hello: A Game for Five Joysticks. TELIC Call for submissions.

This is a bit late in, nonetheless I'll post it anyway. TELIC Arts Exchange is having a call for games that are written for 5 joysticks. The submission deadline is November 14 and selected games will be screened/ played on Friday, December 1.

From the call:

In most Hollywood movies, the viewer identifies with a lone protagonist throughout a more or less linear narrative. There is a similar pattern in many video games - each player is connected by a cord to a single avatar on the screen. Individual heroes gave way to groups and crowds as protagonist in certain movies, like Sergei Eisenstein's Strike, and TELIC is looking for games that cut the cord - or even better - tangle it up with everyone else's cord. TELIC already has all the hardware (like the joysticks), you would just write the software. The games don't have to have strong narratives or even resemble any of the games on the market today. They can be abstract, frustrating, totally fun, musical instruments, pointless, homemade.

We are looking for submissions that wonder what kind of games are possible when 5 people with 5 joysticks are sitting in the same room, looking at the same screen. See here for entry details.

Closely related: a manual for making a video game system with 5 joysticks is here.

If you can develop a videogame for five joysticks in less than 10 days I sincerely hope you use your Great Powers for good, or we're all in a bit of trouble.
