Xenolanguage – Thorny Games
"Xenolanguage: A Game About Language and Thought

It's five minutes in the future and we've just made first contact. In Xenolanguage, you are a linguist tasked with deciphering an alien language. As you gain fluency, you begin to see the world differently.

Xenolanguage is currently in active playtesting and gearing up for a 2019 release.

We'd love to share some of the current design and prototypes with you here.

What Makes Xenolanguage Different?
As characters decipher the language, memories are awakened in them. They use these memories as the foundation for interpreting the meaning of the language. They grab the pieces they didn’t previously have words for, the complex parts of their lived experience, and discover those pieces in the alien language.

The words don't have clean translations, they're confusing, vague, and alien. We gain understanding through our interpretation, but can only hope to glean parts of the language.

As they decipher the language piece by piece, the players use a shared channeling board with the new symbols to communicate with the aliens. You ask them questions in their language, and use it to hear their response.

Play With Us!

By signing up to our newsletter above, you'll be the first to know when we open Xenolanguage for public testing. Until then though, there are still plenty of opportunities to play!

We'll be at GenCon, Metatopia, Dreamation, GoPlayNW, and BigBadCon where we'll be listing open games for playtesting.

Hope to see you there!"

Solving Knights and Knaves with Alloy • Hillel Wayne
There’s a famous logic puzzle, originally from Raymond Smullyan, called a “Knights and Knaves” puzzle. We have a set of people, all of whom are either a Knight or a Knave. Knights only make true statements, and Knaves only make false statements. Usually the goal of the puzzle is to find out who is what. For example, if we have two people, A and B, and A says “both of us are knaves”, we know A is a knave and B is a knight.
