First Person Scholar is Hosting a Pseudo Game Jam!
It’s not located anywhere and you don’t have to program anything. FPS is looking for written descriptions of the processes and procedures that make up a game, called procedural poems. So, what makes it a jam? First of all there’s a prize. In addition to this prize, if we receive over 20 eligible submissions the winner will also receive a $100 Steam gift card. Second, there’s a time limit–one month.
The jam opens July 1st when FPS announces the theme. You’ll then be able to submit your ‘game’ (300 words max) through the site up until 11:59pm on July 31st.
During that time we’re hoping to see all sorts of wonderful, creative, and subversive ‘games’ that challenge accepted definitions and practices.
