Games for free: CLINGFILM NOIR & ETHERED TAPE

I’ve not said much recently on my longer term projects.

(As an aside, my novel is getting closer to completion. It’s not around 56k handwritten & I imagine it’ll bottom out at 70k. I’ve recently had to write the first proper realisation of the utter horror, and it was the hardest thing I’ve ever had to write. I had to go and sit down for a while afterwards.)

Recently I finally finished the rules for CLINGFILM NOIR – a hardboiled storytelling game that’s a mix between exquisite corpse & gamebooks.

Trouble didn't call anymore. Trouble just turned up on my doorstep and mooched off my cigarettes.

If you’re interested in a copy of CLINGFILM NOIR, throw an email to SEAN at BOOKSEANSMITH dot CO dot UK & I’ll get a copy back to you asap.

The other game I’ve on offer is in very early stages yet. It’s called ETHERED TAPE and is a game where you play either a BADASS OUTLAW WIZARD trying to escape the city or the STUFFY BUREACRATS set out to trap them. It’s based off of the old hunt game, Hare & Hounds (or the French Military Game), played on a grid of shuffled magical powers.

I’m writing up the how-to-make-your-own set at the moment. If you’re interested in taking a look, please say so in the comments.
