Lonely House is a hybrid novella and roleplaying game. It is a story about family, and the way the past can haunt us. It is a story about relationships, even when we don’t recall everything about who we were. And it is a story about a house that is also a memory, and together we will determine what that means.

As you read through Lonely House, you will be prompted to create journal entries, take sidequests, and make in-character choices that significantly impact how the story unfolds. Much more than a choose-your-own-adventure novel, Lonely House invites you to write your version of key events in an act of collaborative fiction that is both immersive and unique.

Welcome home. Which path will you choose?
