As side projects, I design tabletop games as a hobby. In the last few years, I've become enamored with a niche line of role-playing games called Story Games, which are small little games that walk the line into improvisation territory, where the goal is to create a story with your friends around the table.

"Under The Cowl" is a digital "take-your-turn-then-pass-your-phone-to-the-next-player" game inspired by these types of games.

The theme of the game is similar to the start of The Incredibles....players take on the roles of either a hero, sidekick, or villain and are then asked questions by an interviewer about their past, with a series of quasi-random story prompts thrown in to help the creative juices flowing when coming up with the answers.
