Hardcore Freegan Game Publishing Contest

April 6, 2010

Robert Bohl has proposed a new contest, the Hardcore Freegan Game Contest. What’s the aim? To create a printed-out RPG without spending any money. Use a computer you didn’t buy, printing you don’t pay for, software you got for free.

And art and text you don’t have to pay royalties for.

What better source for that than the Year of Living Free wiki? We’ve got plenty of open games to scavenge from, and we have a list of open resources – from software to public domain art to US Government photographs.

If you do decide to enter the contest, why not make your game free-as-in-speech as well as free-as-in-beer? Use a Creative Commons licence and let others share and expand on your work for free.

    Aren’t US Govt. photos free for use exclusively by US citizens?

    That’s a good point, misterecho. See this FAQ for more details:
