You can’t always get what you want.
In the mid-size American East Coast town of Alkaevsburg, everything seems to be business as usual. For the staff and students of Cognosco College, life goes on much as it always has.
But today, things are different. An archeological team returns from a lengthy expedition with its finds–among them, a statue found in a secluded shrine on an island in the Pacific, dedicated to an spirit whose name roughly translates to “The Giver.”
When a small group of people encounters this statue, their lives are changed…
“Twishted: Academia” is an alternate take on my game “Twishted,” set this time in a college setting with ordinary people as the stars.
Characters are all normal people who either work or study at the college, or who are there on this day for some reason. When they encounter the statue of the Giver, it grants their fondest wish…but when it finds that they are unable to fulfill their end of an unknown bargain, their wishes are corrupted, changed into something that fulfills the wish in a way they never would have wanted.
Will they find a way to appease the Giver and regain their wish?
