Your only child has been taken by goblins to the underground city of Ix, where they mine coal and tend to the great clockwork contraptions that run your perfect world.

You want to remember their name. You want to hold them in your arms, again. You want to bring them home.

Journey into the Underground by yourself or with a team to find your child in this short TTRPG of steampunk and urban fantasy. Explore a steam-powered world filled with goblins, monstrous clockwork gears, and endless spiral staircases.

Underground is a Push-powered game published using the Push SRD. The rules-light, narrative-forward Push system features a single conflict-resolution mechanic, GM-less play, and zero prep-design.

What people are saying

"Underground is pretty bold. Its setting and premise are so unique. And its mechanics consistently realize the fey, sinister delves into the goblin city it promises. If you want that experience, this is the only game that will give it to you." -- Operant Game Lab
