The name 'BreathingStories' has a twofold meaning.
First; stories are immeasurably important to us as humans. Storytelling as a tradition is valued in many ways in many cultures and is crucial to our survival. Stories have become so important to me that I 'live and breathe' them. They are my passion.
Second; every person is a story. A life is one long story that intersects with others to create a unique narrative. In this way, we are all living, breathing stories.
The man behind breathingstories is me, Logan! I'm a queer, Aussie trans man and huge nerd. I love making games and seeing how my design has grown and evolved alongside my own self growing and evolving. Thanks for being interested in my games!
You might know me for LOGAN: An Autobiographical Tabletop Game. It is a TTRPG that is also my autobiography. It is deeply personal and vulnerable. It a story of hardship, growth, and queer joy. It's (currently) my proudest work.

S.A.D. Zines Volume 1 is a collection of 4 tiny, zine-sized lyric games that connect you to yourself and the world around you. Suitable for any age, from 4 years up! Very gentle and wholesome.
If you're lost you can look and you will find me // Time after time is a 2 player game of lovers trying to find each other across time. It's soft, poignant and emotionally intimate. You might cry while playing.
Hi [NAME], I'm Dad is a lyric game that fits entirely on a business card and uses 1 six-sided die. It's a bit of fun and I hope it makes you smile.
Preparing for Paris is a light-hearted, chaotic, yet deep-feels game of dramatic teens at Olympic Academy. Though you're pitted against each other to graduate top of the class, nothing is ever so straight forward. Make friends, meet rivals and get into loads of trouble!

Sapling Soul is a magical, solo RPG about answering a Forest's call for help. What beings will you find? Which of them will find you? There is as much danger here as beauty.
All of my paid games have Community Copies. If you are facing financial difficulty, please feel free to claim a free copy of any of my games. In addition, when anyone purchases a game, I will add another community copy.
I am also part of Amble Studio, a troupe of collaborators, facilitators and artists making games for creating and growing together. We have a website, a Twitter and a LinkedIn. We also have a few games on our own itch page too!
