Superhero fiction is very cool. Wild powers, over-the-top villains, ridiculous timelines and continuities... there's a lot there to play with. 

But... often, superhero comics, TV shows, and movies tend to stick to the basics: big, spectacular fights, quippy one-liners, problems solved with simple violence. And that's... fine. But you know what I want? I want stories that are complex without being grimdark. I want romantic comedies where the superhero world is just incidental. I want a documentary about what it's like to be kid growing up with powers. 

Introducing: Beyond The Super Game Jam. It's our time to make all those superhero stories that Marvel & DC don't care about telling. It's time for your MCU fanfiction, your most ridiculous What-If stories, your "how about a tabletop rpg that's just Fraction's Hawkeye?" Go for it!

Submission Guidelines: 

  • Write a game about what you want superhero fiction to be, whatever that means to you. 
  • You are totally welcome to submit old games, if they fit the theme.
  • This is primarily a tabletop rpg jam, but if you want to make a video game, that rules.
  • If you have a twitter, make sure to tweet your submission with #beyondsuperjam
  • Be inclusive. This jam is inclusive to everyone but bigots. If that bothers you, don't participate.

This jam is run by Riley Rethal, aka metagame.itch.io, aka @jaceaddax on twitter, aka "the girl who used to be really into stevebucky". Following me is not a requirement, but I will be retweeting submissions and generally tweeting about the jam, so hit me up.
