Ineffable

Emergent Worlds that Grow as You Play

Ineffable is a choose-your-own-adventure life-sim where the world is alive and the story never ends. You could explore the deepest dungeons, go off to school, or become mayor — but what makes Ineffable truly different is that every NPC is on a journey of their own that could include these same goals and more.

The game is currently in a "technical preview" stage. It is not fun, but it is (somewhat) functional. The current release is available at play.ineffable.website.
