June 2 is the next meeting of the SF Bay IF Meetup.
June 9, the Oxford/London IF Meetup hears from Graham Nelson about Inform 7’s latest progress, and we look at the parser game space.
From Ruber Eaglenest comes this report of a Spanish IF Jam in August:
It is a new competition only for Spanish works, but you know, there are a lot of Spaniards who read your blog, so it could be important for spreading the word.
Let me translate a little of that for you:
“A competition and an online event of narrative games of all kinds in Castilian under the theme of myths and religions, inspired by the titans of literature Jorge Luis Borges and Cortázar. It takes place during the month of August.
A competition and an event? Yes, in addition to the competition itself, until the month of August will be published lectures, keynotes, articles, tutorials, streamings as a fully online event. Material that will help the creation and discussion of narrative games. Therefore, if you have a story but do not know how to make games yet, you will be able to learn everything you need so that nothing stops you.”
So, Submission open from August 1st 2018 at 9:00 AM to September 1st 2018 at 7:59 AM. After that, there would be a phase of voting lasting another month.
Devs could start working in their games right now. And about the very informal nature of the online event, we are open to collaborations, so anyone can suggest a topic to do an article, talk, or whatever.
Last, people interested could follow the jam news at our twitter account:
