Humanity is dying, and there is no escaping it. Only a few hours remain before the end of human existence, and the cause is still a mystery.

No matter how much you fight it, your life will soon come to an end. What will you do with the few hours you have left? A whirlwind of emotions rushes through you, and you perceive a glimpse of self-awareness. Will you be able to discover your true nature before the End?

So Long, My World is a strategy card game with simultaneous action selection for 1-5 players. It combines a unique art style with an immersive and emotive theme. 

You will need to wisely choose how to spend your final hours. Will you seek to warm your heart or explore the depths of the dark madness by following destructive desires? Beware! Others are exploring their own madness and may do whatever it takes to disrupt your journey.

So Long, My World is a labor of love, our attempt to prove that board games can be art. The result is a gorgeous, limited edition product with artwork of the finest quality.

Challenge other players in a competitive multiplayer game or play a campaign specifically designed for 1 player and unveil the true nature of humankind.  

The clock is ticking, and time is running out... Are you ready to face yourself?

To get the All-In option just add 28€ to your pledge. It works in the same way for White Eye, Black Eye and Black Eye Early Bird pledge levels.

The production of So Long, My World will be possible only with your support. During the campaign, a number of SGs and Add-ons will be released, dedicated to all those who believe in this project. Some expansions will be labeled as KS exclusives, and will not be available through normal sales channels. We reserve the right to sell them as promotional material at trade shows or during events on our online store.

Distant voices are calling you, whispering horrible truths. Fragmented memories flash before your eyes, making you question your own identity. The whole of reality is fading, shattered into pieces. Will you be able to hold on to your true self and break through the System that is leading mankind into extinction?

So Long, My World offers a scenario-based solo experience with deep storytelling. You must choose from many different paths (scenarios) and walk across the eerie, dying world in search of the truth behind it all.

Each card played brings you to an event in the scenario book that will often test your true feelings with a reflective question.

Each scenario has more than 4 different endings. Each one will also unlock a special Word that can be used to gain access to more scenarios and ultimately unveil the secret behind the Symbolic System.

  

No need for a long and complicated setup. Start your solo game in less than 5 minutes. While a single path takes 15-30 minutes to complete, reaching every ending and unlocking all the Words for the final scenario will keep you busy for over 20 hours.

Replayable?

You can replay the game even after unlocking all the endings of each scenario. You'll know the different paths the game could take, but how you play the game doesn't spoil it going back to it a second time. It's whether you can even get to the end that's the challenge each time you play, and it won't be that easy.

    

Ver 0.9 - Currently under professional proofreading and editing. Proofed version will be available soon.

     

"The world... is indeed beautiful. We should have understood it earlier. I’m sorry... so sorry, my dear Odette. Forgive me. Please, forgive me for not understanding its beauty."

So Long, My World is a unique work of art that uses shades of black and white to convey the emotions of the human soul.

Each design of the Remnant cards was traditionally inked, making them all individual art pieces.

Gestalt cards, which are the closest representation of the catastrophe that is destroying humankind, feature mysterious designs that hide the most terrible secret about the end of humanity.

The tokens use different masks to represent 5 feelings: Hope, Nostalgia, Resignation, Despair, and Madness categorized as positive, neutral or negative feelings. Cards that require positive feelings as a cost may often help other players, while negative feelings may bring destruction to everyone.

The only human being who, for reasons unknown, is free from the disruption of identity… While she is destined to die like everyone else, she is still attempting to save her world.

Her left eye is covered by a golden mask. It is said that the left eye has a connection to the Eye of the Sun, also known as Mark of Sol.

The Defier of Fate is a high-quality resin model in 40mm scale, in line with the most modern games. It is available as an optional add-on.

It is of the finest beauty and can be used as a first player token or using the expansion Defier of Fate.

Risks and challenges

We have successfully finished and fulfilled our previous Kickstarter project with the full satisfaction of our backers and no complaints about our policies and customer service.

We are confident about the delivery of the game - we have accumulated the experience working on our previous project that went as smoothly as possible we overcame any
of the issues that occurred during the production and fulfillment stages.

Even though the bulk of design work is completed, So Long, My World is a title that demands the highest quality and we are constantly looking at ways to improve it.

As we have already demonstrated with our previous project, we try to always keep you informed of the progress of production along with regular and frequent news.
