Ecology shares a root with economy, and in the case of videogames, these concepts seem inherently linked.
For Now Play This 2021 we are hosting a game and writing jam with curator, writer and researcher Emilie Reed. The jam is officially from 25-28th March, but we have posted all the information so you can have a look and get a feel for what you might do.
Full jam information is over on itch.io. Read more about the themes of the jam, see some examples of work and inspiration, and see where to submit your game/writing/action.
We encourage you to use this forum to discuss the jam, share ideas, find collaborators and generally have a place to chat. As well as this, there are two moments during NPT2021 in which you are invited to gather for the jam.
A mid-jam meetup which will be help in a festival space specially designed by artist and illustrator Tiz Creel, and a post-jam presentation moment, which will be streamed as part of the festival. More information on both of these will be posted here and on the Now Play This festival website.
