If you're still looking for a co-designer, I'd be up for it.
Would be very happy to work with you on one of the things you listed, or will post a proper intro below with my own suggestions. :)
Long shot given the time that's passed, but if you're still looking for a partner I've played through a few campaigns worth of Exalted and would be really interested in trying to tackle that setting through another angle. Let me know @RGM79Ace on the Twitters if you're up for it, and if the likely has occurred and you already have a project up and running, no problem and good luck!
Hi Ben!! My name's Palimrya, and I'd be happy to partner with you for the jam if you're interested.
I'm a novice designer (but an avid roleplayer and a seasoned writer of poetry and short fiction), and the only game I've designed is my entry for this year's 200-word RPG Challenge. (Here's my current draft if you'd like to take a look: https://docs.google.com/document/d/1N4u-k7X54R96Ovbc_NBrQKsEcrdsabLtyj8kyJ6vcac/...)
It sounds like we might be a great fit for collaboration. I've likewise been really excited about The Heart lately (I'm about to start running a Spire campaign!), and I've been wishing I'd taken part in the Emotional Mecha Jam too. So much built-in emotional scaffolding and symbolism to draw from there. I also happen to love cephalopods — I just gave myself a haircut with two rattails I'm calling "squid tentacles". lmao
I haven't designed enough games to have developed habits or a vocabulary, but some hallmarks of my writing more generally are: vivid and highly sensual or textural diction, weird gross sci-fi aesthetics, earnest emotionality and vulnerability, poem-like concision, and hope in the face of hardship.
I took a brief look at your itch page; I'm really impressed by the elegance of the True Story move in the screenshot, and I fucking love that Slime Time Television exists and want to play it immediately. No pressure, but I'd be excited to collaborate!
Should have said I'm UK-based! Time-zone sync would probably be an advantage, though not essential.
Hi Josh, I'm Jay. Also UK based (North London). My favorite animals are dogs because, well, they're dogs. I'd be excited to collaborate with you on something if you're interested, I had a look at your work and it's really impressive.
I recently submitted a 200 Word RPG you can check out to see what I've been working on (https://200wordrpg.github.io/2019/rpg/2019/10/08/AtYourHighnessPleasure.html) and there's a TroikaJam background in my profile.
I'd also be interested in responding to Legacy, or here's some alternatives; Bacchanal, A Quiet Year, Kult, Freemarket, Red Markets, Durance (I'm v new to the itch scene myself and also open to exploring here for inspiration).
Thanks for replying. Your 200 word game looks great - I like political stuff.
I think The Quiet Year has some similar themes to Legacy, so maybe we could do that?
No idea how best to get started with this... email convo maybe? I'm josh (at) vapourspace (dot) net.
