Created during the 2020 Global Game Jam, Stories and Smoke revolves around you and another, entering a shrine. A ritual must occur to restore peace to your people, yet only one of the two of you will leave. In the shrine, you must confront your own being and community and make choices to determine your future.

Developer Quote

The two of you enter the shrine together. Only one of you will leave. Such is the ritual. Such is the path to restoring peace with your community. Something must transform.

Stories and Smoke is a narrative game about confronting yourself, your past, and your community, and choosing how -- or if -- you will return to your society. What soured the relationship with your people, during your training as a Bard? How will you move forward with your life, and reintegrate your story? How do you feel about the Other who is in here with you?

Who will walk out of the shrine?
