A great game about being a taxi driver for supernatural beings, and educational on Filipino folklore.
Ma'amser, Saan Po Kayo?
A downloadable game
Being a taxi driver is a tough job already. Being a taxi driver with your third eye wide open and a kind heart makes it even harder. “Ma’amser, Saan Po Kayo?” translates (roughly) in English to “Ma’am/sir, where to?”. This is a 2-4 hour micro-RPG designed for 3-5 players. It’s about bringing passengers where they need to be at night. Pilot a kind-hearted cabbie who does their round in Metro Manila, the capital of the Philippines. Have some of your friends play your familiars – spirits or monsters that you helped in the past, and are now trying to pay it forward. This is a city where there are just as many spirits as there are people, and they need help too. Take that wheel, hang some sampaguita on your rearview mirror, fire up Waze. Your passengers are waiting.
No previous knowledge of Filipino folklore is needed in order to play this game! In fact, I designed it with a foreign audience in mind. The game has an extensive page on landmarks in Metro Manila, some examples of the spoopy monsters that haunt our local lore, and references for people who want to know more.
