That's A Wrap On The Public Domain Game Jam! Check Out All This Year's Great Entries

from the gaming-like-it's-1926 dept

Last night at midnight, we reached the end of Gaming Like It’s 1926, our fourth annual public domain game jam celebrating the new works that entered the public domain this year. At final count, we got 31 entries representing a huge variety of different kinds of digital and analog games!

For the next couple of weeks, we’ll be digging into all the games and selecting the winners in our six categories — but there’s no need to wait before playing! You can check out all the entries on

At first glance (and having poked around in a couple of the early entries) I can already tell it’s going to be tough to narrow these down to just six winners — there are lots of games here that do fun and interesting things with public domain works. As in past years, once we’ve selected and announced the winners we’ll discuss each one in detail in a podcast and a series of posts.

Until then, a huge thanks to everyone who participated this year, and also to everyone who takes some time to play the games and give these designers the attention they deserve!
