PILOT, THIS IS VIGIL is a game for 3-6 players.  You play out the daily lives of mech pilots engaged in a war of occupation, explore their relationships with each other and with the people of the planet they occupy, and discover what they do in the aftermath of an unforgivable military operation, in which they took part. 

During play, you'll shift roles between a PILOT, who you'll create; the people of JERICHO, the planet engulfed in war; and VIGIL, the pilots' unseen commander, whose orders are absolute.

Content warnings for the discussion of colonialism, death, imperialism, and war, including the possible discussion of genocide.

As of 2/17/19, the plaintext version of this game is available for free!

Created for the Emotional Mecha Jam.
