Buy Now$7.00 USD or more

Deep in the wilds, something has woken up. Or turned on. Or arrived. 

The government has discovered an anomaly and they are sending you, a crack team of scientists, explorers, and soldiers, to investigate and ideally bring it back. They know every new discovery is a new chance for power. 

You only know there’s a chance you might never come back.

In The Anomaly you will discover your setting, yourselves and your relationships with each other, and the anomaly itself through drawing cards and answering questions.

It took me 5 hours to run this game with 3 people. Other than that this was my first Gmless game and it ran amazing. I loved it. We played a group of Russian Spetsnaz investigating an anomaly deep in a German forest. We all went nuts and either ended up assimilating with the anomaly or dying. Lots of fun and everyone involved had a blast. 

Just for fun, here is my actual play of a solo run of The Anomaly. I had a blast with this game.

Ahhh! Thanks for sharing! Is there another place to check the actual play out? (I don't have DeviantArt account.) If you're willing, I'd always appreciate an itch.io review/rating as well - it's a great way to help more people discover the game. :) 

Ah, I forgot that marking it as mature puts an age check in place. Here's a direct link:
