This is easily a 10/10 journaling/story prompt game. 

At its base, it is a high-quality and easily adjustable game to fit your theme without falling into the pit trap of ambiguity that many theme-agnostic story systems do.  

My "scientist" was VTM-inspired kindred and his monster was a winged gargoyle-like homunculus.  The urban horror genre was easy to apply and took nothing away from the core experience, and yet I could just as easily see a cottage-core druid's potted plant coming to life or a wizard creating a construct from pure fractaline magic. 

FYI: I've been highlighting Solo and Alone 3 entries on my private Twitter account.
