The most interesting day of a person's life is the day when it ends. But this isn't a place for ordinary people. This is a place for the strong, the worthy, and those willing to compromise everything.
In short, Gratitude is a storytelling game about trying to please an unknowable god-being in the hopes of being able to leave this terrible place. Once you die – and you will die – you might return as a Haunt, a pale shade of what you were in life. And you will turn against those you most recently called friend.
This is a game about losing everything.
This is a game about being grateful for what you have.
