You are an android, an artificial intelligence.
Made, not born.
Your Creator, your programming, and the world you occupy will vary, as will the scenes you play.
But the question remains the same.
To find its answer is the game...

Oh Maker is a Descended From the Queen card-based game of communal story-telling, designed by Kienna Shaw (@KiennaS) and Jason Cutrone (@JustJasonPls). 

In it, 3 or more players take on the role of androids who, through their own unique experiences and exploits, will come to confront their very nature. Select from 10 distinct Creators, those who gave the group form and function, and their respective worlds - or generate your very own - and utilize the various prompts provided to collectively explore the question of consciousness, and maybe even find some answers.

Included in this game are:

  • Concise instructions concerning Oh Maker's setup and gameplay, including "the passing process" and the X-Card
  • 10 vividly written Creators and worlds with which to explore the question of consciousness
  • 52 distinct prompt cards which help establish and define the nature of your connections in-game - to each other, to the Creator, to the world you occupy, and ultimately, to the answer
  • A PDF for alternate play without the custom decks

"You stand upon the precipice of consciousness. However unintentionally, the creator, your programming, the world you occupy - each lead you to this moment. Do you free your mind and become, or do you fall back into darkness?"

Oh, Maker!

I just played this with friends and it was so much fun! We decided to play as artistic robots, made by a previous generation AI. We loved building our apocalyptic (for humans anyway) but beautiful world and finding out who had the most favor from our creator. I'll be thinking about our quirky little robot crew for awhile. And when I'm ready to play again I know there's enough to inspire a whole new story! Thanks for a great game :)


Thanks so much for playing, super glad you enjoyed it!


This game captures the feeling and spirit of FTQ and transforms it into many, many Science Fiction stories. I just played a game with the different creations of an evil crime boss and it was as goosbump-inducing, sad, atmospheric and funny as my first play of FTQ! I got this game through the Bundle for racial justice, so I’have re-purchased it now to gift this to one of my fellow players and allow others to get a community copy. Thank you so much!

Thank you so much for the kind words and re-purchasing, so glad you enjoyed the game!


I am playing Descended FTQ games at a upcoming con. If your gets chosen to play. I will pass the hat and send you what I get. Thanks for making community copies avaialble


This game is just perfect for my needs of transhumanism and SF story. Thank so much. 

Also probably the most beautifull hack of for the queen I have seen.

Thank you so much! I'm so glad you enjoyed it
