Blurred Lines is a solo RPG inspired by the Giallo horror cinema and Michelangelo Antonioni's Blow-Up.

Play as a crime photographer and hunt down a serial killer. In the game you visit places and take pictures revealing it's content turn after turn investigating the suspicious sights you find. It uses a d10, a deck of cards, a map of a real city of your choice and a lot of post-its. Become a detective and hunt down this monster! Just beware you don't become the prey!

Just got my print copy today. Looks good, but man I wish they had an option for glossy pages. These beautiful layouts deserve some extra love.

Finally saw something about the game (on Hexed Press youtube channel), and decided to pick it up.

It looks like a very good example of how to take the journal aspects of The Wretched and Thousand Year-Old Vampire and add more gaming tools for those that want more of an in-game challenge.

I finally got a chance to play it.
I can't leave an official review because I'm now a publisher, but I'll leave this review here:

I found it to be mechanically much more involved than its influences.
The cards drawn generally have two separate prompts, which you are guided to by passing or failing action checks.
With the exception of face cards. These only have prompts if you fail. And each one is randomly rolled when a failure occurs.
You have three stats that can be tested. Of these three, you get +1 in one, -1 in one and no modifier in the third.
Each suit is tied to a specific attribute, with Hearts being your choice of stat (obviously the one you have a +1 in) for number cards or the stat you have no modifier in for its face cards.

While there's no graphic violence in the book, itself, the prompts can get pretty intense, especially when failing Spades or face card checks.

I'm thinking about getting this one, thanks for the review; I have a question, did you remove 1.5 stars due to the violent or potentially disturbing elements, or because of something else?

The overall quality puts it at 4-stars for me.
It has enough extra features to interest me in playing more than once, unlike The Wretched.
The Wretched is very much a one-time play.
The variable stats and the action checks help give Blurred Lines more replayability.
But I can see that after a few times of playing, I'd need to take an extended break, as I'm sure most characters would end up dying.

I took off half a star for the potentially disturbing elements, as it was more the genre being emulated than being an outright shocksploitation.
I think it did help that I created a character and played him as 'a character' and not as myself. The disassociation helped buffer the intensity of those scenes.

However, some people do play the journal/prompt styled solo games more or less as themselves. For those people, I'd definitely suggest stepping outside the character.
Don't think 'I/me', think 'he' or 'she' when answering the prompts.

is it replayable?

Yes.
You have stats you can change to the type of character you're playing, and then all the prompts are randomly selected based on the card you draw and an action check.

I bought the digital version and would like to get the physical edition for $5, but there doesn't seem to be an option for that.

Or, was it supposed to be for $15?

My Drivethrurpg email is different from the email I actually use. Drivethrurpg never let's me change my email. Would I be able to give you my email address without announcing it to the rest of the world?

Never mind, I found the link in my Drivethrurpg account. Btw, would the title of the email be a reference to "The Killer is still Among Us" giallo?

Yes! Right now I'm on DTRPG hands, waiting for the print proof to arrive at my editor's house. Luckily it will happen this week or on the next one, but as soon as possible we'll have it here.

Bought it. Read it. Played it (luckily had a bunch of sticky notes already on hand). Digging it.

When is the physical zine and the branded deck of cards scheduled for release?

I'm assuming it's sometime after 3/10?

Oh, that's hilarious. I only read the words I considered words, and not the ones I thought of as pictures. Thanks Lee.

No problem, David. :-)
Would you mind leaving a comment about the game after you have a chance to try it out?
I'm interested in it, but more curious in how well it plays than in its design and layout.

Scanned image
These products were created by scanning an original printed edition. Most older books are in scanned image format because original digital layout files never existed or were no longer available from the publisher.

For PDF download editions, each page has been run through Optical Character Recognition (OCR) software to attempt to decipher the printed text. The result of this OCR process is placed invisibly behind the picture of each scanned page, to allow for text searching. However, any text in a given book set on a graphical background or in handwritten fonts would most likely not be picked up by the OCR software, and is therefore not searchable. Also, a few larger books may be resampled to fit into the system, and may not have this searchable text background.

For printed books, we have performed high-resolution scans of an original hardcopy of the book. We essentially digitally re-master the book. Unfortunately, the resulting quality of these books is not as high. It's the problem of making a copy of a copy. The text is fine for reading, but illustration work starts to run dark, pixellating and/or losing shades of grey. Moiré patterns may develop in photos. We mark clearly which print titles come from scanned image books so that you can make an informed purchase decision about the quality of what you will receive.
Original electronic format
These ebooks were created from the original electronic layout files, and therefore are fully text searchable. Also, their file size tends to be smaller than scanned image books. Most newer books are in the original electronic format. Both download and print editions of such books should be high quality.
