the words

Thursday, April 26th, 2012


I submitted an entry to GameChef 2012 — an “Iron Chef”-like competition in short-form game design, generally centered around RPGs — called “the words”. It is a GM-less card game about dark magic and martial arts in the gritty downtown streets, with mutants, madness, crime-fighting, and inner demons made manifest. There has been quite a bit of positive feedback on the design, as well as helpful tips on where to take it from here if I go forward with it.

You can find a PDF of the entry here if you’d like to see the draft I submitted for the contest. As it is still a game in progress, feedback is very welcome. If you give it a try, let me know how it goes.

Beyond that, eXpendable has seen some further development and tweaking, and the last chapter I was hitting the wall on has begun to take more shape.
