The revised and expanded second edition of Soft Focuses is available here:
This is a journaling game about dealing with ADHD. At the end of every night you write a journal entry about a fictionalized version of yourself. They have attempted the same things you have throughout the day, but usually with very different results. Create stats for this new version of yourself and roll on modifier tables to see how different your day might have been.
While the designed version of the game and the bookmark character sheet are priced at $7, the plain text version of game will always be available for pay-what-you-want. There are also community copies of the designed version available if you are unable to. I highly encourage you to donate the money you would have spent on this game to organizations supporting ADHD and other neurodivergent issues. Might I recommend Different Brains?
This game is about trying to see our daily lives through others' experiences. As such, try to keep an open mind and be as caring for this "other you" as you can be. I also acknowledge that everyone's experiences are different and my experience with ADHD is not necessarily the experience of others. I have worked with others to help account for this and wish to be as inclusive as I can be with this game.
This game is also not meant to be a diagnostic or clinical tool of any sort. The designer of this game is not a medical or mental health professional. If you suspect you have ADHD or another condition, please consult your primary medical caregiver or a specialist.
Also of note
I am currently researching a supplement that would include optional modifiers. These will deal with subjects like the process of trying to balance a medication dose, the inclusion of comorbidities, and the effects a menstrual cycle has on a medications effectiveness. I wish to cover these topics with care and need more time to cover them, but rest assured they are being thought of. If there is is something you feel should be included in this supplement, please feel free to reach-out and let me know.
If you try the game, I would love to hear about your experiences with it. If you tweet about it with #SoftFocuses. I will also add more community copies for each thread I see.
