Stuck and Wretched


You know, I’ve been thinking. Everything is… just comes together. It’s me. I chose this. I chose all this. This rock… this rock has been waiting for me my entire life. It’s entire life, ever since it was a bit of meteorite a million, billion years ago. In space. It’s been waiting, to come here. Right, right here. I’ve been moving towards it my entire life. The minute I was born, every breath that I’ve taken, every action has been leading me to this crack on the out surface.
– Aron Ralston, 127 hours

You are at the bottom of a crevasse 1,000 feet below ground. You lie in the middle of nowhere and no one knows you came here. A big rock fell with you and is pressing your hand against the stone surface. You are stuck.

Your only way out is surviving until rescue … unless you want to recur to more permanent methods. 

Stuck and Wretched is a game that uses the Wretched & Alone SRD based on The Wretched from Chris Bissette. It is a game of self discovery, despair and hope inspired by the movie 127 hours.

In order to play the game you only need a deck of cards, a die, and this manual. It is recommended to play with a tumbling block tower as well for a better experience, though not entirely necessary.

The game comes with 2 pieces of sountrack that were created to help the player become more inmersed in the situation they are playing. These were made in 48hs for the 2021 Global Game Jam by DJ Scihacker and thus aren’t long enough for a full play session.  If the game does well enough I’ll look to include a longer soundtrack to the game.

Content Warning (CW): claustrophobia, extreme hunger and thirst, hallucinations, killing animals for survival, physical pain, self-harm.
