Notum sit omnibus tam presentibus quam futuris...
The Reacting to the Past Game Development Conference Executive Committee for the Benefit of the Consortium and the People (a.k.a. “The Junta”) is pleased to issue a “Call for Proposals” for the 2021 (unfortunately still synchronous and online) GDC. In accordance with the customs of our ancestors, we ask for proposals for L2 Games to be playtested and for “pitches” for new games that need group feedback and discussion. There is a modest amount of paperwork, which the GDCECBCP uses to inventory and vet the games proposed for playtesting. This year, we are able to offer fewer slots than in the traditional years, but our hope is that we can return to GDC customs fully next year. The “pitches” consist of short presentations from practitioners developing games that might benefit from the fertile ideas ecology of the GDC, where game ideas can be enhanced by the cross-usage of extant elements, addition of kinds of source questions, mechanical innovations, and the general insights of the experienced Reacting designer.
“The Junta” also offers a number of workshops, these year to be led by some of RttP’s luminaries, visionaries, and deplorables, for both the benefit and corruption of Reacting as an enterprise. The GDC is always geared toward the development and enrichment of Reacting through an innovative program of cross-pollination and fruitful inquiry, but is usually limited to those with previous experience in the pedagogy as a whole.
