Now that #Threeforged is over, I wanted to share my Stage 1 game. It’s called Public Access, and it originated from a conversation we had in Episode 22 of the Gauntlet Podcast, in which we discussed games we’d like to play that don’t yet exist.
It’s a slim, simple game, but I’m proud of it. We play-tested it once, and it hit my major design goal, which was a collaborative mystery game that is also genuinely creepy (which should also make it apparent why Becky Annison and Joshua Fox’s Lovecraftesque is so exciting to me).
To my great disappointment, Public Access didn’t make it through to the end of the contest, but people who read and enjoyed Transmission will see a lot of its DNA in that game (I’m tagging a few of the people I remember who said they liked that one, in case they want to give this one a look, too: Wendy Gorman Robert Bohl Chris Longhurst Robert Carnel).
Anyway, I welcome any feedback you might have. And if you ever want to give it a go, please let me know.
