Hi, I'm Stephen. I formed Budget Versailles as a medium to transport players into original worlds of their own creation using just pen and paper.
A combination of immersive storytelling and player initiative that allows players to explore extraordinary spaces using just their minds - helped along by everyday objects:
It's Versailles on a Budget.
I've created TTRPGs, solo journaling games, letter writing experiences, and traditional video games that explore abstract gameplay, historical settings, and the gamification of ordinary everyday activities.
I'm committed to creating accessible experiences that challenge player expectations and invite them to explore the unknown.
My current long-term project is a Lés Misérables inspired mystery adventure game for PC: Inspector Javert & the Oath of Blood.
