I’m helping to promote this jam hosted by my friend Ludipe (designer for A place for the unwilling).
It is a jam that starts in 9 days for “fixing detective games”. Because “detective games are broken”. Well… it seems they don’t know some of our detective games… and that’s why I think interactive fiction has a lot to show in that respect, and recent experimental (and fastly consolidated) interfaces have been applied to the task with excellent results (I look at you Detectiveland).
The jam will last for 1 week, only, but you can start doing your little experiments right now.
There are some sub-themes that are entirely optional. The very first one is “The secret of the abandoned museum”. And more sub-theme will be announced every day until the jam start.
That’s all. Join the jam today! You can contribute any kind of game, even paper and tabletop games, gamebooks, whatever.
