At least two Gauntlet-affiliated designs in the finalists for the 200 Word RPG Challenge!
My game, 002: License to Eavesdrop, is about being secret super-spies at a real-life social gathering. It plays around with the idea of unnwitting collaborators in a game, in the vein of Vincent Baker’s Vengeful Demon of the Ring. This game felt very experimental to me, and so I’m bowled over and very honored that it’s a finalist!
@Michael’s game We Who Once Ruled is also a finalist. It’s a fascinating way to tell a story about vampiric decadence, rage, and regret using homemade masks and finger paint. Michael’s thread here gives a glimpse into the game’s design process!
Congrats to all the finalists! Any other finalist games of interest people want to shout out to or discuss here?
