The Way Home


Welcome to Christmas in July! In celebration, this digital title has been marked down by up to 40%! For more of Santa's savings, visit our Christmas in July sale page.

There's a place, or a non-place, perhaps, where time stands still. Every face is familiar, every place a hazy recollection, and the road goes ever onward, on towards home. You don't belong here, you know you don't, so you have to keep moving. Find your meals where you can, rest where its safe, and keep walking that well-worn trail. You'll get there eventually.

But the road isn't easy. The people often hold secrets, the dead walk in plain sight, dark magic clings like fog to the landscape. The Devil is at your heels, waiting for you to slow, for doubt to build up, for you to lose hope.

One day, you'll make it home. Wherever home is. Whenever home was.

The Way Home is a Powered by the Apocalypse-based roleplaying game intended to invoke the tone and structure of Cartoon Network's Over the Garden Wall. It's designed for short, punchy campaigns with limited duration, not unlike the miniseries. Players confront scarcity and the open road in a world where nothing is as it seems.

The Way Home is an inspiring little game that honours its main inspiration Over The Garden Wall truthfully. It also gives you an interesting spin on PbtA: The stats are weaknesses, therefore who have to roll low to avoid negat [...]

The different Wild layers (basically NPCs as GM moves) make running this game a breeze. Different player moves will trigger a reveal of the next layer of an NPC, so it makes the game unfold like an episode of Over the Garden Wall. I had a traveller go [...]

Scanned image
These products were created by scanning an original printed edition. Most older books are in scanned image format because original digital layout files never existed or were no longer available from the publisher.

For PDF download editions, each page has been run through Optical Character Recognition (OCR) software to attempt to decipher the printed text. The result of this OCR process is placed invisibly behind the picture of each scanned page, to allow for text searching. However, any text in a given book set on a graphical background or in handwritten fonts would most likely not be picked up by the OCR software, and is therefore not searchable. Also, a few larger books may be resampled to fit into the system, and may not have this searchable text background.

For printed books, we have performed high-resolution scans of an original hardcopy of the book. We essentially digitally re-master the book. Unfortunately, the resulting quality of these books is not as high. It's the problem of making a copy of a copy. The text is fine for reading, but illustration work starts to run dark, pixellating and/or losing shades of grey. Moiré patterns may develop in photos. We mark clearly which print titles come from scanned image books so that you can make an informed purchase decision about the quality of what you will receive.
Original electronic format
These ebooks were created from the original electronic layout files, and therefore are fully text searchable. Also, their file size tends to be smaller than scanned image books. Most newer books are in the original electronic format. Both download and print editions of such books should be high quality.
