Firelights is a condensed and open licensed solo/co-op tabletop role-playing game about a guided journey across a plagued land. It is a game of exploration, discovery, and challenges.
Inspired by the Metroidvania video game genre, players take on the role of a last of its kind lone-protagonist whose role is to guide back the dead back to the underworld after a corruption took over.
Using only the most accessible gaming material (2 six sided dice, a deck of card, and a notebook), players will tackle challenges, evade danger, explore and create a map of the land, fight dangerous bosses, search for treasures, and more.
➤ Guided by Firelights Guidelines (logos, license)
The goal of the jam is to design and publish a game that is based on the system that powers Firelights, and release it during the month of March or April.
You can price your game as you wish. You could use a "Pay What You Want" model, or make it a paid game. Use the model that you are the more comfortable with. If you submit a paid game, consider providing community copies!
To make your game reach as many people as possible, use the #FirelightsJam hashtag on Twitter, and don't hesitate to tag @RPDeshaies so that I can do help you boost it!
You can release a Firelights game in any size or format you desire. Firelights was released on a tri-fold brochure format, which made it very accessible, since people could print it at home and use it as is.
That being said, if you want to make a full fledged book that uses this system, go for it!
