|READ THIS IF YOU'RE SUBMITTING A GAME|
|This spreadsheet's purpose is to collect and list all game and poster submissions for the Glorious Trainwrecks x Babycastles event. If you want to submit a game or poster, please make sure it is listed in this spreadsheet. |
Submission deadline is March 16 "at dawn".
|The exhibition will have 4 categories of games:|
1. Digital games: There will be a number of stations (mostly arcade cabinets) that digital submissions can be played on. Each station will be equipped with a keyboard and mouse (or trackball). Every game will be playable from every station, thanks to a MAME-style game launcher that lets players choose from any of the games.
2. Knytt Stories: Subcategory of digital games. There will be a dedicated machine for exhibiting levels created with Knytt Stories.
3. Flickgames: There will be a dedicated area for showcasing physical, printed versions of games made in Flickgame.
4. Physical games: We hope to have physical versions of games previously released on GT. What form this takes is up to you.
|Submitting your game|
|If you have already submitted your game via the GT event page, your game might already be listed in the spreadsheet. If it is listed, please fill any missing information.|
You should at least fill out the game name, a link to its GT page, and what type of game it is (digital/flickgame/physical/knytt).
There will probably be a list of all the games somewhere at the event (possibly in the zine). The author name, personal website, and game description you provide would be shown in your listing.
Please include the controls for your digital game. Note whether the game uses the escape key for any purpose other than quitting.
|Special considerations for Flickgames|
|If you're not submitting a Flickgame, you can stop reading here.|
There are a few different formats people have come up with for translating Flickgames to print:
|1. Booklet: zine-sized, CYOA-style book. each page shows a single frame and a list of subsequent branches, along with their corresponding page numbers. for games where the hyperlinks are on abstract or illustrative elements instead of text or symbols, you can represent each link with a square, coloured the same as the original link. (example: https://cdn.discordapp.com/attachments/418157415591313408/419746245435850753/flickgame_book_demo.jpeg)|
|2. Grid: all the frames printed in a grid on a sheet of letter-sized paper, with optional arrows between the frames linking them together. Arrows would be the same colour as the original hyperlinks. Multiple sheets could be taped together if necessary. (example: https://cdn.discordapp.com/attachments/418157415591313408/419746370774106122/flickgame_onesheet_demo.jpeg)|
|3. Folding: print up to 9 frames in a grid like the previous format, except you then fold the paper in thirds both ways and cut out any empty squares (and/or make cuts between frames). When the whole thing is folded up, only one frame is visible at first--different frames are revealed by unfolding in different directions. (example: https://cdn.discordapp.com/attachments/418157415591313408/419746640623173633/flickgame_folding_white_demo.jpeg)|
|4. Separate sheets per panel: like the grid, except each frame is cut out individually.|
|If you're submitting a Flickgame, use the "format" column to specify which of the above formats you want to use, or describe your own format if it's not on the list. Provide a PDF or image file to print, either as an attachment on the game page or in a private message to an organizer.|
The games will be printed on 8.5x11" paper. It's recommended you provide each sheet you want printed as a 1700x2200 pixel image.
