I’m going somewhere, and I want you to join me. It’s a place that always seems just past our reach. A mixture of myth and reality. This place, it smells familiar, and yet it beats the heart like first times do. It’s wedged between a mix tape, a throw-away comment and a shifter. It’s going to take a lot of open road to get to. But open road’s all we’ve ever really got, anyway.
In Ribbon Drive, you and your friends will collectively create a story about a road trip, in the comfort of a living room, over the course of 3-5 hours.
You each create a character, one of the people going on this road trip. These characters are our individual jobs; each of us will roleplay one character’s decisions and actions.
You’ll share the responsibility of narrating the obstacles and scenery that comes up all around us. Music mixes guide our journey and shape the story as it unfolds. Ribbon Drive creates stories about letting go on the open road, and you all work to both further and complicate this agenda during the game.
It draws inspirations from road movies like Wristcutters, Little Miss Sunshine, and Thelma & Louise.
The ultimate goal of Ribbon Drive is to create a thought-provoking, meaningful experience. Let the music guide you. Let the road throw you curves.
