This is a fun game that follows the Wretched and Alone template very well. Definitely worth checking out.
To Reign in Hell
A downloadable game
To Reign in Hell is a solo TTRPG / Journaling game about fear, lamentation, and loss, but it is also about pride, determination, and hope. You play the last warden of Hell, and you are utterly alone. The seals maintaining the prison are failing, and the malevolent souls of the damned constantly tear at the walls to escape. You have lost everyone who could help you, and whatever purpose you once fulfilled, it has long since been replaced by this lost cause. Though the situation is dire, the outlook bleak, you once fought a war against Heaven itself, so it is not in your nature to submit. You are indeed alone, but you persevere. Doubt, however, can be insidious, and hope is an unreliable ally.
To Reign in Hell is part of the Wretched & Alone game jam. Details can be found here:

Hands down, one of my favourite W&A games. I'm working on my first W&A game and To Reign in Hell is definitely one of my inspirations. Thank you and congratulations, Cody! :)
