Horror Design Competition Asylum Jam Starts this Week

Posted by at 12:05 pm on October 7, 2013


Indie developers are gearing up for the Asylum Jam, a 48-hour game development competition that challenges participants to design a horror game without falling back on mental health stereotypes common to the genre.

In an effort to broaden entries and encourage alternate approaches to the genre, Asylum Jam competitors must avoid using “asylums, psychiatric institutes, medical professionals or violent/antipathic/’insane’ patients as settings or triggers.” Developers may devote a total of 48 hours of active development time to their project over the three-day Jam, and may work either alone or as a team.

Interested developers can sign up online before the event officially begins on October 11. Devs searching for teammates can consult the Jam’s Looking for Group Google Doc.
