Familiar Travels was always intended to be played as a single, cohesive experience. Enjoy Volume One and Volume Two together as the second Volume adds a depth of experience to the first volume, the compliments of the two together, and the events that unfold as a result!
If you've already purchased Volume One of Familiar Travels you can enjoy a reduced price of the bundle here, equal to the amount you paid for the first volume!
You were in a situation that many post-graduates found themselves in, degree on wall, parent's house, everywhere seem to think your degree is just as useless as you do. The uniquely disparaging Quarter Life Crisis has came to you in full force, and you have been left with nothing to do..
And when university has set us up for unreal expectations of the future, there's only one thing left to do..
Through insane luck or divine magic, you've received your acceptance letter to Vanaheim
Home of the Vanaheim Institute of Magic and Technology
There's only one problem, you're distinctly lacking in the magic department. In fact, this is the first time you've become aware of magic's existence.
Things have been strange over the past few weeks, and now that you’ve started to settle in it’s dawning on you exactly how much you fit in with people here, for better or for worse. The people in Vanaheim aren’t all that different than the people back home, there are bad people who make bad decisions with.. Bad consequences.
On top of that it’s felt as if your mental health has been slipping.. It’s been harder to connect to the people around you on a meaningful level.. I guess fitting in shouldn’t have been your only priority when it comes to these issues…
About The Game
This game was created as a love letter to internet fandom, and quickly expanded to become a deconstruction of relationships, a game about forging genuine connections, and the struggles of finding your identity in a community that you don't entirely fit into. If you're looking for a way to kill some time, or an experience that will connect with you on a deep emotional level, check out Familiar Travels. This is a game for anybody who is part of an internet community, or anybody who wants to explore the more nuanced and complicated aspects of relationships.
