Cold Soldier

This is a small zine-sized indie two-player game with a dark theme of a resurrected soul being forced to serve the master who has brought them back from the grave. The master naturally has terrible ambitions and will command their creations to perform dire acts.

During the course of performing these duties the soldier begins to remember flashes of their former life and perhaps gains the strength to begin to act on their former desires and regrets.

It looks pretty interesting but there does seem to be a massive expectation that the GM/Master character has to create an interesting narrative as they have to explain who the Master is, what they are trying to achieve and how they are achieving while maintaining the Gothic Horror ambience throughout.
