Asylum Jam 48-hour game development competition begins Friday
Asylum Jam, a 48-hour game development competition themed around horror, kicks off this Friday and lasts through the weekend.
The event challenges developers to make horror games that don't rely on negative mental health stereotypes — like Outlast, which is set in a mental institution and features crazed inmates running around.
Participants must avoid using "asylums, psychiatric institutes, medical professionals or violent/antipathic/'insane' patients as settings or triggers." The website names some good examples, like Among the Sleep and Slender: The Eight Pages.
Developers can enter as a team or solo.
