Games with mysticism - an IFDB Poll

by Anya Johanna DeNiro
RSS Feed

What I'm looking for are games that aren't "other-world" fantasy, but rather use one of the following as part of its thematic underpinnings: Renaissance magic, Neoplatonism, hermeticism, gnosticism, alchemy, or any other kind of worldview that contains mystical symbolism. Looking beyond supernatural horror. The games don't even necessarily have to be fantasy--"realistic" games with these elements would work as well.
