|Contest name||Public Domain Game Jam|
|Contest organizer||Randy Lubin of Diegetic Games and Mike Masnick of Techdirt|
Every winner will get to pick one of:
The Working Futures anthology of speculative fiction
We’ll be awarding prizes in the following categories:
Best Analog Games
This jam is open to both digital and analog games – choose the medium that excites you!
For digital games, we’ll only be judging games that are playable in the browser. This includes interactive fiction using frameworks like Twine. You can submit desktop or mobile games but we won’t consider them for prizes.
For analog games, we’re looking for tabletop RPGs, larps, board games, and everything in between. We encourage you to design something short and quickly playable. Our judges are only committed to reading the first four pages of your submission. Golden Cobra and Game Chef contain great examples of brief, compelling games.
Don’t worry about making a highly polished game! We’re more interested in your ideas and how you use the public domain.
At least one work from 1924 must be included in your game in some form. There are plenty of interesting works to draw on, including:
Novels by Agatha Christie, Herman Melville, and H.G. Wells
