Image of two ghosts, one with angry eyes and eyelashes, the other with hearts for eyes. Text at the top reads: "Hearts & Haunts". Text at the bottom reads: "A game about friendly phantoms and spooky spectres."

Hearts & Haunts is a no-prep, pick-up-and-play RPG where you play restless spirits of the dead who must either befriend or frighten away intruders in your haunting. A hack of John Harper's Lasers & Feelings I wrote after developing the concept with my partner, Kat. Licensed CC-BY-NC-SA 4.0.

What's So Cool About Being a Cat?  is a quick to set up, rules-light RPG about cats! This game is a hack of Jared Sinclair's What's So Cool About Outer Space? and was published for the "What Is So Cool About Jam" game jam.
