About Alex Roberts

Hello, I'm Alex Roberts! I create play that is grounded in care, connection, psychological depth, and mechanical elegance. 

You might have already enjoyed: 
  • Two-player, tower-based, heart-pounding roleplaying in my tabletop game of forbidden love, Star Crossed
  • Evocative shared storytelling from the ground up, in my accessible card-based storybuilding game, For the Queen 
  • Settings and hacks I've made for other games like Dialect, Misspent Youth, Sig: Manual of the Primes, and Threadbare 
  • Interviews with some of the most fascinating folks in roleplaying, on Backstory
  • Games journalism and critique in outlets like ZEAL, Vice, and Leaving Mundania
  • My gentle but insistent voice in community conversations around safety, wellness, and care in roleplaying

I do a lot! And I want to do a lot more.

That's where you come in. Your contribution helps me devote more time and energy to creating what I'm truly passionate about. 

With regular support, I can release projects like: 
  • POP!, a live-action game about niche online communities 
  • Behold the Tree, a semi-live game about being a great artist 
  • The definitive guide to Emojimancy
  • A tabletop game about the prosaic every day life of a sci-fi bridge crew
  • Essays on feminine analog game design, game texts as recipes, and why Final Fantasy X is essentially an encounter with the divine 
  • A game tentatively titled Two Friends Who Haven't Seen Each Other For A While Meet Up For Coffee
  • Audio Roleplaying Adventures

Thank you for reading and checking out my page! Look through the upcoming goals, pick a reward level that feels right, and let's do this! <3 

Particular thanks to Christina Tran for the header image, and Karen Twelves for the head shot!

100 patrons would be incredible! I would be absolutely blown away by this level of support and encouragement. In thanks, I'll share a PDF version of a very special game that has only been available from me, in person. Hint: it's not what you think.
