Let’s make games inspired by and about FOLK TALES & FABLES! We can play them at Big Bad Con, a tabletop and live action gaming convention featuring fantastic games and even better company- happening in Oakland, CA October 10th – 13th, 2019!
Join the game jam on itch.io
Submissions Open: April 13th, 2019
Submissions Due: May 31st, 2019
- Be inspired by fables, folk tales and fairy tales
- Follow BBC community standards (no hate, discrimination or harassment will be tolerated, though games addressing or exploring these in a serious and respectful way are allowed)
- Make any kind of game you like- ttrpg, larp, video game, journaling, etc.
After the jam closes, games creators who have opted to include will be collected into an Anthology and sold, with proceeds going towards our scholarship and sponsorship funds—which will help us bring folks to the convention! Including your game in the Anthology is optional and you can still offer your game for sale on Itch.io and other platforms.
If you want to add your game to the Anthology, once you submit it on Itch, can you also email a pdf to email@example.com? This way I’ll be able to assemble the Anthology once the jam is over.
Big Bad Jam has retained James Mendez Hodes as your cultural consultant!
Mendez is on call to help jam participants portray diverse identities and sensitive topics in their games. Got questions about research, respect, or representation? Not sure where to start with a historical, cultural, or religious topic you’re interested in, but don’t know well? Want someone to look over your game? Contact Mendez via email at lula.vampiro at gmail dot com, Mastodon at @firstname.lastname@example.org, or Twitter at @LulaVampiro; or post in the Big Bad Con Discord server’s #bigbadjam channel!
