The Sailor and the Siren is a card-based roleplaying game for two players taking place over the course of a single scene, progressing through playbills to weave a story of love, hunger, and the depths of the ocean.

One of you will play the Sailor: dashing, human, and foolish. Will you survive the Siren, or fall prey to her whims?

The other will play the Siren: beautiful, inhuman, and hungry. Will you fall in love with the Sailor, or give in to your hunger and kill them? Perhaps both?

Made for the One Scene Jam

Hello! What a wonderful game :) My favourite part is how well you have interlaced the feeling of danger for the Sailor in all of the scenes that comes from interacting with such an otherworldly being, as well as how the Siren has to navigate through their feelings of love and hunger, how contrasting those are in some points and yet how understandingly similar they are in others. 

A thing that was a bit disappointing is that, the way the scenes are structured, since First Sight always leads to either the Conversation or the Swim the part of the Dance about "Move on to the Conversation if the dance was above the water, or the Swim if the dance was below the water" will never be able to be fulfilled since each scene is played only once. 

My favourite scene has to be the Dive because of the feeling of inevitability that comes with it. Even more so than the final one, I thought this was were the path to one end or another was written. However, I found all of the scenes absolutely gorgeous, and the picture they paint together is very well linked -- and yet it lends itself to a lot of different scenarios thanks to your use of cards and the roleplayers' actions. 

Thank you so much for sharing this game <3
