We are no longer alone. In this roleplaying game, you play as the first humans tasked with deciphering an alien language. As you uncover meaning, you begin to see the world differently.
Xenolanguage is a game about first contact with alien life, messy human relationships, and what happens when they mix together.
Play centers on the Platform: a custom channeling board of mysterious origin. Use a planchette-like Lens to channel over alien symbols as you receive and interpret messages. Players will progressively discover meanings for the alien symbols on the board, grapple with what they learn, and experience how it changes them.
The base game of Xenolanguage includes a custom channeling board with 30 alien symbols, planchette-like lens, story deck and digital soundscapes.
A story game for 3-5 players in 3-4 hours.
