A downloadable feverdream

Buy Now$5.00 USD or more

You are a Tethered - a supernatural being bound to an apartment complex.

Your Daylight Hours are your own. Perhaps you spend them holed up in your apartment; perhaps you venture out into the World. You appear as any human might.

In sleep, you enter the Zephyr: an ever-changing, surreal, vast sort of dreamscape. 

There are rumors that the Zephyr answers only to one being of unspeakable power:
the Hierophant, They Who Were Conjured From Aether.

But the Hierophant, it is said, has gone away for a while,
and in their absence, you may roam the Zephyr with nothing to hide.
You are Yourself there, every beautiful and strange part of you.


the hierophant's gone away for a while is a game about queer joy and found family.

I played this game for Huetopia's Pride Brunchathon stream (video featured on the product page) and I am obsessed with it. the hierophant's gone away for a while provides a framework for players to create characters who live full, authentic, queer lives. I love the dream logic aspect where anything is possible and I love that I was able to use my vampire's ability to win at poker. The story we told was moving and evocative and was one of the most powerful roleplaying experiences I have ever had. This early access version has everything you need to play it, so buy this version and help the creator fund the full version!
