Spiral Galaxy Games are looking for more games to publish, this ranges from taking new games through the development and delivery process to co-publishing options.
Before you get too excited, please realise that we won't publish most of the games we look at, that our playtesting sessions are generally booked up weeks in advance and if we like your game it could still be many weeks before you hear back from us as we'll try to get as many people as possible to have a look.
Let's start with what and who we aren't looking for, yes, a game is as much about the designer as it is about the game itself. We aren't looking for:
So you've read through that section and you're thinking, none of that applies, I've got a game, I've had friends, family and members of the games club do some playtesting and it's been revised and tweaked following their feedback.
Spiral Galaxy Games are looking for Board and Card Games aimed at the specialist game marker, we'll not discriminate for or against Euro / Ameritrash or even combinations of both, they can be short or long, simple or complex.
After you've made contact the first thing we'd like to see is a precis of the game, some might call it a sell sheet, tell us what inspired your game, how long you've been working on it, what sort of playtesting has already been conducted.
If that intrigues us then our next step is to ask you for a copy of the rules, they don't have to be typeset, we know they are unlikely to be final and you may or may not have the skills to present them perfectly.
If after reading the rules we want to include it in our playtesting process we'll either ask you if you have a prototype you can send us or we'll ask for the files so that we can construct a copy ourselves though, given time constraints, we'd prefer the former and we can always send it back to you at a later date.
Once we have the prototype then we'll feed it into our playtesting process and send you feedback once we've reached an appropriate point and things can progress from there.
You can contact us by phone on 01952 587482 or by emailing us at Submissions. If you plan to meet up with us at an event, such as UK Games Expo, then please bear in mind we will be busy and may not have much time to spare and that if you give us something to review later that it may be lost in transit so make sure you have copies!!
