About Pick & Poke

Welcome to Pick & Poke, a unique narrative adventure game crafted in just 7 days for the 7DRL Game Jam.

With its focus on emergent gameplay, resource management, and non-violent storytelling, Pick & Poke offers a refreshing and immersive gaming experience unlike any other.


Pick & Poke presents players with a choice-based narrative adventure set in a rogue-like world, but with a twist – there's no violence involved. Instead, players must rely on their wits and resource management skills to navigate through the challenges presented to them. The game features randomly generated events, allowing for endless replayability, and focuses on the strategic use of tokens to make the right choices and progress through the story.

Key Features:

  2. Resource Management: Tokens serve as the primary resource in Pick & Poke, representing the player's ability to make choices and influence the outcome of events. Players must carefully manage their tokens to make the right decisions and progress through the game.

  3. Randomly Generated Events: Each playthrough of Pick & Poke offers a unique experience, with events and choices being generated randomly. This ensures that no two playthroughs are the same, keeping the game fresh and exciting with each new adventure.

  4. Emergent Gameplay: As players progress through Pick & Poke, they may acquire personality traits that grant unique passive effects, allowing for emergent gameplay experiences. These traits can influence the player's choices and interactions with the game world, adding depth and complexity to the gameplay.

Playing Pick & Poke is simple – just drag and drop your tokens onto the choices that interest you. Each choice you make will have consequences, leading to rewards or challenges that shape the course of your adventure.
