The Second Super Friendship Club Pageant - MYSTICISM

Postby Stephen L (inactive) » Wed Aug 31, 2011 4:40 pm

Make a game. Started on September 1st, finishes on September 30th. The theme is mysticism. You may work alone or in groups.

If you haven't made games before, and aren't sure where to start on the technical side of things, just ask : there're plenty of people here who can give guidance.

When you do decide to post about your game, say it's called "Cats Under Fire", post a thread about it with the title "Mysticism Pageant - Cats Under Fire". When you've finished it, edit the first post to give it a new title - something like "Mysticism Pageant - Cats Under Fire [ DONE ]".

Any questions, please just ask below : )

Oh wow! A theme I am occassionally completely obsessed with.
I don't know if I'll be able to enter, because of particularly unshakable Proteus commitments this month.
Maybe I can just submit Proteus under a different name? :P

CATS ON FIRE?

I may have to put that into the cat dislodging game!

Really cool theme, I didn't manage to come up with any good ideas last time so hopefully this one will go better for me.

Oh man, this is an awesome theme, but I have absolutely no ideas.

This is going to be interesting.

How much knowledge do you have about mystical movements? If you're looking for some inspiration, and don't know about him already, go have a read about someone like swedenborg. I find, occasionally theosophical writings to be very engaging, and for a while was quite appreciative of sufism.

Just throwing a few things in here:

Some of the first "games" (or at least, game components) might have derived from divinatory (i.e. mystical, obv) practices.
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Cleromancy

Also from the dawn of gaming, check out this excellent overview of ancient egyptian boardgames:
http://www.eloquentpeasant.com/2010/10/ ... ent-egypt/

On a different note, "World systems" seem to me to be inherent to games and mysticism. Procedural generation? Perceiving the underlying order of the world? Randomness? Fate?

Awesome theme, well done. I'm definitely doing *something* for this - but not at all sure what it's going to be...
