As part of the Unbound initiative, six Vampire: The Masquerade games are launching, all Vampire Game Jam participants, with submissions open to developers around the world
All games launched under the Unbound label will have a streamlined launch process and may receive additional marketing support from World of Darkness. Although Unbound titles are not a canon part of the World of Darkness, it allows developers to express their creative freedom with the brand’s storytelling engine. All Unbound games will be available exclusively on juck.ioa store platform that has always offered strong support for independent projects.
“After last year’s Vampire Jam, we realized how passionate our community is about creating Vampire: The Masquerade games. While we could only award one grand prize heartless lullaby, We knew we had to create a platform that would allow our community to work on the projects they love while giving them the support they need to succeed.”
All games submitted to Unbound must be hosted in Vampire: The Masquerade 5th Edition Story world to be considered for inclusion. Once submitted, the World of Darkness brand team will review the results of their selection and liaise with the studio. More information about the unbound submission process and criteria can be found here here.

This initiative continues World of Darkness’ long history of supporting UGC and the talented communities surrounding Vampire: The Masquerade. World of Darkness Unbound gives talented creators access to a reputable IP with a global audience to share their vision.”
