From the itch.io page:
"You and your family are survivors. You survived the old world, you survived each other. Now I'm asking you to survive once again. We need to rebuild the world or we will be part of it's ruins. Yes, cities, communities, pretzels, laughs. We need a city to be citizens. We need houses to belong."
Before the Beginning is a game of scavengers and their families struggling to build a city in a post-apocalyptic world. You will face moral challenges and dangers of all sorts: witches, doomsday religious cults, cyborgs, mutants... everything to build a home, to belong somewhere. Once the city is built, you can finally rest. Until there, there's no room for cowards.
To build the city you must manage not just your character sheet but the city sheet. Don't fool yourself, finding the right objects can be harder than you think. A lot of families already died trying, you can bet. But I trust in you. I know this shelter will become a beautiful city and maybe our children will be the mayors of it someday. Let's hope for the best!
