Someone in a Discord channel I’m in was asking for solo tabletop rpgs to try out and these were the first ones I came up with off the top of my head. I know I’m missing out on a ton of great ones but it really doesn’t seem like a bad batch if you’ve never tried one before? Plus a lot of them were in giant Itch charity bundles so if you picked those up, you probably already own a few of these games.

The Ironsword series is good for fantasy adventuring and maybe what I would recommend if you played a lot of fantasy ttrpgs but wanted a solo one.

The Wretched is a survival horror sci-fi game played with a Jenga tower that has inspired a lot of other stuff through the Wretched & Alone framework.

Ex Novo is a city building game for 1-4 players. The designers also made one for building a dungeon. One of the writers for this also wrote a book called Virtual Cities, about cities in video games, which I enjoyed very much.

Delve is a Dwarf Fortress inspired game where you manage a Dwarf colony. The same designer also made one called Delve, which is like Dungeon Keeper and has you building a dungeon.

I just picked up Against the Wind and it’s a very solid fantasy rpg.

Rune is a Dark Souls like rpg that I heard is good. I’m a fan of other games by the designer.

Anamnesis is a solo journaling game about reflection and self-discovery.

Alone Among the Stars is a classic solo rpg where you explore space and journal about the planets you find. Plus it’s available for free/pay-what-you-want.

Dwelling is a ghost themed solo rpg where you wander your new home and conjure spectres.

Never played it but I heard Thousand Year Old Vampire is very good
