THE THING THAT CAME TO THIS GAME JAM, an event about spooky, strange, and just-plain-weird things that come to a specific geographic location.

Your task: find a random city somewhere in the world using the random generator linked below, and then make a small, medium, or large game about an unforeseen - and life-altering - visitation.

Step 1: Find a Location
Use this random generator to select cities from across the world, and pick a city from the range of selections provided.

(You can also change the options in the generator to select only USA cities, as if that place wasn't already messed-up enough.)

Step 2: Bring Out The [fill in the blank here] Thing
Something strange - or at least unexpected - comes to this town. What is it? What changes? Who does it affect? Will that town ever be the same again? Is it a living thing? Is it an UNliving thing? Is it a concept? Is it an existential threat? Is it an ever-evolving, ever-changing thing itself?

Bonus points provided if your [fill in the blank here] Thing is in some way connected to the town's:

  • geographic location
  • climate
  • landmarks or notable features
  • people and culture

Step 3: Post Your Game Here
If it's not obvious in the game's title, let us know the location in the game description. Where will your game take us?

Keep your game kind to others, but feel free to make it spooky, spoopy, funny, incisive, terrifying, insightful, inciteful, and so on.
