Call for submissions
Are you a writer of short, dark fiction?
We're looking for unusual stories to feature as part of a large, ambient soundtrack in The Shapeshifting Detective.
Instead of using a ‘map’ screen, players travel from location to location by taxi cab where they'll hear a streaming radio broadcast with a variety of programming. Up to five short atmospheric stories will be chosen to form part of this content.
The selected stories will be recorded by one of our brilliant voiceover artists or cameo streaming personalities, and in exchange for a non-exclusive right to publish your work in the game you'll receive:
• an in-game writing credit
• a free Steam key for the The Shapeshifting Detective when it's released
• a full professional recording of your story for personal use (not for resale)
How to submit
Send your story to: email@example.com
Aim for entries of between 1000 and 1500 words - but up to 5000 words will still be considered.
Please paste your story into the body of the email as we won’t be opening attachments.
Don’t worry about formatting - it’s not going to be printed!
Themes of psychological horror and strangeness preferred, no vanilla vampires please.
Closing date : 14th Feb
