About the Game

The year is 21xx

Extraterrestrial beings of multiple races have long since discovered our planet. Earth serves them one singular purpose: it's a fairly decent rest stop on the way to the planets they actually want to visit. Our food is pretty okay and our music is excellent, according to one particularly kind being. And fuel is WAY cheaper here!

In exchange for our hospitality, extraterrestrials often leave artifacts behind. These rare, priceless objects are stored within the Museum of Extraterrestrial Rarities. And, no: contrary to what others may say, the extraterrestrials are NOT just leaving their garbage behind!

Sadly, our translation device is awful, so we have to do LOTS of guesswork about what each artifact is. That's where you come in! Think you're up to the challenge?

This game was created for the Zine Idea Generator 2.0 Jam and used the prompt "Make a Table-Top RPG zine that turns song titles into alien artifacts"

How to Play

Start up a playlist, album, or whatever, hit shuffle, then pause it. For each artifact page, hit skip on your playlist and use that song title to generate an artifact. The title itself is all that matters, and it's the result of our AWFUL translation device, so you'll need to come up with a way better name for the artifact. Plus, since you're a curator, you'll need to fill out some other info too like where it came from and what it does. Don't forget to draw it as well, but don't worry, no one expects a curator to have great art skills...

Playing multiplayer? Instead of hitting skip for each artifact, fill out the back page by hitting skip and writing down the song title ten times. You'll use one of these (of your choice) for each artifact, but be careful: once everyone is done filling in their zine, you'll pass them around and around, marking your guesses for which song title was used on each page. Whoever gets the most correct wins!

How Do I Fold It Tho?

This video is a great example of how to fold an 8-page zine! It's the video I use personally :D
