A solo journaling game where cooking sets you free

Close Your Eyes and Remember

You wrote the original family cookbook.

But that’s all you know for sure. Your spirit lives in your recipes, passed down from generation to generation. Gather up memories and use your powers to heal, harm, or move on. Who will finally achieve your wish and set you free?

My Mother’s Kitchen is a solo journaling game about traditions, change, and cooking. Transform your future to remember your past with a new tarot card system that mixes creative prompts with tactical thinking.

Bittersweet, hopeful, and eerie, cook your way through eras, trials, and tribulations using your own family's recipes or ones you love. This game is a new take on tarot games, in the spirit of others before it like Anamnesis, O Captain, Skyworthy, and Thousand Year Old Vampire.

"But there were a few [TTRPGs, including MMK,] that really stood out, projects that tried to challenge not just players, but the very idea of what a tabletop RPG could be." - Dan Arndt, Polygon, "Zine Quest and Zine Month took tabletop RPGs in weird new directions"

"Listennnnnn I was so excited about My Mother's Kitchen I backed it twice. One for me, and one for my mom!"
