Pompeii, 2025. The volcano is about to explode, and nine strangers have come here to die.

Pompeii has been evacuated. The city is empty. In these last hours before the eruption, the last nine living souls in Pompeii have gathered to tell their stories, to each other and to Death. Nine emotionally broken people have come together, to find understanding, to justify their choices, or just to make peace with their deaths.

The Last Day of Pompeii is a storytelling game about confronting mortality, and finding meaning in death, and ultimately finding the fate you deserve.
