphere. Very cool take! I hope this series continues someday!

Brutal.

Just brutal.

It does exactly what you’d expect a survival horror game to do, and it does it really well.

This is a really good game

It's good in ways that surprised me. I won't elaborate further to avoid spoilers, except to say that I never expected some good music recommendations?

I find it hard to find time for playing games, but I finally did for this one. From start to finish, it wrung me out and stung like the best of films. I finally look at the clock again, once it's over: 45 minutes had passed.

You know when you delicately place a morsel of rich food in your mouth, and it takes you a full minute before you open your mouth or eyes again, and you feel like you got more from that one bite than from most meals?

This game does that.

Pay for it. Give it your time. I promise it will give more back, if you let yourself savor it. I look forward to savoring this game again.

Red Snow fucked me up

It made me cry and it hurt, and it made me immediately text a close friend of mine to tell them I missed them
