Forward: Escape the Fold

The Fold is a dungeon made up of cards. I can choose between three of them, which might represent monsters to fight, gold to loot, potions to drink, etc. I can see a few rows further out, though, where there are more monsters and maybe a pool of poison or a shield that enhances my armor.

Since I can only select from cards adjacent to the one I’m currently on, if I select the middle card from the next row, I keep all three options, but if I turn left or right the selection shrinks to two. If I move to a card below the monster, they will leave their position to attack, finding whatever is below them.

Forward: Escape the Fold is a constant stream of tiny decisions. Picking up this pile of five gold coins means being attacked by a long-toothed purple worm, but then you can reach the merchant’s treasure chest and buy new items. Get this shield plus 4 armor and get hit by a giant squid that deals 3 damage, or drink this healing potion for 3 health and get hit by a salamander that deals 1 damage. The selection of snack sizes is endless.
