If Music be the food of love, play on - Twelfth Night (William Shakespeare)

Made for the Lost & Found Jam, The Anatomy of a Song is a solo-journaling game where you follow the lifespan of a song across various emotional occasions and reinterpretations.

Will you be a jingle that lingers from familiarity, a ballad sung for moments of love, a folk song about taking on the world (or bemoaning it)? 

Play on to find out :D

The Anatomy of the a Song is created using the Lost and Found SRD.

Thank you very much to Jack Harrison for the SRD, to the Cambridge Uni Tabletop Roleplaying Society for enduring my rants about game writing, and to everyone who supported this game idea.

The Anatomy of a Song is a solo RPG on music. You document the life of a song, from its inception to its first performance, charting how it's been continuously reinterpreted, until it enters musical canon or fades into obscurity.

Thank you! :D and glad you enjoyed the game
