A downloadable game

Bhaloidam is a successfully Kickstarted and independently-published tabletop storytelling platform inspired in equal parts by Umberto Eco's essays on semiotics, Russian (Organic) Formalism and Commedia dell'arte.

The name Bhaloidam is a modern portmanteau of three Proto-Indo-European words - bha meaning to tell, loid meaning to play, and dam meaning the tribe. Using Bhaloidam's individual brightly-colored and iconic game boards - called Lifewheels - to track your Influence upon a storyworld, you can explore any setting, any theme, any genre, you choose.
