It’s December, somehow, already, and that means we have another game to set before you!
This month on the 18th, we’ll be bringing you “Thanks for the Memories,” an original sci-fi piece from author and game writer Erin Roberts.
On the 25th, we’ll feature a guest interview with Erin, where she talks about her process for the game and IF in general.
And of course, next Tuesday, the 11th, will be our regular column from Bruno on Making Interactive Fiction, this time on the topic of anthology games. (New to that term? Check out Ryan Veeder’s Tales from Castle Balderstone, which took 1st place in the Grand Guignol category of this year’s EctoComp.)
February Issue Invited Authors
In other exciting news, I’m pleased to be able to reveal our invited authors for the #subQjam February issue!
Joining the two completed pieces of IF we select from our itch.io-hosted game jam, and the two proposals we select from our Submittable queue will be an original piece from Olivia Wood and another from Cassandra Khaw and James Persaud.
Read on to learn more about our intrepid contributors!
Olivia Wood works as an editor and writer both freelance and for Failbetter Games (Fallen London, Sunless Sea, Sunless Skies). She has written for the award winning narrative game Where the Water Tastes Like Wine, and is working on the next game of the BAFTA-nominated studio, the Pixel Hunt.
She was selected by BAFTA in 2017 as a Breakthrough Brit. Olivia works with clients to create narrative designs with strong story arcs and writes character-driven stories that marry human relationships to fantastical environments.
Cassandra Khaw is an award-winning games writer, an award-nominated author, represented by Michael Curry of DMLA, and a scriptwriter at Ubisoft Montreal.
We can’t wait to see what they’ll come up with on our theme of “love”, and hope you’ll consider sending in a game or a proposal as well—if you haven’t already! You can find more information about our game jam and proposal queue here: https://sub-q.com/subqjam-2018-now-open/
