Hey Jammi! Can I asked what software/website you used to create the zine version of We Forest Three? It's absolutely gorgeous!
We Forest Three
A downloadable solo game
We Forest Three is a solitary tabletop roleplaying game.
Your City is dying. The Forest that once existed here is lurking in the spaces between realities. Within it the Forest are beings of Filipino folklore, their truth long forgotten. The Forest is angry, hungry, and slowly destroying the City.
Tonight, the City may die, and the Forest seeks Rebirth.
You are a Witch Seeker. You come from a long line of Witch Seekers. You must uphold the familial duty, and enter the Forest alone. You must find the Sisters Three, overcome their challenges, and force the Forest to comply.
So the City may Survive.
But the path is dangerous, extremely difficult, and harrowing. If your soul buckles, cracks, or break...you will emerge from the Forest, not human anymore. You will be something else entirely.

We Forest Three will ask you to create a Witch Seeker. Follow the prompts, roll dice against the tables to see what the Forest asks of you. It's very much like a choose your own adventure game, except with simple tabletop roleplaying rules laid over it. The game is based on the lovely Macchiato Monsters, a rules lite OSR system.
- For one player, though optional rules are provided for group play if you'd like to share the tension and challenge
- Based on Philippine folklore, featuring creatures like Duwende, Aswang, Tikbalang, etc.
- Strong prompts are provided, but you are encouraged to fill in the gaps with your own intuition and imagination
- You will need a complete set of polyhedral dice
- High replay value, since so much depends on the roll of the die
- We Forest Three is also a SWORD DREAM

Just finished my first playthrough! Thoroughly enjoyed it and even made it to the end! Surprisingly, I rolled really well and didn't get called on to use my resources at all, but a Diwata did repair one for me. That, plus a number of other rolls of the dice, made for a really interesting story and character growth. Thanks for this game Jammi, I'm sure I'll play it plenty more times!
oh gosh! 😭😭😭 I haven't made it to the end yet! Haha, I'm so happy for you though, that sounds like an amazing journey~ thank you so much!
It was super cool! I wrote the whole thing down like a journal, and I think even looking back at that will be interesting.
I'm starting my second play through now; my first time I had 17 Soul Resilience, this time I have 7!
oh no a 7! 😭😭😭
I still made it through! Whew! Still love this game so much.
I did notice a few wee things, like the image attached (no 4-6 option?).
Just wanted to let you know.
Wow I am so amazed! I'll try playing again this week and see if I can make it all the way through.
Thank you so much for pointing it out, I'll work on that asap! I always appreciate the extra pair of eyes ✨
Just updated the typo error! Thanks so much <3
You're very welcome!
I also noticed the following, after meeting the Sirena, the '5-6' result isn't bolded.
And finally, after meeting with the Second Sister and retrieving the second glass bottle it refers to the First Sister again rather than the Second which confused me a little. Not sure if it's meant to be the Second or if I'm just reading it wrong.
Thank you again! As I've said, I really love this game. It seemed to really touch something for me that I can't quite explain?
Playthrough number 3! I only have 9 Soul Resilience, my Bravery is 6, my Innocence is 5 and my Kindness is 11... wish me luck?? This will definitely be a different story experience than my last ones, I'm looking forward to it!
Oh gosh those numbers are so low, I'm wishing you the best!!!!
I've just finished a playthrough and LOVED going through the Forest <3
I'm so glad! How far did you make it? 💖
I made it until the end! I thought I wouldn't, since you warn us that the beginning that the game isn't supposed to be easy, but having 16 in Innocence saved my butt many times :D (I should play again to meet the Oracle or the Brothers).
I particularly loved your writing, which is so evocative, and the whole story made me want to discover the Philippine folklore :)
Saw this tweet, looks interesing for sure!
