Unpub welcomes you to the main Event, Unpub 4. The annual unpublished games festival in Dover, Delaware. Saturday and Sunday are our play testing extravaganzas from 10am-8pm. Admission is free for play testers, ample parking is available, and food can be purchased to support the St. Thomas More Drama Program. If you would like to bring your own snacks and beverages, feel free. Both days will wrap with announcements and prizes! Before play testing starts on Sunday,  a free pancake breakfast for our second annual Publishers and Pancakes will begin at 9am. Pancakes will be available until they are all gone, but while enjoying breakfast, those is attendance will be able to ask attending Publishers burning questions about game design and submission. On Friday January 17th, Designers and Publishers are invited to join together for an evening of Dinner with the Designers from 8pm to 11pm at Grotto Pizza in Dover, Delaware. With Saturday and Sunday being busy with playtesters, designers often do not get to try or talk about one another’s games. This will afford all designers an opportunity to mingle, chat about games,  and out in some early play testing time with one another. This is a cool kid hang out so you better be there and a RSVP is required. Designers and Publishers will be treated to unlimited pizza and soft drinks.

Interview with Photographer Scott King

Interview with Photographer Scott King

While attending Unpub 4 this year, you might see a photographer milling about, taking photos here and there of gameplay and designs. You may not recognize his face, but you will certainly recognize his work. Scott King, game photographer, might be new to the world of game design, but has written multiple successful books, and has run a successful KickStarter campaign for a 2014 Gaming Calendar featuring beautiful pictures of our favorite games. The Unpub Network is happy to have Scott on board as the official photographer for Unpub 4, but wants those in attendance to know more about his background and talents! So enjoy the little interview we had with Scott, for we sure did! UNPUB: How did you get into photography? Scott: I went to college and grad school for film & electronic media so I’ve always been into the aesthetics of a camera frame, but it wasn’t until I spent three years teaching digital photograph at a college that I really got into it. The niches I gravitated toward were landscape and food photography and then that evolved into game photography.   U: Where did you first hear about Unpub? S: I first heard about Unpub 3 from a podcast where John Moller, the founder of Unpub, was on the show explaining what Unpub was. At the time, I was writing a story that involved a character who wanted to grow up to be a game designer and I decided to attend the convention as research. So a lot of the game design references in my book “Finish the Script!” are derived directly from attending Unpub. There is even a nod to Compounded in it, which was the first game that Lisa, my longterm girlfriend, and I ever kickstarted.   U: Is it true that you dragged Lisa to Unpub on your anniversary? S: Yes, but a little known fact is that she’s way geekier than me. So she was all about it and had an absolute blast last year. Honestly we were just going to stop by Unpub for an hour or two so that I could take some photos and write some notes, but she LOVED it. We ended up staying on Saturday for over 10 hours and then came back again on Sunday. As a players we had an amazing time and I’d recommend the convention to anyone.   U: Do you always carry your camera with you? S: Lisa and I can be very adventurous and as long as long as we aren’t doing something mundane like grocery shopping I normally bring my camera with us. So no matter if we are...

Introducing Unpub News!

Unpub News is a product of trying to find a new voice to get the news out for unpublished games and events, using a different platform.
