Signs of the Sojourner is a narrative card game about communication and connecting with people. Your deck is your character, and it reflects your experiences and shapes your relationships. Make decisions about who your character is, pushing forward with the cards you're dealt.

At the beginning of the game, you take over the family store following your mother's funeral. It's up to you to travel to diverse locations and acquire goods for the shop. Along the way, you'll encounter intriguing stories, compassionate characters, and delightful surprises in a world where travel is difficult and climate change has made life hard.

You'll explore the world, but also realize what it means to return home. Will you hold on to your childhood friendships or will your adventures on the road lead you down different paths? Who will you become, and what will you leave behind?
