Houses of the Sun by Night is more than just a series of minigames. It’s an invitation to try something, to expand your understanding of what a TTRPG can be. While its flavor text is astounding, and it provides an incredible variety of interstitial games to easily slot into an ongoing campaign, Houses is weird in the best way possible, in a way I’m desperately trying to achieve in my own writing. I’m so happy I found this text.

People who are looking into experiencing this game should know that FISHING (the fishing minigame) is the only time I have found a game mechanic to be sublime, in the sense that it breaks through its context and expands more than it has any right to, in the sense that it's a tree that's been trying to touch the sky getting ejected into the far universe by an unexpected and, frankly, unjustified volcanic eruption.

I don't know who you are, but I think you especially need to see this as it is presented more than anyone else.
