We believe in zine games. We believe in unique games with a Point of View. We believe in games that are designed to evoke a specific experience.
Developed for Game Chef 2019, Ekphrasis is a literary storytelling game. A game of stealing words from one story and making them your own. A game of surreal narratives. A two-player game of making art, physical and performance, interactive and permanent.
Players sit down together, for about an hour, and repurpose words and texts, making them into something new. No matter the building blocks, likely, neither player has any idea where the story will go.
Physical copies will come with original works of art.
If our funding reaches $666, we will complete Claymagic Adventure Hour, a game paying twisted homage to the the pre-cartoon, pre-dawn preachy shows that filled the airwaves on Saturday mornings. The game is written, original clay art just needs to be secured. This game will be available as an add-on.
If funding reaches $1979, included with each physical order will be a copy of the micro-LARP experience, Hi-Ho! Hi-Ho! is a one-person LARP experience that is designed to bring more joy into the world. PDF copies will be included as well with any PDF order.
Risks and challenges
The game is written. Blacked-Out pages have not yet been created, but will be worked on as this Kickstarter chugs along. Printing will take a week or so (it's a zine, afterall).Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
