In RPGs (videogame ones, that is), items are your life. You find keys, sticks, lanterns, widgets, and all other manner of stuff that you carry around into the dungeons to help you defeat the boss. The Door Locks Behind You looks to recreate that feel on your tabletops, with plenty of puzzles for players to figure out. The game is up on Kickstarter now.
From the campaign:
You are the Champion of your people, the most skilled, or smartest, or strongest of your tribe...and so is the rest of your party.Using only the items in your pack you must claim the pieces of the ancient Relic of Power, the only thing capable of sealing away the Tyrant who terrorizes your lands.
These Relic pieces are locked away in dungeons, warped by the Tyrant into puzzling labyrinths filled with Monsters.
Collect the key items, defeat the monsters, unlock the doors
The Door Locks Behind You is a tabletop role-playing game for 2-5 players including one game master. The game strives to recreate the gameplay of The Legend of Zelda series in an old school TTRPG context by using an item-focused system that puts player ingenuity and resource management at the forefront.
The game's more than 2x funded with 11 days to go.
