A Loud Noise in a Quiet Place
A downloadable RPG
A Loud Noise in a Quiet Place is a tabletop roleplaying game about temporary hearing loss.
It’s a condition I’m often subjected to, and it’s a pain in the bum. It’s isolating, frustrating, joyless and sometimes painful. This is true for the people around me as well as myself.
I don’t pretend that this condition is anything like permanent or total hearing loss, or that this game accurately portrays what even my condition is like. But it’s meant politely to develop empathy. So that’s where we’re coming from.
You can play this by yourself, or with a partner. You'll play a character who's suffered temporary hearing loss. Your partner will play everything else.
A Loud Noise in a Quiet Place is the first of a series of shortform story games written by Marcus Shepherd of Blue Golem Games. It's complete, but feedback and reviews are invaluable for any future development.
