Just dropping in to let everybody know that the Hand Eye Society has now announced WordPlay 2015, including a call for submissions for our showcase. Our mainstage guests this year will include Emily Short, Sam Barlow, the Night in the Woods team, Christine Love, and more to be announced in the coming months.
More info here:
After volunteering with the festival last year, and having my own game featured in it for its initial year, Jim Munroe asked me to take over for 2015 as Festival Director. I had the opportunity to meet many of you who came up to Toronto last year, and we look forward to seeing you again!
If you have any questions, please ask! Also feel free to use this thread to organize turning it into another great Canadian meetup.
One thing I will mention right off the top - we really would’ve liked to align our submission deadline with IFComp, but unfortunately we have an arrangement with the venue that necessitates sending them all of our showcase titles by the first week of September. WordPlay is still a great opportunity to reach people who are just hanging out at the library on a Saturday afternoon and may not even play games at all, though, so please don’t hesitate to submit anything cool you’ve made in the past year!
Thanks for your consideration!
