Baby, this town rips the bones from your back!
It's a death trap! It's a suicide rap!
We've got to get out while we're young!
'Cause tramps like us...

A 2-player RPG about two people--a Driver, longing to escape from this town, and a passenger, who wants to stay and make their stand here and now--having their final argument, before an ultimatum is made, and their fates are decided forever more.

Requires a standard, 52-card playing card deck, and about an hour of time.

Inspired by Born to Run by Bruce Springsteen, with a particular debt to Thunder Road and Born to Run. Listen here:

Created as part of Record Collection 2K19, an incredible game jam in which designers were challenged to create a game built around a particular album. You can learn more, and read more of the games, at https://itch.io/jam/recordcollection2k19.
