Making a new game?
« on: March 19, 2020, 07:46:12 AM »
Hi!

So, I'm new here, but I've just finished making my own pbta game that's based on space western media. It draws really heavily from Monster of the Week since I don't actually own Apocalypse World (yet). I'm mostly wondering, how do I get this published? Any advice? Also, I'd love to talk to the Apocalypse World devs and MotW devs about like, copyright and stuff.

I'm very small and have no idea what I'm doing, but I've made a game I'm really excited about, and once I finish play testing it, I want to send it out into the world! :D

Anyway. Thanks, no clue what I'm doing but I'm trying. The game's working title is Stardust Blues. I'm very proud of that one.

Congrats! Have you play-tested it outside your group yet? That's a really good way to figure out where your unspoken (unwritten) assumptions about the mechanics are hiding.

I will soon! I literally JUST made this so I'm not planning on getting this out there anytime TOO soon, but I just wanted to start thinking about more official development stuff early on. Especially since this is the first time I've ever done anything remotely like this. I'm hoping to play test it with my friend group and a few other groups of people I don't know as well but do know tabletop games pretty well, and maybe even a group that doesn't know tabletop games very well at all. Wide range, you know?

Thanks!

I'm here, I'm happy to talk about copyright and stuff, or publishing, or anything! What can I do for you?
