Front page for Mother

Genre: Sci-Fi
Participants: 2-4 players


DesignerHåkan Almer


She’s your mother, a planet-sized organism floating in space. Around her your father orbits as a small moon. The father moon is a place of bone forests, endorphin geysers, a great blood river and fields of eyes. This is where Mother’s eggs hatch and your life as a hatchling starts – and where a deadly competition takes place between you and your ruthless siblings.

Show Mother your dominance over your siblings to ensure your survival.

· Grow stronger and gain new abilities.
· Harvest resources to use, hoard or trade back to father for precious milk.
· Gain rewards by collecting and feeding Mother her favourite snack, the eyes of the father moon.

Present all your resources to Mother at the end of the game (or after the first year as a hatchling) to see whom she will grant the most love. In the end, only the best loved hatchling will be allowed to grow up – all the others will be devoured by Mother.
