Whether it be a Houses of the Blooded game set in the Wilderness, or a Shadows of Esteren game where you are establishing a new village, you will want to check out A Dark Room.
Definitely evocative for a game with the minimal-est of imagery.
For certain, it will give you great ideas.
Maybe even tempt you to have your players play it, then have the results after 24 hours represent their village.
Try it today.
