It looks like there is a Shakespeare-themed IF jam beginning in a few days: https://itch.io/jam/bard-jam

Looks awesome! I might do this - gives me an excuse to bone up on my Shakespeare, if nothing else.

Shakespeare - dead 400 years (exactly 400 years in a couple of weeks) and still causing people to bone up.

Ryan North's Romeo And/Or Juliet will be released just outside the running of the jam! (well by a month)

That was your first thought when you saw this thread too?!

Well, actually, my first though was Robin Johnson's Hamlet. My SECOND thought was Romeo And/Or Juliet.

When I saw the jam I thought of The Tempest. Only what, 19 years early?

I see what you did there.

I'm curious to see what directions the extended theme to be unveiled on the 31st will suggest. My first thought was something like Die Hamletmaschine as IF, which tells you something about where my brain is most of the time.

Clearly not subtle enough. I'll have to work on my subtletly.

Let me see... Which Shakesperean play would be best to teach me subtlety, restraint... Hmmm... What's this one, "Titus Andronicus"? I'll give it a whirl!

You should watch the movie, it really emphasizes that subtlety and restraint.

I might enter this one. Just one question: Does the game need to be written in Early Modern English (the dialect of Shakespeare)? If not, I'll start reading Shakespeare now.
