Friends, I've just released a small tabletop heist and decoration game where you play as a family of tiny borrowers in a big human house.
Its played in a physical home, with the real objects that are there, and (though its got a cute vibe) pokes at issues of collection, preciousness, and resources- and how those lines split differently for different people.
Go on borrowing missions! Build your nest! Don't get caught!
