The Yawhg is a one- to four-player choose-your-own-adventure game that randomizes a unique story every time you play. The evil Yawhg is returning. How will the town’s locals lead their lives in the meanwhile, and what will they do when the dreaded Yawhg finally arrives? The fate of a community hinges on the characters’ actions, and the decisions of their players.

  • Stories which can be played alone, or with friends.
  • A fully fleshed-out world, where actions can have dire consequences.
  • A randomly generated story that's different every time you play.
  • Gorgeous artwork by the award-winning Emily Carroll.
  • Over 50 unique endings that can happen to every character.
  • A haunting soundtrack by Ryan Roth, sound designer for Starseed Pilgrim.

Not only is The Yawhg a unique experience in self-directed storytelling, it’s a visual and audio tour de force.

The Yawhg is a gorgeous adventure that's likely to amuse and move you in equal measure.
Originally posted by Chris Priestman, Indiestatik:
Thematically [the Yawhg is] strong, and all of its design is driven to deliver a poignant experience that you’ll want to revisit.
Originally posted by Eric Mack, Gorilla Film Magazine:
The real joy [in the Yawhg] comes from multiple experiences, and seeing the variety it has to offer. This is, of course, aided by the game being utterly charming on most every front.

Q: Will this ever come out on Mac/Linux/iOS/Android?
A: It's entirely possible! It would take a bit of reworking of the inside of the game, but it is a thing that is probably going to happen!

Q: I love the music, is the soundtrack available?
A: The album will be able to be purchased as soon as the game is released! It has some music that you don't even hear in the game, too!

I got a chance to play this at the Fancy Video Game Party in Toronto and I have to say that it is EXTREMELY creative and a wonderful, story-game experience! I may have to buy this! Also not all choices are what they seem hehe

Can't wait for this. "(oceans)" is perhaps my favourite piece of VGM from 2013.
