Game Chef is an annual
role-playing game design competition, where participants have one week
to create a game. It is the Grand Prix of game design competitions, and
winners of this event have routinely published profitable games. This
year the competition is being held June 13-21st. To kick it off the Larp House is hosting a LarpJam.
LarpJam is a round-robin larp design workshop. Players make larps in small groups and trade them around. Each larp is expanded on by each subsequent group, becoming stronger as it comes into contact with more designers. In a matter of hours people with no larp design experience can create awesome, fully-playable larps!
Even if you can’t attend this LarpJam, you are encouraged to design something for Game Chef and plan to attend a future jam.
Anyone with interest in games can LarpJam. In fact, people with little or no larp experience are more qualified to create larps in LarpJam. Experienced larpers and game creators are also, of course, welcome.
