It's a very, very clever design, inspired by the Apocalypse system, but with a simplified resolution system, and a distributed way to managed the environment.
It's a really good system for storytelling and exploring one's identity and feelings and relationships. The characters are Very queer and vulnerable, and playing them in an environment where you're trying to create the story of fighting what's essentially depression, with moves that invite sharing intimate reflexions, makes for an intense game that you will want to play with friends, or in your polycule.
Our session in particular was impeded by our lack of direction, and a bit of a hard time with improvisation. This can be pretty exhausting if you're not used to it, but it gives really good experiences when it works :)
Attached pictures include my character, slightly inspired by @HTHR, and a few other playbooks. Overall it's got really good game design and it's wonderful in the first sense of the word, it incites wonder. Play it if you like improvising as you go!
I need to catch up on @Judd 's podcast. @kensanata is at least keeping me in the loop with a blog post about #RPG and concepts of torture/humanity/playing. Thanks, Cap'n! I am with you both and really like how you simplified adjudication; completely divesting yourself from feelings and showing the simple stupidity involved in treating any one/thing/npc like that.

In light of a question I posed:
…and with the help and encouragement of the OSRIC community, I am happy to announce the opening of the OSRIC wiki.
There is still some work that needs to be done, but the actual reference data is all there for your gaming usage. The editors of the wiki also hope to add some other goodies. Stay tuned!
Whew! Finally finished up the table of contents of the spells page in the #OSRIC wiki!
It would be nice if people looked it over for errors. Time to take a break and look at it fresh tomorrow.
