Let’s not bury the lede – I’m delighted to announce that Loot The Room is published Batts’ Songbirds in print for the first time in the UK!
Batts is one of my favourite designers who is responsible for some of the most original, thoughtful, and beautiful games I’ve ever played – things like The Wizards and the Wastes, Vultures, and Red Snow have changed the way I think about designing games entirely.
Songbirds is no different. It’s a game that asks the question, “What if knights didn’t slay dragons and instead helped them with their emotional issues?” It’s a fantasy heartbreaker that will actually break your heart, that uses songs to generate adventures and plays like a Diana Wynne Jones book wrung through a lens of Studio Ghibli movies.
I love it, I’m honoured to be bringing it to print, and I hope you’ll love it too. Find out more and pick up your copy here.
