Challenge your Beliefs.
Shakespeare’s Romeo and Juliet is a tale of two youths torn between family loyalty and romantic love. Moby Dick, by Herman Melville, focuses on the cost of vengeance. The Spark RPG is designed to help you tell those kinds of stories. It’s about examining your character’s motivations, convictions, and perspectives.
You tell a story about a group of individuals with their own firmly held convictions. These characters struggle with each other and with the world to uphold their Beliefs.
The more you challenge your Beliefs, the more Fate supports your characters during play. By changing yourself, you can change the world.
It is a game about self-reflection and personal growth. A game that helps you explore real life issues and learn a little bit more about yourself.
Start the Spark Open Beta
I’m looking for playtesters to try out the Spark RPG and provide me with critical feedback so I can make the game as good as possible. I would like to extend this invitation to you, fine reader. This open beta will last from June 1st, 2012 until
October November 1st, 2012.
The legal disclaimer:
This is a game still in development, so please keep that in mind. I don’t bother with non-disclosure agreements (NDA’s). Instead, I ask that you share your impressions and experiences with the game as publically as possible. Not only would I like to read your thoughts, but I also want to encourage more discussion on the game. I encourage you to speak as much about the strengths of the material to raise awareness of the game. Conversely, I also would like as much constructive criticism about the weaknesses and problems so that I can fix them for the final release. You all deserve the best possible game.
