A downloadable game

Prometheus, Run is a small RPG for 1-4 players. Created using public domain images and text from the 1831 edition of Mary Shelley's sci-fi classic Frankenstein. Prometheus, Run aims to remediate Mary's work for a new audience.

Inspired by the Othering of people like myself, players learn from classic literature as they begin life as someone unwillingly reanimated. I endeavored to reflect to the smart, wise and eloquent Frankenstein's monster, as portrayed in the book.

I really like the idea of obtaining books in-game and learning from them. That's a great idea!
