The Masquerade Game Jam will let anyone create a VtM game
Fans of Vampire: The Masquerade can win money in the upcoming Vampire Jam contest, provided they can create a game in the Dark World.
Video game developers around the world will soon have the chance to enter the Dark World, as the upcoming Vampire Jam competition will allow creators to create a game in the Vampire: The Masquerade universe, with a cash prize for the winner. Vampire: The Masquerade is one of the most popular tabletop RPGs around the world, but many people are more familiar with property-based video games than with the source material.
There was a wave of new Vampire: The Masquerade video games in recent years, after the fifteen-year gap between Vampire: The Masquerade – Bloodlines and Vampire: The Masquerade – Coteries of New York. It is easier than ever for players to enter the Dark World, as there are a number of Vampire: The Masquerade visual novels available on modern systems. There is also Vampire: The Masquerade – Blood Hunt, which is a battle royale game currently in Early Access on PC, and will soon arrive on current generation systems.
People who want to create the next Vampire: The Masquerade – Bloodlines will soon have the opportunity to do so, especially since Lines 2 is not shipping anytime soon. A new contest called Vampire Jam has been announced by World of Darkness. Participants will have from October 30 to November 30 to create a game set in the world of Vampire: The Masquerade. There are no limits in terms of genre or scope, as long as it can be completed on time. Participants can apply to join the Vampire Jam on its page on the official Itch.io website.
To participate in the Vampire Jam, participants must follow certain rules. The game must take place in the world of the current edition of Vampire: The Masquerade, which means that elements from previous games that have been reconnected (like the Kuei-Jin) are prohibited. It is possible to use concepts from other World of Darkness franchises, such as Hunters Hunter: The Judgment, but the game should be about vampires. Creators are free to use characters from World of Darkness lore, including those from LA by night, but they cannot use the content of the existing Vampire: The Masquerade video games. Those who enter are free to do so solo or in a team, and they are free to use whatever game engine they choose. The completed game must have the Dark Park logo (available on the Itchi.io website) on one of its opening screens, and the game must be downloaded for free from Itchi.io, without any kind of monetization.
The contest winner will receive $ 1000 and their game will be added to the World of Darkness games on Steam, becoming an official part of the brand. The second place winner will receive $ 750, while the third will receive $ 500. The first three will all receive pdf copies of all the Dark World books published to date, as well as early access to Hunter: The Reckoning – 5th Edition and Vampire: The Masquerade: Second Inquisition.
