I just finished Sentinel for the first time and I want to extend my highest compliments to Meghan for such a wonderful game. All of the possible results offered compelling questions and prompts, and while not every result I got was easy to write with, every result got me thinking. This game also got me to completely bulldoze my writer's block (8.7k words in 4 days!), and it's been the most fun I've had writing in a long while.
A downloadable game
You are the lone guardian of a place of great power - known to you only as The Sanctuary. Many years you have kept vigil in this place, guarding what is kept within from any and all who come to disrupt it or steal it for themselves.
Sentinel is a solo, journaling game about a solitary guardian and the place they are charged with keeping safe. It is a deck and dice based game in which you will create your guardian and the sanctuary that they protect before reliving the memories, facing threats, and finding interesting objects while time passes around you. And then, when the time has come for your watch to end, find out what happens to The Sanctuary when you are no longer able to guard it.

Extremely good story game. I went in expecting good things but I spent about twice as much time playing as I thought I would and the story I told was deeper that I expected. Surprising me with great story is always a big plus for a game in my book. Easily worth twice the price.
I did not see these mechanics on a solo game before. Good job!
