How We Came To Live Here

How We Came to Live Here has been temporarily removed from our catalog as we are in review with Native American consultants to better make this product a respectful and celebrating work instead of an appropriating and exploitative one.

The People have emerged into a strange new world, a world ruled by monsters. They must carve a place for themselves in this hostile place. Tell the tales of mythic heroes facing the threat of terrible monsters from outside, while at the same time finding their way within the strict rules and expectations of their family and their village.

How We Came to Live Here is a story-telling game which evokes the stories of Native American people. Within the game, characters must navigate their own ambitions and desires, the conflicting demands of their fellow villagers, and the ever-present threat of monsters and natural disasters from outside: Your own ambition could lead you down a path of corruption.

Play How We Came to Live Here, and tell your own story of the Fifth World.

If you're looking for something highly different, highly immersive and highly engaging, why not order a copy of How We Came to Live Here.”

I have never played a game that so thoroughly puts me in the shoes of people so different from myself, and helps me to see the world through their eyes. Combined with just enough magic, conspiracy, and the occasional sympathetic monster, How We Came to Live Here is a very fun and exciting game.”
