From the product page (hint, you should buy this game):

Night Forest is a ritual game where you and your friends play memories on a journey of self-discovery; moving through the forest by candlelight and forming new connections with each encounter.

Night Forest is a tool that brings people together through the interplay of histories and present experiences, weaving a beautiful web. As we play we cultivate skills of listening, sharing and creating safe community.

I both hear and told a story about being a teenager listening to music. I heard about people’s connections with their families and shared stories of my dad, who I still miss very much. And amazingly I didn’t fall down or break anything (it was very dark and the ground uneven and slippery near the stream). It was beautiful.
