Matthew Woodyard hasn't added a story.
" We are the custodians of life's meaning. We long for a parent to care for us, to forgive us our errors, to save us from our childish mistakes. But knowledge is preferable to ignorance. Better by far to embrace the hard truth than a reassuring fable. If we crave some cosmic purpose, then let us find ourselves a worthy goal."
We always hear of the tales where a stalwart crew sets off with a rock steady ship and through blood, sweat and tears, forces their way through the dangers of the cosmic wilderness to celebrate triumphantly.
That is not the kind of story I wanted to tell.
There are equal or perhaps more stories to be told where a crew does not succeed. They do not overcome their hardships, and at the end of the day they succumb to the elements. Are their stories not worth telling? Who better to tell the story of this crew than the ship itself. Who better to record and remember the lives of these unfortunate souls than the one who was with them the whole way even while they slept?
Echoes in my Hull is a solo journaling game about remembering the people we have lost.
The game uses tarot cards as its primary method of randomization. Each of the 72 tarot cards offer up meanings to be interpreted by the player, both upright and reversed. Through the game, the player will become acquainted with their crew and ultimately be the last existing record of their lives.

So why Crowdfundr?
The game needs art. First and foremost, it needs art! As there are 72 cards between the major and minor arcana, that's a lot of art. As much as I enjoy this project and taking it from idea to reality, I don't have the kind of funds to pay for that much art. Every dollar raised goes straight into making the game prettier.
What do you get for pitching in towards art?
A free PDF copy of the game. If enough money is collected, then an actual real custom tarot deck for this game is a possibility! (This would have to be a significant amount of money though, thousands of dollars.)
With support from people like you, this large and ambitious project will become a reality and with any luck, will result in a solo game of introspection, creative exploration, and appreciation for the time we have with the people in our lives.
